A Grey Space Weekend

A Grey Space Weekend is an adventurous festival consisting of an extensive music program with live acts and DJs, an exhibition, performances, a performative symposiumand film screenings.

Driven by the belief that major tendencies in the world find common ground in the relationships between people, this edition of A Grey Space Weekend will focus on the concept of radical relationism. In the program we aim to stimulate encounters between the public, makers and thinkers with backgrounds in different disciplines.

Below you can find the different programs weaving together A Grey Space Weekend.

Program Friday

On Friday you can experience the exhibition Reach by Karel van Laere and the Hyper Resonant Garden installation by Yota Morimoto and Jonathan Looman. We also welcome back the live interactive broadcasting performance by OUTLINE platform.

Musically, The Hague based label Onderwereld takes over both the ground floor and the basement with live acts and DJ-sets.


On Friday Onderwereld will take over The Grey Space with live acts and DJs on the ground floor and in the basement. Program to be announced.

Jonathan Looman and Yota Morimoto created a space for beauty and sensory engagement where sight meets sound and sound meets nature.
