Harbinger

25.05.2019 - 17.07.2019
Project (a disco party, a lecture cycle, an exhibition and a publication) by Curatorial Studies 2018-2019, in collaboration with KASK & Conservatorium, HoGent, Kunsthal Gent, Ghent University and art@CMS.


In the context of the 2019 EPS-HEP conference in Ghent, Curatorial Studies designed a series of events that drew closer lines between art and science. Harbinger is an inquiry on some of the aspects that simultaneously approximate and distinguish the fields and practices of these two fields.

The project's name, Harbinger, indicating something or someone foreshadowing events in the future, refers to dimensions such as prediction, intuition and foretelling, that play a particular role in both art and science.
