In the light of Copenhagen
Belgium, Brussels
"A new United Nations climate conference will be taking place in Copenhagen in early December 2009. Its aim is to come up with a Copenhagen Protocol that will replace that of Kyoto. It would be no exaggeration to say the Copenhagen conference will be of historic significance even before it has taken place. After all, a good and wide-ranging protocol is essential if there is to be any chance of taking vigorous action against climate change. And there’s not much time to lose. The latest data all point to the accelerated warming of the planet.

Just before the UN conference, the Kaaitheater is holding the second Burning Ice encounter. We are once again inviting artists, philosophers, sociologists and politicians to formulate challenges for art in the light of the Copenhagen conference. The basic ingredients of Burning Ice 2 are the play Holland Tsunami by the Dutch theatre company SPACE and the performance Evaporated Landscapes by Mette Ingvartsen. Debates and talks will be held on the topics covered. The full programme will be announced in October."

nowHere, a space where a spot becomes a place.
15 march - 25 may, 2008

nowHere, is a cabinet which invokes a dialogue on re-appropriation of the private and public domain. Through personal tags and geographies (books, movies, music, websites, drawings, mappings, photocopies, art works, ... ) it reads as a 'certain' historical relation between human, space and technology.

bolwerK considers the constructed in-between space of architect C.Kieckens, within the art space, Z33, not as a sub-art space with a curatorial reading; a cabinet as 'museum' but as a space with a personal narrative and a social meaning embedded in a neighborhood. The active use of the space for living, eating, working, sleeping implies that the cabinet is more a 'room of collection', in a live, real-time situation.

During PLACE@SPACE Marthe Van Dessel will post live from Z33, as a guest contributor on Free Soil, to connect, publish and share her discourse
with the virtual open public resources of the net.

The the conceptualization of the space as 'ongoing', work-in-progress externalizes the precarity of information, issues of copyright, authorship, knowledge production and hierarchical information networks.
