Night Shift: from dusk 'till dawn
at Beursschouwburg

Fri 01.06 → 20:00-08:00


An all-nighter with artistic interventions at Beursschouwburg


Breaking free from geographical boundaries, Gouvernement investigates new offbeat horizons in unfamiliar conditions. For the 12-hour long nocturnal carousel Night Shift it temporarily relocates its practice, vision, visual and artistic identity to Brussels.

Joining the ranks is Beursschouwburg, a multidisciplinary beacon for all kinds of artistic expressions inside and outside the capital, the perfect place for a take-over.

Gouvernement calls upon promising artists from its previous and upcoming residencies and public events and offers them a unique wild card: appropriating, embracing and seizing the Beursschouwburg-building in central Brussels.

Expect a remarkable sequence of dazzling and subtle performances, peculiar artistic interventions and other less-categorizable happenings, a cycle of on-site acts that manually transform the building both atmospherically and visually.

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

Participating artists are FRANKIE, Benjamin Abel Meirhaeghe, de zwarte zusters, T T B W R S, buren, (Evelin Brosi & Elvis Bonier), Inne Eysermans, Nienke Baeckelandt, Bert Jacobs, Gitte Hendrikx, Megaphone-Ensemble, Nikolas Lestaeghe, Lin Gerritse & Anna Godzina, Dries Van Laethem, Aïsha Gailliaert, Simon Van Honacker, Stanislas Lahaut, Brik Tu-Tok, Thomas Willemen, Atelier Bildraum, Juriji der Klee, Vedran Kopljar and Leon de Bruijne.
