In 2023, Artefact focuses on the ecstatic.
This year’s edition, The Ecstatic Being. Between knowing and understanding, explores how altered states of consciousness impact the way we understand ourselves and the world around us. An ecstatic experience is an outlier on this spectrum of altered states of consciousness but of course there are various gradations. We invite you to come and discover them, to let go of what you (think you) know, and to follow our artists through their ‘doors of perception’.
But Artefact is more than an exhibition. An extensive festival and sound program allows you to take a deep dive into the theme through concerts, performances, film and lectures.
We warmly welcome you to the new STUK!
