Concept of the event: We all will be immigrants, stay in one “Guarantine”, share one dormitory, eat and cook together, eventually go to a social canteen in the city of Hasselt. In that time we will continue work on new art pieces, performances, installations attempt conference at the Hasselt University and will get a privilege to receive individually a genetic code test. We will have an opportunity to discuss with students and be visited by great amount of audience. Our stay as immigrants is a part of a project, so we hope to interact with audience, establish rules of coexistence between 40 artists coming from all over the world and discover a new social relationships, which will reveal new personal relationships in the 21 century.
