BARTALK is a free interdisciplinary lecture/performance series that takes place in different bars in the Hague. Each event has a different theme and consists of 15 minute presentations on alternative histories, eccentric science, and other esoteric knowledge.
BARTALK curates research based lectures by theorists, makers, thinkers, autodidacts, tinkerers, performers, polemicists, and everyone in between and beyond. We define research broadly to include the practical, theoretical, empirical, lived experience, archaeological, and experimental.
Since 2015, BARTALK has hosted events featuring presentations by speakers in the fields of physics, philosophy, math, visual art, performance, movement, kink, music, poetry, radio, architecture, and design amongst others.
Ultimately, BARTALK is a model of knowledge-sharing as community-building.
