LET ME KNOW
FEB MAR APR 2020
Let Me Know — Opening Weekend
7 FEB — 8 FEB
Everybody knows, it seems. We are surrounded by knowledge: every day we inhale new knowledge and, directly or indirectly, help to create it. But what do we know and why? What is kept out, disqualified or never listened to? Knowledges. That's what we're going to talk about in 2020. Join us for the festive launch of our knowledge programme beyond the known and the self.
What People Say
On the building’s awning our name is spelt in various different ways: beurshowbrug, bourscaubirg, etc. Seven different spellings, but which is the ‘right’ one? Who was it who took it upon themselves to liberate Beursschouwburg from the shackles of official spelling? — What People Say, David Helbich (b. 1973), 2012, Facade signage, plexi glass & ferrite magnets

Ooooh yes, it’s a date. For a third year in a row, we'll take you beyond romance on Feb 14. Let's meet at the porny bar and watch porno films, all with a focus on pleasure, respect, intimacy, passion, love and lust. Think ethics and aesthetics. Think feminist. Think queer. Kom je? Your Porny Valentine
Rodrigo Batista The Furious Rodrigo Batista (Side A) + The B-Side
FR 03.04 20:30
SA 04.04 20:30
With his body as a locus, Rodrigo expands explicitness into an aesthetic, investigating straightforward language, gore-pornographic visuality and decolonization as a process of territorial battle.
