Departure | Arrival | Return

will take place during the last weekend of January at Kunsthaus KuLe. The space will be transformed into a fictive travel agency playing with alternate concepts of time and metaphorical ideas around place and placelessness. Be prepared to step into a hybrid between real and fictive atmospheres with a manipulated sense of displacement and abundance. The first event (Departure) starts with a festive takeoff evaporating you from familiar ground with concerts and performances. Departure invites you to a harmonious sleepover in which you will awake into the next event (Arrival) with a cosmic breakfast, workshops, screenings and performances. The last event (Return) willinterrogate the notion of customs and whether a return is ever really possible.
