In the framework of As Tide, a European Network of cultural centres and operators) dedicated to conceive and question art projects as tools for intercultural dialogue and socio-economical development, Marthe Van Dessel and Lieven Paelinck who joined Unidee - Univeristy of the Ideas 2007, compiled a guided tour with a vision on Brussels

Both non-residents of the Capital of Europe, they prepared an exploration of known and unknown places in Brussels relating to initiatives, artists, experts, ... who are actively rethinking the city. In this historical and up to the minute tour through public spaces (squares, parks, public transport) community buildings, official institutions, and private stories, ... notions as illegality (sans papiers), legality (les citoyens), super legality (diplomats) are addressed from a tourist perspective. This meta perspective of the other, stranger, tourist gives us the space to deal with the precarity of existence in this postcolonial society.

St-Air
There are many ways to look at a city, but usually, without knowing, we just don't look at all. Being new in a city, you consciously look around, look into things and look through it. And also when a city changes, we are temporarily aware of its context.

St.-Air is an installation by Sannah Belzer and Dries Verbruggen, originally conceived as part of an exhibition in the HessenHuis, this time installed in front of the comity of regions, Europe.

cuisine interne

The Cuisine Interne Keuken project was initiated in 2004 at Jonctions/Verbindingen 7, a yearly festival around art, technology and ethics organised by Constantvzw, Brussels.

The selected 15 questions around the ingredients and recipes of cultural work. Some of these questions are quite straightforward, and some leave more space for interpretation or even evasion. The idea is to put practice, tools and conditions at the same level, so to question their interrelation.

RoToR

RoToR is not they, nor its what they are doing. It is a mechanism that is constantly evolving in relationships that they are creating. RoToR is a heart of an engine - it produces the movement and provides the action. RoToR is never concluding, but opening connections, constructing bridges, between the inner and outer, personal and collective along the slow itinerary through the fundamental environments: Land, Water and Air.

Loi loi loisir... is a game format developped during a C(d)residency in the festival Plein Open Air.
The game allows you to experiment and try out strategies and actions, which you can apply to the daily urban life.
