This Thursday (14 December) at 5pm sharp, Micha Klein will open Europe's largest urban video screen with a live VJ set. Mediamatic is doing the cultural programming of the screen in cooperation with more than 20 cultural institutions and many individual makers.
We'll celebrate with hot cocoa, rum and bubbly on the side walk opposite to the Escape discotheque. That's where the 114 m2 screen is installed. We'll show a selection of the programming and enjoy Micha's performance a bit more till, at 6pm, the regular cultural programming starts.
