Curator : Joke Hermsen

Kairos Castle is a contemporary art exhibition on ´the opportune moment´, with Dutch philosopher and author Joke Hermsen as curator. We know Chronos as the time that we have. But who also knows his grandson Kairos, the god of ´the opportune moment´, who provides unexpected insights and offers new opportunities? He interrupts measurable time and represents all those inspired moments of beauty and vigour that make life intense. Kairos is the time that we are.

With this exhibition, Joke Hermsen shows Gaasbeek Castle as a place where time is ´stacked´, where this other time is experienced. Together with a team of artists she sets out in search of traces of the inspiring ´Kairos time´. With word and image, sound and colour she is seeking for muted time, for reflection, inspiration and movement.
