MEETING POINTS 8: BOTH SIDES OF THE CURTAIN, BRUSSELS

Dates: 8 to 17 December
Location: La Loge – Kluisstraat 86 rue de l’Ermitage, Brussels 1050

Both Sides of the Curtain unfolds in letters, situations, objects, meanings, and sounds. What began in Cairo, lands now in Brussels, and moves on to Beirut for the spring. A conversation between many bodies, minds, cities, and times, Both Sides of the Curtain behaves like an improvisation though it’s also a score. This slippage and arbitrariness – an everyday cause for invention for an artist in the Arab World – makes for an artistic production that thrives on instability and masters elasticity.

Imagined as a walk into a music album, Both Sides of the Curtain brings mutable artistic practices together. Artists convene and bring in their own tracks if disguised in different mediums – sculptures, videos, performances, concerts, publications. As they come together, the masquerading continues musically, lyrically, sensually, and also in readings and study sessions, screenings and talks.
