What is Café Chercher?
Café Chercher is a platform to present unfinished research projects. These projects typically exist between the realms of the arts and the sciences: artists involved in research and researchers involved in the arts. Every last Tuesday of the month we organize evenings with presentations, with performances, with music, with videos, with soup and with drinks. Participants are practitioners, students, PhD-researchers, and professors from different disciplines and institutions. They are not only artists, musicians and art historians, but also biologists, gamers and neuroscientists. Everyone with an interesting unfinished research project is welcome to participate! We provide an informal and intimate atmosphere with room for doubt and discussion.
Theory focussed contribution: 10-15 minutes
The contribution is based on research questions, on doubts, on hypotheses. These can be small or big questions. The contribution can be in a variety of forms like workshops, performative lectures, participatory happenings, or a powerpoint presentation.
Practice focussed contribution: 5-15 minutes
The contribution is based on unfinished artworks, prototypes, or try-outs. The contribution can be in a variety of forms like artwork, performance, video, music, dance, theatre, poetry, preferably not a powerpoint presentation.
The format of Café Chercher is simple and flexible. We program around broad subjects which can be approached from many different angles, and we combine related projects. After each contribution, there is time for questions, suggestions, and discussion. The evening is programmed between 18.00h and 19.30h (Soup from 17.00-18.00)
