[hybrid] + HISK

According to Wikipedia, a blisk “is a single engine component consisting of a rotor disk and blades, which may be either integrally cast, machined from a solid piece of material, or made by welding individual blades to the rotor disk”. BL!SK also refers to a collaboration between BL!NDMAN, HISK and Workspace Brussels. Each year, HISK selects 12 artists that are offered a 2-years residency. By introducing the young artists to contemporary music, the artistic directions of HISK and BL!NDMAN would like to stimulate the dialogue between different disciplines of art.
