The earth is round and our bodies are also full of curves. Yet a world without corners is unimaginable: street corners, corner stones, spiders living in corners, our buildings full of right angular door and window frames. An angle is, simply put, a point with two legs, a space where two surfaces meet. What is actually the purpose of all these corners?
During this weekend we will shed light on the ABC house down to the smallest corners.
Do you like to sit in mathematical corners or prefer cuddly corners with books? We’ll explore the hidden geometry of crystals, expand our vision with a periscope, listen to strange stories from all corners of the world, play with surreal stairs and debate who should be put in the corner when (and why really?).
Feel welcome to come discover what lurks in all the nooks and crannies of the ABC House!

And further on the program…
