Belgian and Iranian artists challenging today’s audio-visual norms

 

In Farsi, Kavir means desert. Not as a dry no-mans-land, but a blend of millions of equal particles creating a thing of unity. KAVIR is a collective focused on bringing together visual artists and musicians from both Iran and Belgium, set out to challenge image and sound, originating from their alternate eastern and western legacies.

In 2019, Gouvernement, Kunstencentrum Vooruit and KAVIR are teaming up for a series of concerts in which visual arts and experimental music will double-cross in magical ways.
