    Bad Blood: Secrets and Lies in a Sillicon Valley Startup
    by John Carreyrou


    Synopsis: Bad Blood chronicles the sensational rise and collapse of Theranos, the multi-billion dollar tech startup. In 2014, Theranos founder and CEO, Elizabeth Holmes made giant waves in Silicon Valley. A Stanford dropout who bedazzled even prominent investors and business executives, her startup "unicorn" promised  to revolutionize the medical industry with a machine that would make blood testing significantly faster and easier. However, the technology did not work. To cover this up, Theranos silenced critics with extremely aggressive tactics. 

    Noted as the "biggest corporate fraud" since Enron, the story charts the inner workings of Theranos and the extreme hubris that ultimately led to disintegration of the company and prosecution in 2018. 

    Author: John Carreyrou is a two-time Pulitzer Prize-winning investigative journalist with The Wall Street Journal. He has worked for the paper since 1999 and has been based in Brussels, Paris, and New York. John Carreyrou was born to French journalist Gérard Carreyrou. His mother is American. He grew up in France. He currently lives in Brooklyn with his wife and three children.

    A Guided Visit to the Exhibition
    “Beyond Klimt: New Horizons in Central Europe, 1914-1938”
    Saturday, November 17, 2018
    10:15 a.m.


    The end of WWI and of the Austro-Hungarian Empire coincided with the revival of major developments in the art world. Political and economic shifts led to new ideas and artistic migrations and art networks sprang up all over the place. Artists met up in art centers and international associations and used magazines to communicate across political borders. They believed their artistic identity was more important than their nationality.

    Gustav Klimt was an Austrian symbolist painter and one of the most prominent members of the Vienna Secession movement. Klimt is the author of more than 200 paintings, muralssketches, and other art object. His primary subject was the female body and his works are marked by a frank eroticism. The Woman in Gold movie features one of his works (Portrait of Adele Bloch-Bauer I).

    This is a great opportunity to discover the works of Klimt, Josef Capek, Egon Schiele, Oskar Kokoschka, László Moholy-Nagy and 75 other artists whose first ambition was to break with the old styles and shake up the artistic codes.

    Please note that this visit is limited to 15 people. After the visit, those who wish to may join us for a drink or a coffee in the neighborhood.

    A Guided Visit to the Exhibition
    Berlin 1912-1932
    Saturday, December 8, 2018
    11:00 
    a.m.

    The exhibition ‘Berlin 1912-1932’ focuses on politicized art and the urban challenges of the modern but war-scarred metropolis between 1912 and 1932. With a Belgian view of the German art scene in mind, it pays special attention to an everyday reality that was marked by crisis and utopia, ravage and euphoria, misery and decadence.

    Known as the ‘Golden twenties’, this gripping era comes alive again through more than 200 major artworks by Otto Dix, Raoul Hausmann, Ernst Ludwig Kirchner, Kazimir Malevich, Aleksandr Rodchenko, Max Beckmann, George Grosz, Hannah Höch… 

    Discover an impressive collection of paintings, sculptures, drawings, photographs, films and architecture, and experience one of the most fascinating chapters of our history.

    Our guide will once again be the excellent Lieve De Jonghe.

    Please note that this visit is limited to 20 people.
