By West Den Haag | free entry | Reflections Room at Art Rotterdam

At a time when thinking in terms of traditional disciplines — such as art, music, dance and architecture – seems to function less and less, the definition of art seems to reside more in method than in appearance. Within the series 'public meetings' during ‘Encounters’ two international experts (per event) will be given space to highlight this cultural phenomenon and engage the audience is a discussion.
