Accomplices was held in January 2015 at STUK Kunstencentrum in Leuven, a historic student town that is a 20-minute train ride away from Brussels. Gathered around the subject of a “Final Vocabulary,” each participant reacted to one or more of three questions on words, vocabulary, and languages that were abstract or actual, real or invented.

A book of essays by some of the participants called Final Vocabulary: On Searching for New Languages was published after the meeting. An excerpt can be read here.

Participants were Mounira Al Solh, Hisham Awad, Taha Belal, Federica Bueti, Mohamed Elshahed, Mai Elwakil, Jenifer Evans, Rana Hamadeh, Malak Helmy, Samah Hijawi, Eyad Houssami, Lara Khaldi, Hicham Khalidi, Maha Maamoun, Francis McKee, Fadi Tofeili, Toleen Touq, Haytham El-Wardany, Christophe Wavelet, Brian Kuan Wood, Ala Younis, and Tirdad Zolghadr.
