10 & 11 September 2021
Initiated by Philip Meersman
Brussels Planetarium Poetry Fest is a niche festival, fully devoted to contemporary avant garde, in conversation with the mainstream.
The festival is held at a unique location, the largest Planetarium in Europe: Brussels Planetarium on the 'Heizelvlakte'.
All poets and performers are invited to create a unique piece for the Brussels Planetarium dome. Their texts and the recordings thereof were translated by the Planetarium technicians, into a dome projection using existing – in some cases even specially acquired – images, 3D-projection models, photos and results of scientific research.
The festival actively strikes up dialogue between science, religion, immaterial heritage, (de)colonization and white masculinity.
