Tribute to an Avenue

Between 16 January and 8 February the Coolsingel will be transformed in to a modest outdoor cinema. A walk through the dark streets will be lit up, as short films by famous artists will be presented on the facades and in the windows of the Coolsingel. From dusk until dawn, a total of nine short films will be screened. Sometimes their presentation is conspicuous, grabbing the attention of the casual passer by. Sometimes they are concealed and the curiosity needed to discover them opens up different ways of seeing the Coolsingel.
