Next to the chronologically organised programme, Cimatics festival also offers some extras such as partner events or special presentations. On Saturday 29/11 there is the 54KOLAKTIV performance night at Ateliers Claus, Artkillart stays available the whole weekend at iMal with generative installations, Wim Vanhenden presents his installation in public space, deepblue and OKNO open their doors, Mattia Casalegno and Michael Langeder present their 'Disturbed City' project and Jérome Prosperger will perform a very remarkable 'Invisible Concert' in public space.
54KOLAKTIV is active within a variety of disciplines, including graphic designers, dj’s, musicians, film makers, VJ’s, street artists, photographers, web designers, animators… The objective is to expand the cultural possibilities for young people in the city and build a creative working environment. The name 54KOLAKTIV originated from the Saint-Catherine square in the center of Brussels. For recent years this square has been the meeting place for the Brussels based collective.
Artkillart presents a performance night on Friday at iMal, but at that same venue you are invited during the whole weekend to visit the Artkillart exhibition with the generative audiovisual installations: LAPS by Nicolas Montgermont & Nicolas Maigret FR), GOOGLEHOUSE by Marika Dermineur & Stéphane Degoutin (FR), I.P.C by Reynald Drouhin (FR) and TIME SLIP by Antoine Schmitt (FR).

'Disturbed City' is a series of urban interventions conceived by Mattia Casalegno and Michael Langeder. Brussels has a long tradition of radical urban and spatial interventions within the city centre: the connection between the North and South Trainstation was one of the biggest interruption in the city grown structure. Numerous leftover-places along this trajectory which were generated through this scar become the target of a series of site specific interventions, treating them as “disturbed” architectural monuments telling us about their past and possible futures.
OKNO presents the open source installation 'Thin Synch'd spaces' by Olm-e (BE). Using image streams on the network, free 3d technologies and video projections, the OKNO studio will transform itself for the visitors...
deepblue opens its doors for the screening of 'FLATLAND' by Patricia Portela & Christoph De Boeck (PT/B). Flatland takes the spectator on a journey through a two-dimensional world behind the letters of a book. The story is told from the perspective of a pixelsized dot that is on a quest for the third dimension.
Wim Vanhenden will integrate his generative audiovisual instalation 'We Are The World' into public space. The installation consults several search engines. From the obtained pages it then extracts the search terms that at the same moment are being entered by the anonymous internet users. The latter cannot suspect that their key search terms will be the subject of this installation and in this case Brussels public space around 'Rogier'.
Jérome Prosperger (BE) goes on with his series of intriguing infiltrations of classical music in public space. Check out Boulevard Anspachlaan (Beurs/Bourse) on Friday November 27th!
Cimatics presents an exhibition of Casey Reas' Process series at MediaRuimte. In this work Reas explores the relationship between naturally evolved systems and engineered and synthetic systems. (presented by <> TAG)
