Do the cheerful bunch in ‘Oh oh Cherso', the quaint love matches in ‘Exotische Liefde' and the amusing amateur chefs in ‘Komen Eten' mirror reality? Be honest with yourself: you are looking at these programs more out of Schadenfreude than sincere interest. One contestant is very enthusiastic about his television appearance, the other regrets it for the rest of his life. Must participants be protected from themselves or are we old and wise enough to foresee the consequences of participating in reality-tv?

Science Bar Brussels is a monthly after-work science café. This collaboration between VUB, Erasmushogeschool Brussel and deBuren offers the opportunity to experience science during dinner and drinks. Every month Science Bar Brussels presents you a hot topic from an academic point of view. The moderator searches for questions and answers from experts and the audience, to make sure you can learn and form an opinion at the same time.
