Project: DiVersions

Guided tours: DiVersions v2

In seven on-line installations, artists show how digital collections of cultural institutions could welcome very different and even opposing views. Decolonial and intersectional perspectives call for a rethinking of on-line cultural heritage. What if we would arrange otherwise, invent material ways to move with data and listen to metadata’s uncertainties?

The installations in the on-line exhibition were first shown in De Pianofabriek in October 2019. On the basis of reflections and discussions among the artists and with visitors, this second version of DiVersions has been completely reworked.

With: Collection of uncertainties (Marie Lécrivain, Colm o’Neill), Sketchy recognition (Michael Murtaugh, Nicolas Malevé), When organic trees meet the data tree (Anaïs Berck), Material Journeys Through Other Realities (Phil Langley, Mia Melvær), The weight of things (Cristina Cochior), A new fire ceremony (Zoumana Meïté, Martino Morandi), Diff3r3ntVversionsArePOSSIBLE?!. (Z.)

Guided tour: Monday 14 December 15:00-16:00, find us here: If you want to visit as a group on other dates, please contact:

Scenography: Mia Melvær and Cristina Cochior.
