Universiteit Lichtekooi
Artists on Artists, Artworks and Everything Else

A series of lectures by Lisa Spilliaert, Patrick Van Caeckenbergh, Aline Bouvy, Guy Woueté, Cléo Totti and Dennis Tyfus.

Lichtekooi Artspace is pleased to present the second edition of the lecture series Universiteit Lichtekooi. This series consists of three evenings with two lectures each, in which artists reflect on a work of art, an oeuvre, a period or a theme from art history from the perspective of their own artistic practice.

Lisa Spilliaert
How to survive as a young artist
How I managed to exist as a full-time artist after graduating, even though I did not exist fiscally.

Saturday 3 December 2022, 20:00

Cléo Totti
Corporemotional. To be naked is not monstrous!

Human is Nature, Metamorphosis and Methanol Hieronymous Bosch, Cronenberg & les fèces communes
(Language: English)

Dennis Tyfus
No Choice Lecture
In a No Choice Lecture, the artist does not yet know in advance what he wants to lecture about. In this way, time is “stretched”, insofar as such a thing is possible. What is certain is that the artist will smell and that smoking is allowed at Lichtekooi. Until the day of the lecture itself, the audience is urged to remain calm (if they were already calm) or otherwise to calm down before entering the space, and to visit the space without expectations. Whether the lecture is given in Dutch depends on the attendees. If speakers of English are present, the lecture may continue in pseudo-English.
