De geschiedenis en de toekomst van het Caermersklooster + film ‘Malpertuis’ (BE 1971)

Pay what you can

Talk + Film:
De Geheime Levens van Gebouwen

Roger Van Bockstaele (*1923, Honorary Dean, Deanery of the Patershol neighbourhood) gives a short lecture on the history of the Caermersklooster (from 1287 to current times). Next, artist/architect Olivier Goethals shows a large-scale model of the first scenographic interventions that will be added to the history of the building from December onwards. Followed by an informal conversation with the public: how do we write a history of the Caermersklooster?

After the break we will show 2 films:

  • The short dance film 'GENT, 10 JUNI 1989, VOOR GERALDINE NEREA' (5 min) by Jan Vromman, filmed in the large church before the renovations of the Caermersklooster. A choreography by Alain Platel, with a young Johan Gimonprez.
  • The Flemish film Malpertuis (1971, 119 min) by Harry Kümel, in which the monumental 18th century wooden staircase of the Caermersklooster plays an important role, as does Orson Welles. The film was recorded in the Patershol (the area of Caermersklooster) and is set in a gigantic house with an endless criss-cross of corridors, floors and rooms, including a tower that reaches to the sky and deep under the ground.
