OKNO is dedicated to holding public events, where the output of projects can be confronted with the public and the essential feedback that this produces.
While in the past these events were structured in minifestivals (Public*), we have now moved to a more continuous approach with smaller events throughout the year.

OKNO hecht veel belang aan het organiseren van publieke evenementen. Door lopende projecten voor te stellen aan het publiek krijgen kunstenaars cruciale feedback.
Verschillende kleine events doorheen het jaar zorgen voor een continue, doorlopende interactie.

A small but flexible space, with an accessible terrace for outdoor events, grants us the right setting for developing our upcoming projects.
From its initial mission on OKNO wants to bring interesting phenomena in contemporary and experimental media under the attention of a broad audience. In addition to that it wants to develop new ways for creating, exhibiting and disseminating art. Art is a pars-pro-toto for culture. OKNO considers it constructed and constructable, and in constant (ex)change.

OKNO PUBLIC #03 is the result of the collaborative effort of different organisations, initiatives and artists. During 4 days it brings together people who have an interest in looking at new ideas for creative work, willing to question their own practices. We hope some are interested in working together after these days in a context where some network based artworks can be made, from different geographical and ideological places and from different content based approaches.

The program is structured along 4 thematic days with cross-overs, and consists of projectpresentations and public debates, workshops, performances and an installation.

Day 1: wednesday 4/4: Tales of a Connected City - (the last mile is the network)
Day 2 : thursday 5/4: on public space and sound practices
Day 3: friday 6/4: on the reinvention of everyday practices
Day 4: saturday 7/4: A = particles-waves-streams // B = the complexity of collaboration / b22f#4

Presentations, lectures, discussions, performances and installations by following partcipants: Alejandra Nunez Perez, Dusan Barok, Tapio Mäkelä, Sarah Washington, Knut Auferman, Magde Kobzova, Apo33, Masato Tsutsui, Jeroen Uytendaele, Justin Bennett, Arjen Keesmaat and of course so_on, code31, mxHz, society of algorithm, Jens Brand, Haraldur Karlsson, Barbara Huber, Todot Todoroff, e.a...


During public02, OKNO wants to research the roots of radio art. We put this into practice via workshops, 2way radioworks, collaborative and networked soundinstallations, live broadcasts of radio-art programs, lectures and performances.
To conclude the project, a week of brainstorms, collective writing and theoretical workshops will tear apart the question and statement "what after radio?", and turn all radioconcepts upside down.


“what if we treat everything that exists within the web of networked and non-networked creative artefacts, physical and non-physical people, actions and activities, as the material that makes up the creative artefact?”

OKNO celebrates the 1000.044th anniversary of our dearest friend Art.
Art couldn't be his illustrious self without inviting some of his friends and disciples.
With the help ofRéseau Citoyen and SilenceRadio.org we join an intergalactic network of friends and strangers performing around the world.

Miniature solar systems, poetic soundscapes, artificial minds and voices, lamp radios on steroids and a sonic vortex make up our audiovisual labyrinth of the evening.

Birthday cake, fusion food and plenty of drinks are arranged to tantalize our other senses.

Politics of Change is een project dat artistieke research doet naar grassroots gemeenschappen die op innoverende wijze duurzame veranderingen bijdragen aan onze maatschappij. Een multimedia archief-installatie documenteert op extensieve wijze deze nieuwe formats op sociaal, educatief en ecologisch gebied aan de hand van films, foto's, interviews en andere informatie.
PoC is een collaboratief project waaraan kunstenaars, activisten en theoretici als gelijkgestemden samenwerken. Vertrekkend vanuit een breed artistiek en theoretisch veld willen we nieuwe en duurzame relaties onderzoeken tussen de mens, zijn leefwereld en technologie, met een focus op de rol van de vrouw.
