ARIA (Antwerp Research Institute for the Arts) develops and supervises research in, about and with the arts. For LODGERS, the institute unfolds activities and presentations that demonstrate both the specificity of research and its wide range. Between March 31 and June 24, performances, lectures, discussions and public lectures are held in an artistic context that highlights the rather 'speculative scholarly' activities of artists. Fiction and imagination are crucial research tools to understand reality. Research in the arts shows that reality can not only be examined, but is also made using research. Art, fiction and imagination are at any rate indispensable to look at reality. Without fiction, there is no non-fiction, without art no reality.
All LODGERS are based in the 'Eurocore', the combined Benelux and Rhineland region. Free access to visit our LODGERS. Drop by!
The LODGERS programme is curated by Nav Haq, Senior Curator in the M HKA and Alan Quireyns, artistic director at AIR Antwerpen.
