Museumnacht 2019: conspiracy theorists, a meteorite impact and Nightwatchmen

Museumnacht 2019: conspiracy theorists, a meteorite impact and Nightwatchmen

Photographer:Fotograaf: Adrian Allinger

The Young Office has created a spacescape in the Bonnefanten Museum, at Bureau Europa you can immerse yourself in a world of conspiracy theorists, big data and artificial intelligence, and Marres is brimming with sculptures and moulded portraits of people in everyday situations. Museumnacht Maastricht is almost upon us once again. On Friday, 12 April from 20:00-1:00hrs, thirteen Maastricht art institutes will open their doors, for the fourth year in a row.

Just like every year, museums not only display their current exhibitions but also organise all kinds of activities especially for the Museumnacht. Students from Zuyd Hogeschool are taking over in Centre Céramique and the Natuurhistorisch museum, to give their perspectives on the collection. In the library, this results in interactive installations and in the Natuurhistorisch museum in a personal interpretation of the story about the meteorite impact in Yucatán. You can also make your own stop motion animation of what you think such an impact on earth would look like.

The Talent Lab of Via Zuid and Toneelgroep Maastricht, bringing together promising young performing artists, is putting on short performances in the Bordenhal throughout the evening (whenever language is used, it will be Dutch).

Also active throughout the evening are the so-called 'Nightwatchmen', including Mathieu Segers, professor of Contemporary European History, who will take the audience on an online mission, using the hashtag ‘Nachtwachter’, to share his experience of the Museumnacht.

The evening will close with an after-party in the Muziekgieterij, where performers will include Band of Misfits and Bruni Getsing.

Observant has the privilege of giving away two tickets (including the after-party)! Send an e-mail before Monday morning, 9 o' clock on 8 April to stating why you think you should win. Only the winner will be notified.
