From 19th century private salons to music festivals | Musical and architectural matrimony
This conference takes place in the framework of the Queen Elisabeth Competition in collaboration with the Faculty of Architecture La Cambre Horta of the ULB. Crossroads will create links between the world of music and architecture. The place of women, still a minority in these fields, will be discussed from a societal point of view and several works of musical and architectural heritage, compositions and buildings, will be honored in order to witness the absolute commitment of artists such as Kaija Saariaho or Juliette Folleville.
🎙️ Fauve Bougard will address the place of women in music through the prism of urban and domestic organization and through the work of Juliette Folville (1870-1946), recipient of the Women's University Prize. She will discuss the opposition between the visibility of institutional venues and the invisibility of venues for women's musical practice. She will also focus on the bourgeois interior and the place of music within the domestic space. 🎙️ Evelyn Simons is curator of the Horst Arts & Music Festival. This event offers an immersive three-day symbiosis of autonomous art, inventive architecture and electronic music. In parallel, the festival has established Horst Lab, a platform for experimentation, co-creation and talent development. It is a series of workshops, created in partnership with the KU Leuven, where influential creatives inspire the next generation. Each summer, a series of four workshops is open to more than 100 young people from all walks of life. The question of equality in a broad sense is at the heart of their work. 🎻At the end of the conference, a work by Juliette Folville will be performed by Eugénie Defraigne and Lena Kollmeier: "Concertstück" for cello and pianoRegistrations required on this link
