Breakfasts Talks

Daily from 10 till 11.00
Admission; free
Including coffee and croissants


The exhibition will be winged with Tactile Talks, that try to grasp our changing relationship with the tactile world around us. These talks will follow a thinking through making approach where we will create knowledge not only by intriguing dialogues but also by getting our hands dirty. By tinkering with materials and inspiring thoughts, we will try to (physically) grasp ideas and the interesting notions that come from it.

All talks will be captured in a sculpture that can be touched in the expo and will also be published via our social media #touchbasedae and instagram.
