Lucas De Man and New Heroes present an evening exploring the differences and similarities between Europe and Asia, focusing on young professional creators.
Despite a shared history of colonialism then and our age of globalization now, East and West don’t really know each other. In our understanding of each other we have replaced historical oriental and occidental clichés with modern ones. West struggling to see beyond ‘the invasion of rich Asian tourists with massive camera’s flooding our capitols or buying up city centers’ or East sighing at ‘smug Europeans unceasingly policing the world based on their humanist moral principles’.
This night we’ll take a closer look at these clichés but also on the global issues we, the European and Asians millennials, share. An evening of exploration full of (panel)discussions, humour, music/performance and relevant guests.
De Man & Other Heroes is a co-production of Company New Heroes and Tolhuistuin.
