Aleppo is a research centre based in Brussels engaged in reflections in art and political philosophy. Aleppo collaborates with, and it is in residency at Académie Royale des Beaux Arts Bruxelles (ArBA-ESA). Aleppo organizes every season an Imaginary School, a program of activities around a specific open question. The Imaginary school is modeled on the idea of an open and free space of research, animated through different formats, and able to bring together people inside and outside academic paths.
It is conceived every time around a question which resonates as urgent in our time, (i.e. «what does performative mean in politics ? », « Restoration : back to the order»
