Every saturday from 13.00 till 15.00
To avoid miscommunications, collisions and disappointment, we have set up fixed hours to use our exhibition space as a free flying zone!
The exhibition is opened every day from 13.00 till 18.00. But we will open extra hours one day a week to invite the model flying community to come and fly their vehicles. For people interested in seeing drones fly it is also possible to come in at these times and see the aerial action. Entering the exhibition at those hours will be at your own risk and requires you to wear a hard hat.

A disaster tour with Jimmy Cauty
Enter the bizarre, twisted world of musician, record producer, artist and cultural provocateur, Jimmy Cauty. Join him on Thursday July 10th for a disaster tour and post-apocalyptic spectacle.
For the opening of his exhibition The Aftermath Dislocation Principle, Jimmy Cauty invites the audience to walk with him through this dystopian model landscape. Get a glimpse of his fascination with subversion, consumerism and entertainment.
Your Mediamatic Membership is your entrance ticket for the tour, debate, exhibition plus more. Click on the top left corner to register and pay 5 euro for the 9 week membership.*
Opening Tour and Talk by Jimmy Cauty
17:00 - 19:00
The Aftermath Dislocation Principle is a vast 1:87 scale model landscape which is desolated, deserted, destroyed, burnt and devoid of life apart from 5000 or so model police that attend this apocalyptic aftermath. Jimmy Caulty will speak about this work and take you on a disaster tour.
Small scenes of the landscape are also captured in glass jam jars. Functioning as both an exhibition and gift-shop, these scenes are also for sale.
