Up In The Air

ARTEFACT 2016 | UP IN THE AIR

STUCK Kunstencentrum, Leuven

9 February – 21 February 2016

 Artefact 2016: Up in the Air,  aimed to investigate the poetic, political and economic parameters that guide our relation to airspace. The spiritual dimensions that seem to be closely related to an ‘up-there’, the hopes and dreams for which we turn our gaze up, the attempts to understand the intangible and sometimes invisible stand in stark contrast to the more practical political and economic approaches that organize and regulate our use of air space in areas such as transportation, scanning and surveillance, and air quality control.

Artefact is an initiative of the Province Vlaams-Brabant i.c.w. Stad Leuven-Supported by KU Leuven in the context of the policy guideline ‘art and science’.
