Museum Visit WHAT? (F)arting in a loony bin (13:00 – 15:30)
On Jitterbugs, Melancholics and Mad-Doctors. Upside down… Madness deranges, it throws us off balance, and makes us lose our footing. It leads us to the edge of normality. But where does the norm end and chaos begin? And who decides where to draw the line? Enter the void with an ominous sound of the loved and unloved music of exceptional artists. Enter the hall of mirrors of the distorted note, the wild universe of expression and unfiltered sound. The unheard and the unheard of. This visit together with Aron & Hanne will throw you out of your carefully trained balance. Sprouted out of their love for the (f)arts they invite you to a museum on the outskirts of Ghent in what used to be a madhouse. Nowadays it’s an art museum and next to it there is the modern day psychiatric center. Be prepared to see not only art, but also the late 18th – early 19th century collection of instruments of coercion used in the Ghent madhouse.
