A Sunday Mess

Performances, concerts, workshops, interventions for the 20th birthday of S.M.A.K. on Saturday 18th and Sunday 19th of May 2019.

On the occasion of her twentieth birthday, S.M.A.K. invites artists, musicians, poets, dancers, writers, organizations… to intervene in the museum of today to formulate proposals for the museum of tomorrow.

Throughout the weekend, an abnormal program materializes. Continuous, but without real logic, direct, short, long, quiet, and loud interventions follow each other. They may differ strongly, but not even one will ever lose sight of the museum and her collection. S.M.A.K. caters inspiring activities for children, food and drinks.
