↦  Night Shift: from dusk till dawn
curated by Laurens Mariën & Gouvernement, Beursschouwburg (Brussels, BE)

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.
