Origins

Big Bang Theory

Did you know that the Big Bang theory was discovered in Leuven? In the 1920s and early 30s, the Leuven professor Georges Lemaître launched the revolutionary hypothesis of the ‘primordial atom’, which we know today as the Big Bang from which the universe originated.

In the autumn of 2012, KU[N]ST Leuven plans a large-scale cultural city festival exploring the Big Bang theme entitled Origins. The focus of this festival will be the wonder about the cosmos and its origins. The Origins programme will ambitiously bring together art and science in the form of exhibitions, installations, performances, happenings, lectures, and so on.
