Season start in Klankenbos


22 March is the start of a new season in Klankenbos. Find out what you can discover this spring: from an exhibition of work by young makers and listening sessions in Radio Forest to an exciting family game among new works of art in the forest.


Challenge each other during Forest game Tandroor, a brand new family activity in Klankenbos. Play different listening games together between the installations and discover the secret of Tandroor in Klankenbos. 


From spring onwards, you can discover three new sound installations in Klankenbos: 

  • Doors of Listening - Félix Blume: a collection of doors takes you into the stories of refugees.
  • IMPACT - Nick Steur: a fallen stone stirs the imagination, and stands as a witness to our relationship with time and nature.
  • Scaffolded Sound Beehive - AnneMarie Maes: put your head in this sound installation and experience the sound of a beehive. 


This spring, the book 'Doors of Listening' will also be published, made together with Félix Blume and the participants of the project. The book reflects on the process of the artwork and brings together ideas on the potential power of participation and collaboration within art. Like a thirteenth door, giving access to the 12 doors of the artwork, the book contains interviews, poetry, translations of sound fragments, photographs and a contribution by curator Christos Carras.

Come and discover new sound works at Radio Forest Sessions. Every last week of the month, you can listen to the work of an artist in Radio Forest (info point), a resonating wooden pavilion in the middle of the forest. From 22 to 18 March you can listen to the creation 'Movement (Mayinuye)'  by the French/South-African sound artist Mo Laudi. 

Once a month, the soundscapes of Radio Forest Sessions are also broadcast via the international Movement.Radio, in cooperation with Onassis Foundation in Greece. 


From 24 to 29 May Klankenbos will be the operating base for Curating Lab, organised within the framework of Sounds Now. In this lab, participants work with internationally renowned curator Christine Eyene and sound artists Elsa M'bala and Mo Laudi on nature, everyday sounds and migration. We close this lab on 29 May with Klankenbos Afternoon, which is also the opening of the Klankenbos Spring Expo with, until 13 June, a track with works of young makers on different open air locations in Klankenbos.
