Barbara Raes currently conducts research at the KASK and she has founded Beyond The Spoken, a workspace for unrecognized loss. She creates farewell rituals and helps people to make time to process transitional moments in their lives. Her old love for art is never far away, however, and it has also been given a place within her practice.
