Both artists and scientists thrive on research and experiment.

They push our intellectual boundars, trying to understand society and the world at large. At KU Leuven, both go hand in hand.

Science and art meet in BAC ART LAB. You too can request a free studio space in the multidisciplinary art lab of KU Leuven Association.

Projects like Seeker [LVN6], Artefact Festival in STUK arts centre, and numerous other symposia and exhibits attempt to stimulate the cross-over between art, science and society.
