BANG! CURATED BY SASKIA DE COSTER

Imaginary City Festival 22/09 - 29/10 @ BOZAR

 

In anticipation of a new building, KultuurKaffee operates as a nomadic cultural organization in the city center of Brussels. Twice a year, we invite a curator to compile a multidisciplinary festival bill that will run for six weeks under the header of: BANG!.

This fall, author Saskia De Coster invites her festival guests at Bozar. From 22/09 until 29/10 the writer celebrates ‘the city’ and the sense of imagination that cities often inspire. The release of her last novel Wat wij alleen horen marks the official start of the festival. The main focus of the programme goes out to literature (in the broadest possible sense of the word), but of course also trains the spotlight on other forms of art, great music and some good wholesome fun. Think: bingo, a dash of gospel, a boxing ring, trash pop, a salon with a former European president, building your own lap steel guitar and much more pleasant surprises = six weeks of BANG!

 

Challenge your imagination!

Welcome.

 

*TIP: Visit BANG!’s pop-up bar during the festival.

Every Tuesday and Thursday from 16h @ Bozar (entrance via rue Baron Horta 9)

CALL TO ACTION: OCCUPY THE CITY!

 

During autum 2015 KultuurKaffee organizes ‘Andermansland, A City Full of Imagination’. Belgian author Saskia De Coster is curating this city festival involving numerous musicians, writers, artists as well as scientists and other creative minds. However, Saskia is not only interested in what these people will bring to the table, but is also curious to hear the voice and ideas of the students of Brussels.

Therefore she encourages all yet-unknown musicians, writers, scientists, artists, architects, and all other young creatives, to come and occupy the city with her guests.

Show us your art, music, performance, text, proposal, model, invention, golden idea, million dollar app and maybe you conquer a spot at the festival at BOZAR.
