Marie du Chastel


I am an art curator specialized in digital and new media art at KIKK, a Belgian non-profit association exploring the crossovers between art, science & technology through the organization of events, educational activities and art projects.
I am the curator of the annual KIKK Festival, the international festival of digital & creative cultures that gathers every year 25,000 people from 50 countries in Namur, Belgium.
I am also coordinating the new KIKK artistic production & diffusion platform: we produce artists, organize residencies and show the productions around the world.
At the moment, I am involved in the development of another project run by KIKK, the Pavilion in Namur, an art, exhibition, and experimentation center that questions, analyses and promotes new possibilities linked to the digital transformation of society. Through a program of thematic exhibitions of contemporary art, the presentation of scientific research projects and technological innovations, it offers the public the opportunity to understand these complex subjects and to discover the intersections between art, science, technology and society through the sensitive, the human and the exploratory.
I am also involved in the program development of other KIKK projects: TRAKK, the Creative Hub and Fab Lab of Namur and King Kong, a biannual creative cultures magazine.
