Common grounds betweenart and science
A HARBINGER is a forerunner. Historically linked to the idea of providing lodgments in advance, it indicates something or someone foreshadowing events in the future.
In the context of the EPS-HEP conference to be held in Ghent this summer, KASK’s 2018 - 2019 Curatorial Studies designed this series of events drawing closer lines between art and science in partnership with art@CMS, a program developed under the CERN experiments in Geneva. A lecture cycle, a film programme and an exhibition, HARBINGER is an inquiry on some of the aspects that simultaneously approximate and distinguish these fields and practices. Dimensions such as prediction, intuition and foretelling play a particular role in both systems. Harbinger invites the audience to aim at the unknown through both disciplines to welcome what is next.
