A book with a Lecture For Every One

15/12/2020

Sarah Vanhee’s Lecture For Every One continues to resonate as a book. This publication is a compilation of expertise and insights that Lecture For Every One has generated: feedback, stories and memories from different points of view. It reflects on how places where people gather can become political institutions, on the (im)possibility to address everyone and on the value of fiction in our daily lives.

The book (in English) is now available in book stores or you can order it here.

Youngsters from Brussels have something to say to you - Lecture For Every One-20

02/12/2020

Together with artist Sarah Vanhee, 10 youngsters from Brussels wrote a lecture for everyone. They were unable to bring this Lecture For Every One-20 to you during the cancelled third part of our autumn program News From Home. So they made two video recordings of their performances for you.

The full version of the lecture was recorded at Kaaistudio's. You can watch the video here.

VRT’s tv-channels Canvas and Eén invited one of the youngsters to perform a shortened version of the lecture in De Toots Sessies. You can watch the performance here.

By artist Sarah Vanhee and ten youngsters from Brussels: Maya Coppola, Nyala Nauwelaers, Mauro Michielsen, Victor Bru, Camila Lakhloufi, Lina Gonzalez Electeur, Isaac Le Biannic, Lysa Gisella Umuhoza, Zayan Delbauche and Elliot Delvaux.
