ART & SCIENCE LAB / ARENBERGFESTIVAL LEUVEN 20 AND 21 OCTOBER 2018
The former domain of the aristocratic Arenberg family forms the backdrop for a festive program for two days, where the history of the place confronts the contemporary dynamics of the site. The castle belonged to the noble families of Croy Arenberg until the First World War. Today, Arenberg is the home of the hard scientists at KU Leuven.
As part of the Arenberg Festival, ABC is a guest with the Art & Science Lab.
Scientists both young and old will dive into our natural cell structures with the microscope, follow in the footsteps of Leonardo da Vinci, awaken the giant ‘the Golem of Prague’ and make their own robot collages, let Chinese dragon rockets split through space, discover the astronomical architecture and the “geodesic dome” of the legendary architect Buckminster Fuller and more.
Saturday 20 and Sunday 21/10/2018

POSTA SILENZIOSA 10/2018
Every first day of the month ABC sends a mail: “Posta silenziosa.” A powerful image, a provocative quote, a poetic thought, etc, coming from the ABC collection or the web, and sometimes linked to one of our current projects, but mainly just because we like to surprise you. An eye- or heartcatcher, or call it ‘a healthy form of emotional irritation.’
Sign up here if you want to receive Posta Silenziosa.
