Research Nights: Investigating the Zoöp Datafusion Instrument
Collective Research (Free, limited capacity)

This edition is in collaboration with the Art Science Interfaculty of KABK.
If you would like to participate in this event, send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org. There is limited capacity.
Talkshow (€ 7,50/ € 3,75)
Shay Kreuger explores the developing discourse around sexual education with Jamy Joy, talks with Asma El Ghalbzouri about fashion as a political statement and is joined by Sagid Carter, to talk about explorations of the brain: why do we think the way we do and how do we explore further into our minds? STATEMENTS invites all attendees to take the stage and share their own perspectives on the topics of the night.
