Curiosity and wonder.
That’s what students and researchers from the University of Leuven (KU Leuven) have in common with artists. They try to grasp reality through research and experiment. KU Leuven wants to provide a platform for the dialogue between art, science, and society with the aim of examining and strengthening it. At HORST, you can be a part of this. HORST and KU Leuven invite artists who participated over the last five years for a series of talks. Throughout the weekend, a number of KU Leuven lecturers would very much like to share their vision on HORST with you.
