At De Studio

Sat 04.05 → 16:00-04:00


Night Shift is back in full swing, turning the grand building of De Studio upside down


With the nocturnal carousel Night Shift, Gouvernement seizes the impressive De Studio-building for a peculiar artistic night out, unleashing all kinds of artistic creators in every corner, cellar and hallway.

Night Shift combines artists from different backgrounds and disciplines by offering them an artistic wild card as well as an eclectic, public platform which is part of an established art organisation. Within such an informal playground they are free to present projects ranging from finished and cross-over projects to thrilling experiments and try-outs, while evoking new relations with the public.

In a 12-hour long swirling program, the actions succeed each other swiftly, allow for new interpretations and meanings, ultimately adding a multiple layers. From dazzling and subtle performances, through in situ activated, peculiar interventions and installations to other less categorizable events: the night shift is irreversible!

The stamp is clear and visible
the marks are made
the night shift is irreversible.
