Take Over is a collective for and by young artists.

Followed by a solo performance by Verena Rizzo, an Italian musician and composer.
21:00 • New Root Canal, Summer Sessions
New Root Canal is Rufus Mich, visual artist and musician living in Antwerp. His one-man band combines soft synth drones with sizzling acid/krautrock electropunk songs, at once swinging and psychedelic.

14:00 • Günbike Erdemir, Antwerp Folktales
Günbike Erdemir leads a drawing workshop inspired by the urban legends of Antwerp and beyond. We will read four stories from which you will draw a symbolic place, a magical object or a mythical character. Bring at least one piece of old clothing that we can cut up and use as a background.
15:00 • Sadrie Alves & Hussein Shikha, Tales of Symbologies
In this workshop, visual artists Sadrie Alves & Hussein Shikha show you how to practice the ancient crafts and symbols of tapestry and woodblock. (Until 18:00)
18:00 • Ignace Cami, I’ll explain everything to the geese
Trained as a printmaker and sculptor, Ignace Cami is evolving towards more active and social ways of disseminating his projects. In this happening, based on elements of a Belgian folk tradition, the artist pushes the boundaries of performativity and storytelling. With open bar. (Until 20:00)
20:00 • Lichtekooi, Twhylight, an evening with Michael Curran & Duelle
Lichtekooi is an art space in Antwerp that opened its doors in the spring of 2021. Artist Michael Curran previously made a sound piece with all the correspondence regarding the name of the space, an old Dutch word for a woman of light morals. For this evening, he proposes a screening of Jacques Rivette's 1976 Duelle, which similarly explores notions of ladies of the night and ladies of the light.
