The Diagonale’20 was cancelled due to official measures to contain the spread of COVID-19.

The Villa Empain in Brussels is an artwork that can be entered. Commissioned by Baron Louis Empain at the young age of twenty-two, it is a beguiling hybrid of art déco and Bauhaus. Too beautiful to live in: Empain never moved into the building. Katharina Kastner is fascinated: by the creation, Empain’s Super8 recordings, and the Norman coastline.
