halaqat - exploring cultural links between Europe and the Arab world
Europe and the Arab world are two rapidly changing regions, each with specific and varied local social, economic and political realities, but above all with many connections, historical and present. Building on these connections, the Goethe-Institut and Bozar are launching the project Halaqat. Halaqat – which in Arabic means multiple links and circles – aims to strengthen these entanglements and build bridges between both regions.
Diverse voices of emerging and renowned artists, cultural actors and experts are brought together to approach a number of themes from their own perspective. Going beyond the idea of a simple invitation, Halaqat aims to stimulate the artists from both regions to create art together.
A festival in the autumn of 2022 will conclude this inspiring Halaqat project. We invite you to join us at events at Bozar and all over Brussels: from public discussions, film screenings, over concerts and performances, to visual arts exhibitions.
