Jan Van Eyck Aa Presents: Justifiable Versions Of Events/catastrophe

ACUD STUDIO 14h → Concert & Talk & Exhibition & Performance & Workshop

21. - 26.7. ACUD GALERIE | STUDIO | CLUB |
Symposium, workshops, exhibition, bar

Justifiable Versions of Events is a one week event of exhibitions, symposia, interventions, actions, workshops, papers and performances, initiated by the Jan van Eyck Alumni Association. The program is set to test the limits, contradictions and potentialities of the idea of Catastrophe, conceived as a critical tool, a practical resource and a terrain of struggle.
Justifiable Versions of Events is the second edition of the yearly gathering of the work platform JvE/AA, an institutional errance or error, periodically moving to different places, and acquiring multiple acronyms, in the continually reshaped attempt to find frames for a heterogeneous and polemic set of practices.
