Image Science (postponed)


This programme was initiated by Hilde Van Gelder (KU Leuven) and Bart Verschaffel (Ghent University), members of the Class of the Arts. It is a discursive project, reflecting on the exhibition ‘Metapictures’ (Beijing 2018), curated by Thinker-in-residence W.J.T. Mitchell. The second part of the programma will consist of roundtable discussions and a final symposium on the topic of ‘Image Science’ (publication by Mitchell). 


This programme would have taken place March-May 2020. Due to the international COVID-19 crisis, all meetings and activities have been cancelled.

More information coming soon.
