Are you smart enough to understand your own stupidity?

In his crash courses Matthijs van Boxsel, writer and 'dumb' old man, shows us in a festive way that stupidity is the driving force of our civilisation. Stupidity manifests itself in all areas, in all people, at all times. Therefore, all research into stupidity automatically gets a kind of encyclopaedic feel to it. No one is smart enough to understand his own stupidity. So, when failing appears inevitable, why not fail at the highest level possible. Turn stupidity into your strongest suit!

On Saturday you can catch another Matthijs van Boxsel performance: then he is going to tell you everything about ‘Pataphysics’, the science of imaginary solutions.
