During 7 days you will be immersed in Koen Vanmechelen’s evolving artwork LABIOMISTA, sleep on the artist farm, discover Brussels with new eyes, and be inspired by renowned artists and scientists. Together we break the boundaries between imagination and knowledge, nature and culture, yourself and the other. On the border between wilderness and civilisation, come think the Unthinkable !
A unique experience in an exceptional location.

Chapter The Future of Education
Part 2 - September 2022
Re-imagine the future of education. Be inspired by artist Koen Vanmechelen and the unique setting of LABIOMISTA. Take on the challenge to imagine the future of education, building on the ideas and proposals of your predecessors. Come think the Unthinkable. In the freedom of the arts. Empowered by the encounter with others. We invite you to embark on a process of mutual discovery and imagination, exchanging of ideas and co-creation of knowledge, together with 9 other young people. An opportunity to meet others and work transdisciplinary on the way we learn for and in the future. In collaboration with Hogeschool PXL and UHasselt
Chapter Black Stork Baby
Inspired by the live installation Black Stork Baby, LABIOMISTA in cooperation with Hoge Kempen National Park and UHasselt Field Research Centre initiates the debate around a series of ethical-philosophical themes. Enter the border between culture and nature. And come think and debate with us about the relation human, animal, and nature. About domestication and rewilding. About the importance, the necessity, and the risks of migration. About human's-, animals-, and nature’s rights and responsibility. About the role of animals in nature conservation. And about quarantine, safety, and captivity.
We invite young people and research organisations into our three knowledge containers to reflect on the future. Would you like to write, research and brainstorm in this unique setting? Are you open to be immersed in Koen Vanmechelen’s Wonderlab? And spend one or more days at LaMouseion? Send us a short motivation. All we ask is that you leave the final result of the knowledge you accumulated in our Library of Collected Knowledge (L.O.C.K), our growing, open-source library of the future / Open for all and for everyone. Discover inspiring ideations, creations and reflections of LaMouseion Nomads or come and participate as LaMouseion Nomad.
Since the summer of 2021, The Unthinkable Experiment invites young people to LABIOMISTA to work on various chapters for a library of the future. An open library of reflections, discussions and knowledge leads. A testament by young people who, coming out of a series of global lockdowns, dare to seek new insights and knowledge about what our society can look like.
