    Non-Human Narratives; stories from viruses, bacteria and fungi

    NON-HUMAN NARRATIVES; STORIES FROM VIRUSES; BACTERIA AND FUNGI makes the mysterious life of microbes visible. In this (literally) growing exhibition, scientific curiosity goes hand-in-hand with artistic exploration in stories translated into dishes by chef/food-designer Marente van der Valk and designer/architect Rain Wu. Ju Hyun Lee & Ludovic Burel experiment with fermentation and the show includes a succession of performances, lectures and film screenings. Follow the programme on the website and social media of the VAN EYCK.
