BAK and Le Guess Who? – How To Be Together Otherwise?

Introduction to exhibition Forensic Justice by Maria Hlavajova

Courtesy Le Guess Who?

Please join us on Sunday 11 November 2018 for a captivating introduction to BAK’s current exhibition, Forensic Justice! BAK’s Artistic and General Director Maria Hlavajova inquires into how art is changing at present and how it is changing the world, and discusses how art transcends its own boundaries to connect with sciences, politics, and more; exploring, experimenting, collaborating, and celebrating the possibility of being together otherwise than how we experience it today.

This introduction is part of the ‘Untitled’ program of Le Guess Who? 2018. Free admission to both the talk and the exhibition is granted when showing an entrance ticket to Le Guess Who?

The talk is also accessible to visitors who bought an entrance ticket for the exhibition Forensic Justice.

About Le Guess Who?

Le Guess Who? is a city-wide celebration of global sounds and musical boundary-crossing. The 12th edition of the festival takes place 8-11 November 2018, in the picturesque city of Utrecht, The Netherlands.

During four days, Le Guess Who? takes over the city center of Utrecht with over 150 performances set to electrify pop venues, theaters, churches, galleries and warehouses. Satellite events with music, film, visual art, photography and markets appear at cafés, hotels, restaurants, wharf cellars, de Neude square and the hidden corners of the city.

Le Guess Who? focuses on artists that feel the urge to explore and expand the boundaries of certain genres. The festival features non-western sounds, jazz, folk, ambient, drone, avant-garde, modern composed, as well as contemporary pop and rock culture, and many blended forms of these genres.
