Knowledges of different kinds. That's what Beursschouwburg is going to talk about in 2020. The ongoing patterns within knowledge regimes make it necessary to scrutinise knowing as a phenomenon, to question our hunger for ‘reliable knowledge’, to look beyond what we are so sure of and to embrace the unloved unknown. Can we know better? Can we know together? Will unlearning what we know allow us to know more?
The programme 'Let Me Know' challenges the coloniality of power, breaks away from the dominance of Western knowledge and opens up to all the different knowledges out there – knowledges from the South, underserved knowledges, embodied knowledges, artistic epistemologies, situated knowledges, marginalised positions ... Let’s get out of our knowledge bubbles to encounter new ways of getting together.
Here it is: the spring programme, bursting with performance, film, music and an exhibition. We’re reaching out to unknown hands, meeting old friends on new islands and dancing together through space and time. Everyone is welcome to come listen and chatter, to learn and collectively think out loud.
