Since 1997, over 200 sessions of stray images and sound have been organised. Artists, writers, scientists and musicians present work in progress, experiment or present work that doesn't fit into their oeuvre (yet). A specific and unique stage for diverse and hybrid works which don't fit comfortably into galleries or museums.

Ulrike Wuttke

specialist medieval Dutch literature, website

Her main research interest is medieval Dutch literature, more specifically eschatology in the vernacular in the 14th century. For her thesis she studied the themes, modes of representation and lines of traditions of eschatological topics in Middle Dutch literature. Christian eschatological topics mainly can be divided into individual and universal eschatology. Individual eschatology is mainly concerned with the afterlife of the soul of the individual after death, universal eschatology with the collective fate of Christianity after the end of time.

Her research has resulted in several articles and her PhD-thesis “‘Dit es dinde van goede en quade’: Eschatologie bei den Brabanter Autoren Jan van Boendale, Lodewijk van Velthem und Jan van Leeuwen (14. Jh.)”
