Theme Nights

Our Theme Nights bring together academics, researchers, and artists to discuss and perform around three sub-themes related to Voices. Science remains perhaps the most authoritative voice of discovery and research in globalized societies; and from artificial intelligence to big data, the voices of technology shape our world. How can we reflect critically on this paradigm with art, and how do we reclaim a sense of security—if at all—in the face of algorithmic bias and post-truth? Whose perspective, on the other hand, is silenced? As some voices remain marginalized, perhaps we can create alliances to dream up the world to come. New narratives, weirdness, neologisms, and utopias open up our senses. And as we join forces with human subjects, can art also help us tune in to the voice of a river, or heed the wisdom of a plant?

Voices are a medium to discuss, to exchange, and to co-create responses to the pressing questions of today: are we really going “back to normal,” or has something changed forever?

>> Voices of Nature

Tuesday March 22nd 20.00h >> Human voices connect us with the world, including what we call nature. Different words shape, communicate, and reflect our thoughts and habits. This evening, we zoom in on these variations and ask: how do different cultures understand and name the spaces and temporalities they inhabit?

>> Voices of Technology

Wednesday March 30th 20.00h >> Technology allows us not only to modify and process sounds and voices, it can also generate speech and sound from informational input. At the same time, voice recognition software is more prevalent than ever; we use our voice to ask questions to our devices, to interact with applications, and to control our homes. How do these changes shape our culture and our society?

>> Future Voices

Saturday April 2nd 16.00h >> Over the past years the art field has become increasingly self-referential. Social movements such as Black Lives Matter, #MeToo and queer rights activists, as well as the pandemic have exposed weak spots and forced art professionals and art-presenting institutions to critically scrutinize and reinterpret their practice.
