Breg Horemans is a PhD Candidate at KULeuven, Faculty of Architecture and member of the Regenerative Architecture, Arts & Design (RAAD) research group. As an artistic practice-based researcher he co-founded the TAAT collective (with Gert-Jan Stam, 2012), that works on the verge of performance, research and installation art. Since 2011, he renegotiates his relation to the architecture discipline through transdisciplinary collaborations. He holds a post-graduate degree in Curating (ZHdK, 2016) and worked as a curator in Architecture and Urbanism at SCHUNCK in Heerlen (2016-18). As a spatial designer he collaborated with a.o. Eleni Kamma and Lotte van den Berg on projects at Villa Romana in Florence, NAK Aachen and Stadsschouwburg Rotterdam. The projects initiated by TAAT generate spaces for co-activity and instigate fluid prototyping processes as "becoming spaces". The desire of his research-based practice lies in shaping the spatial conditions for "sites of encounter" that invite human and non-human entities to co-constitute each other. In the last two years, Horemans is co-developing the TAAT Live Archive, an online documentation database that enhances processes of open source writing, archiving and publishing. Since 2018 he is affiliated with KULeuven as a practice-based-lecturer (LAB-O) and collaborates with educational partners at University of the Arts London: HOGENT, Aberystwyth University Wales and the Technical University of Vilnius. TAAT is structurally supported by SoAP Foundation in Maastricht and the Dutch Performing Arts Fund.
