25 October, Leitmotiv

What is the future of advertisement? A very relevant question. Are ads in print or on television still effective? Are we slowly reaching the point of overkill online? Do you want hear how advertisers and advertisement makers are thinking about this topic? Leitmotiv is organising a debate in their studio. Registration is required.


Drawing is Thinking – Thinking is Moving
26 October, LUCA Ghent

Drawing is Thinking – Thinking is Moving investigates the role of the drawing in the genesis of images. Departing from different angles, various lecturers will zoom in on the relevance, range and meaning of the popular analogy between drawing and thinking.
