Hans Van Regenmortel
Affiliation: Musica Impulse Centre
Expertise: I am fascinated by musicality as a universal phenomenon and music as 'the prototype of the arts'. What do they teach us about what it means to be human? How can we relate to each other? How can we relate to the world? Can we understand our need for aesthetic experiences - as shaped within the arts - as the cultural form of our earliest interactions? These are the core elements that fuel my practice.

Expertise: Margherita (Italy/the Netherlands, 1991) is an artist with a strong curiosity for tactile perception at the intersection of art and sensory well-being. She researches and translates stories and emotions through unconventional ways of using materials - creating three-dimensional patterns and surfaces. In a society that relies mainly on sight, she wants to make it possible to ‘see’ with other senses: in her practice, tactility is the medium through which she communicates and in her works, she often explores the tactile perception to create a more intimate and interactive relationship between the space, the work and the visitors.
