Present: Jeanne, Justin, Julie, Ronny & Katleen, Eleni, Vincent, Jesse Excused: Jasper

-Meeting notes November: additions/corrections? No corrections, Jesse will finalize and send with notes of present meeting.

-Board meeting: December 16, 18:30h (Jesse makes zoom meeting) *Dieter Lesage will not join - this will be a meeting focused on formalities -> present board members propose 2 new members, to be accepted during the General Assembly in March.

  • Financial overview per artist2015-2020 When applying for structural funding, we we'll have to apply including project programme - 5-year programme, impossible. Using average turnover of past years, we'll have an argument to justify a certain proposed budget
  • diagram of activities and partners, co-producers from local to transcontinental

*Budget 2021 Jasper isn't in it, there's no information. Ronny would be in favour of having clarity in March. Take up the discussion now so he has time to reflect? Vincent knows Jasper best, invited him originally, it would be good that they have a personal talk together. -> Vincent takes contact.


*Planned activities

January: Reading Room Stengers Slow Science? February 5: Reading Room Katya Ev - Agreement on the enactment of a performance 3/3: Eleni, The Corners of the Mouth 26/3: Reading Room Orphans of Tar First half of April: Reading Room Kobe 26/4 Reading Room Clementine Vaultier, who initiated a research project into a ceramics oven in Chateau Jolimont which will be sold soon. Her A/R theme, applying through La Cambre - if all goes through her deadline is early January, but preparing it would be a good way of refining her application. 27/4 Justin, Listening in the Time of Corona 20/5 Enactment performance Katya Ev May: 2 film programmes to mark the release of the publication 'Drifting Studio Practice' - not sure if the book will be ready early May - waiting for confirmation of Cinematek. Ronny: we do have a budget for it - it's not necessary. Vincent & Ronny: Jesse should recontact Cinematek next week. Otherwise Bozar, Palace, Nova?

Grace, Agamben? Extremes forms of poverty-> monastic rules and life) But she would like to read that in Kunsthal. Otherwise it's still really relevant to do a reading room with her. The Last Movie - Dennis Hopper could be relevant: hippie community coming to an indegenous community in Latin America. Grace thinks about screening it at OFFoff.

*Katya Ev : triple event ? - reading agrrement -preparing encatement / book presentation (but no publisher yet !) - enactement performance

Hisk final show : opening 16-20 dec -> 31 january

  • Internship Jeanne Gilbert including Caveat and producing events. Ronny: an artist's internship should be done as an artist. Some days can be renumerated on a volunteers basis (?) 34 days total/legal internship linked to insurance, Jeanne thinks this is not really a coherent period for an internship, thinks of it more as a project that should be longer.


*More tasks/projects: 7 Walks, Casting Call

Retraites are important opportunity for Jeanne to be involved: fresh critical perspective on vision to be collectively defined and detailed.

(new media) -> V2 / (psychiatry) Het Vijfde Seizoen (psychatric facility, artistic practices in the institution in NL)

-VM Acquisition The Intruder MHKA: Nav wants to stick to the original proposal. Ronny: the artist always has the right to change their work, decide that what they're showing NOW is The Intruder. Vincent: That's not what I said in the beginning. May say no to offer. Answer to draft this week.
