During a two day event, a.pass welcomes a gathering of researchers, artists, a.pass program participants and public to engage with the struggle of being an artist commoner today, and the role of (educational) institutions in bringing this subject about.

Pharmakon - The young Portuguese artist Maria Lucia Cruz Correia takes you on a walk to a location in the city, a place where our way of life, ecology and politics meet. Once there, you select a spot where you can comfortably spend 4 hours. You are given a text to reflect upon using a ‘thinking manual’. The location selected is linked to a particular organ.

Pharmakon - The Estonian artist Maike Lond reports on her attempts to cooperate financially with the private sector. She tried in every way possible: with standard sponsor deals, as an employee, in public presentations, live debates on Estonian television etc. Her (rather romantic) goal was to become financially independent from curators and subsidising bodies.

The Monastery is coming to the Kaaistudios for the fourth time, to close the RE:RITE season with a final day of rituals. You can join this experimental spiritual urban community for one ritual or for the whole day, to become conscious of your entire being and of everything going on around you. The rituals during this closing event are focused on ‘Buying Time’: how can we redefine our approach to time and our perception of public space.

In the whirlwind of work, relationships, deadlines and discussions, we sometimes get distracted from the most important things in life: feeling alive and being conscious of our entire being and everything around you. The Monastery is an experimental spiritual urban community that aims to do exactly that: by performing daily rituals and making every action an intense experience.

For the second time this season, The Monastery is coming to the Kaaistudios with A-LIFE, a ritual day that is patterned to the rhythm of the seasons. This time, the urban monks guide you through the transition from autumn to winter.

The Monastery is returning to the Kaaistudios – which has become a familiar environment – for a special, two-day event. This time, A-LIFE combines the celebration of spring with the queerness of practice during an experimental monastic happening for women, men, and those who have left this binary far behind. Expect a monastic day in silence – with the occasional rave – in which you deconstruct and deepen the aesthetics of the monk.

In 2005 the Argentinian collective Etcetera, a group of artists, poets, actors and puppeteers, founded Errorist Internacional on the occasion of George W. Bush’s visit to the Summit of the Americas in Mar del Plata. Their motto was ‘Todos somos erroristas’. Indeed, in our capitalist society to err is human, and even necessary.

How do we, urban animals of the 21st century, relate to ‘other animals’? German choreographer Martin Nachbar aims to make our relationships with animals transparent through dance. The performance imitates animals in their habitat and in the habitat of contemporary dance (the theatre) and examines the possibilities of moving, feeling and thinking like animals.

The Brussels theatre-maker Isabelle Dumont has put together a ‘cabinet of curiosities’, a colourful collection of ‘artificialia and naturalia’ – art objects and wonders of animal kingdom. She was guided by her amazement, always welcoming surprises, and is now sharing her delight with the public. On the basis of this collection she tells a story about the relationship between man and the animals down the ages.
