13/05 - 17/05

Over the course of five days, 10 critics, vloggers, and video artists are diving into the festival with one goal in mind: to pop back after five days with ready criticisms of all the performances and exhibitions they saw. And they are not doing so with their pen. They’re aiming at new forms of contemplation, in image and/or sound, as an experiment on art criticism for all the senses. As a critic, can you manage without black letters on a white sheet? Can you do extra justice to a performance by assessing it cross-medially and interdisciplinarily? Cross Critique forms part of the practical research on additional possibilities for criticism in visual and digital times. The results will be disclosed online at the end of the festival.

Cross Critique is an initiative of the culture-magazine rekto:verso (BE), Domein voor Kunstkritiek (NL), and Institute of Network Cultures (NL)
Under the guidance of Bart Rooms, amongst others
