North of Brussels
2020 marked great ambitions. But who could have expected the outcome of these first six months? The world has been turned upside down, inside out. Our planet, our society, and humankind at large is being challenged in unforeseeable ways. The ‘normal’ has disappeared, but it wasn’t normal to begin with. More than ever, the pandemic has unearthed continuous injustices and power discrepancies that need to be abolished. Horst wants to forget the “new normal” of detachment, suspicion and apathy towards one another. We want to take up the pieces of this shattered reality and work on our empathy, our engagement and allyship with one another. It is time to heal.
A summer of gatherings, warming up to human union.
This summer Horst builds places for communion. Our home Asiat will transform to a space for exchange, dialogue and celebration. In view of the years to come, we will set camp at Asiat to delve deeper into what is locally at stake, and connect this to global concerns that are close to our hearts.
An overgrown pond set in a military ruin, Mediterranean foodsharing and a variety of DJ-sets & performances. These three pillars define Horst’s Restaurant Club. In an open-roof warehouse we connect with each other. You will be left in the hands of charismatic masters of ceremony, who will infuse your dinner with friends into a playful and interactive evening. Food is cooked by the talented & local BarBoufz.
The open-roof warehouse also functions as the backdrop for Sleeping Concerts on July 23 and July 30. Artists will be invited for tranquil and dreamy soundscapes field recordings and ambient dj-sets. We will spend the night together, under the care of a musician, and share a communal breakfast in the morning.
Update: Extra measures have been taken by the government & local authorities. We regret to inform you that the Sleeping Concert on July 30 has been cancelled.
