The brick - According to the Dictionary, literally: a baked stone. Big, small, in lots of colors, found in your home, on the street, in squares. You probably know bricks mostly as a building material. But what else could you build with bricks? And why do artists find ordinary brick so interesting today? Kunsthal KAdE is creating an exhibition on brick this fall, featuring work by architects, artists and designers who are all inspired by brick in their own way. Join the lecture series and become a true brick connoisseur!
