Reminder: Architecture of Crisis

Pistalk: Thursday May 19, 20:30

Have you ever wondered what it is like to survive in a spaceship? At this edition of Pis'talk, we explore how the bleak landscapes of our own planet can serve to reveal many things about human intellectual and spiritual challenges and can connect the gaps between physiology and technology. We'll learn how to create oxygen, water and food from waste, while considering the possibilities of isolation, food scarcity and space-age technology that awaits our future. With talks by artist Angelo Vermeulen and Christopher Lasseur (European Space Agency) and a video performance by Kamiel Rongen.

Drinks and food from 18:00, talk at 20:30.
