Sun 15 May

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 symposium, experience dinners and 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 Sunday

On Sunday we wind down with screenings in the basement curated by WYSIWYG. With a background in graphic design and Film, cinema-collective WYSIWYG (What You See Is What You Get) aims to stimulate an alternative ‘cinema-culture’ by re-examining the way that we look at films today. Often in collaboration with artists, filmmakers, writer and designers, to create stimulating screening experiences that question what we lack in film.

You can experience the exhibition Reach by Karel van Laere and the Hyper Resonant Garden installation by Yota Morimoto and Jonathan Looman.


Cinema platform WYSIWYG (What You See Is What You Get) descends to the basement to host a film programme that juxtaposes the cozy and artificial sides of food consumption. In the harsh, concrete space of the basement, WYSIWYG collaborates with artist Adam Centko to create a lush and picture perfect piece of nature to settle down in. In between a continuous film programme, one screening every hour, Basse Stittgen & Juan Arturo García’s Blood-related (9 min, 2020, commissioned by Het Nieuwe Instituut) will be shown, offering a clinical view on how the livestock farming industry hides the enormous amounts of blood resulting from slaughtering cows. Following this invisible trail of blood, the film investigates the architecture and tools that determine the value of material once considered the substance of life.

Reach: Exhibition

During A Grey Space Weekend Karel van Laere presents new works and performances alongside a selection of older works in a solo exhibition.

Hyper Resonant Garden

Hyper Resonant Garden is an installation featured in the garden of The Grey Space. Jonathan Looman and Yota Morimoto created a space for beauty and sensory engagement where sight meets sound and sound meets nature. Jonathan Looman is a multifaceted designer and urban gardener running the project HyperGarden. Yota Morimoto is a composer, sound artist and researcher.
