Arena de Evolución UHasselt
Artists, scientists and students from Belgium and abroad
MARCH 17, 2015 AT 7 P.M.
BOXING RING, AGORA CAMPUS DIEPENBEEK
On March 17 Hasselt University will host the Arena de Evolución for a lively exchange between art and science. Come and join this battle of ideas at the Agora boxing ring!
During UPPERCUT – Arena de Evolución students will challenge experts and artists in an actual boxing ring on five different issues: Immunity, Ecology, Climate, Fertility, Ethics and Diversity. Each topic is introduced by a video, followed by three short but fierce rounds where students will fire their questions at the scientists/experts in the other corner. Indra Dewitte will referee the debates, Dirk Draulans will make the closing statement.
The information and knowledge gained through these battles will be collected in the Library of Collected Knowledge (LOCK), which artist Koen Vanmechelen will present to the world at the Havana Biennial in May. Previous arenas were hosted in Hasselt, Arusha and London.
