The Danish collective A Kassen works with performative installations and sculpture, humor and surprise, and their interventions are sometimes so discreet or absurd that they don't get noticed. They might perform the actions themselves, but mostly use extras or even monstrous machines they construct. They examine and experiment with the borders between art and non-art, as well as self-invented systems that change the functions of things within a given space.

The Knight's Move
Survey season 2014-2015
is a series of lectures by eminent international speakers who stand out by their unusual, enlightening and inspirational visions concerning the city, urbanity, the public domain, and community. Just as the knight moves in an atypical and unusual way across the chessboard, Stroom Den Haag likewise wants to cut across all disciplines and thus stimulate rethinking the city.

For the 2014-2015 series Stroom Den Haag invited as partners: Lectoraat Art & Public Space (LAPS) and Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam. Two of the lectures will also take place at Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam.

Media partners of The Knight's Move 2014-2015 are The Pop-Up City and Open!

The Knight's Move lectures are made possible by Creative Industries Fund NL and the Haagse Bluf Fonds.
