___ About the BeHave concept
BeHave reflects on possible ways of being together in the specific context of the regeneration of the Hauts-Fourneaux of Belval, a partly closed steel factory. BeHave isolates the words be and have to suggest that Belval oscillates between two worlds, the material/historical world and the immaterial/intellectual world.questions the “order of things’ and the role the artist can play in disrupting what are considered to be norms: in terms of urban planning, the objects which surround us, societal behaviour, molecular interaction and software programming.
