KAOS Talk: Elien Ronse

Coproduction 2022

'Doing friendship': a KAOS Talk with Elien Ronse, Mirra Markhaëva & Ignace Wouters

Elien Ronse - De staminee 16:9

Elien Ronse is working in residency at the psycho-social center St. Alexius in Brussels. She spends most of her time in the 'living room', where people ask each other how they are and conversations go from smalltalk to intimate topics. In this context Elien questions how care takes place in our everyday relations and what the meaning of friendship can be in our adult lives.

For this KAOS Talk at Museum Dr. Guislain (in Ghent and online) Elien invites two artists to dive into the topic of 'doing friendship'. Mirra Markhaëva is an artist and activist who migrated to Belgium from the Republic of Buryatia. She will share her experiences and ideas on individualism and collectivism. Ignace Wouters is an artist who works at St. Alexius. He’ll discuss how friendship or 'friendly relations' are part of his work context, both as an employee of the hospital and as an artist.

KAOS-coordinator Mike Michiels moderates the talk. The talk is in English but we can translate to Dutch with pleasure. Very welcome to join, listen and share your thoughts about friendship.
