EL ANGEL EXTERMINADOR Luis Bunuel 1962.preview

In these 10 days we will work together. That would be the most important. The togetherness. Working together, spending time together. 

Agenda???  What is that, maybe something to discover???

I will ask you a lot of questions, over and over. From the begining till the end.

I will question you, you will question everybody, we will experience suspiciousness I guess. 

In which conspiracy are you involved at the moment?

Angles, all the time different ones.

We will trip for sure, all kinds of trips or maybe not all kinds but different trips.

We will share expectations. 

We will build new fictions and devises.

We will not go out, we will be trapped like el angel exterminador from Buñuel and we will not go, the negative of el angel exterminador. We will watch this movie again.

We will cook for each other.

We will sleep together.

We will gather people, as many as we can. We have to beat the Guinness record.

We will spend time, we will understand time and the time we want and what we want from time.

what are we going to do together that we cannot do alone?

we will build tension, all kind and we will have to hold it. how? together.

we will work in continuity. what is that?

also in friendship.

in simultaneity.

where the fuck are you?

Is there any infiltrant among us?

What are you doing here?

Follow me through the rabbit hole and lets visit Wonderland.

block information


the new structure for dedicated mentorings (3×2 or 2×3)

The dedicated mentors for this block are Abu Ali * Toni Serra, Bart Van den Eynde, Lilia Mestre and Elke Van Campenhout. Since some participants preferred to have a more in-depth contact with their mentors, we changed the set-up of the sessions as follows: out of the four mentors each participant chooses

-3 mentors and has 2 sessions with each of them (regular)


-2 mentors and has 3 sessions with each of them (intense)

Since the dedicated mentors each are responsible for one day during the first Workshop on Artistic Research, we will be able to decide on who, what and how at the end of the first week.


On top of these mentors you will also be mentored a peer participant of your choice who will follow you throughout the whole block, and with whom you meet also at least twice. For this block we would like you to experiment with the mentoring format, and to contribute to our Toolkit for Mentoring, by adding alternative formats for mentoring through practice, movement, double self-interviews, through intermediary pets, objects or cooking sessions, … Whatever you think might get the juices flowing. 



Throughout the block each participant also develops an interview practice, in 3 sessions, based on questions that appeared in their own cases. The three stages of the interview throughout the block can take on different forms: through language, audio or image, addressing one person at the the time, or conducting (small) group interviews. Written or spoken or walked. In the end the three stages of the interview will serve as a starting point for the sessions during End Week in PAF.

Bureau d'Espoir - Elle SELF-INTERVIEW Elke – Elle

1 September-31 December 2015 / Abbeye de Forest

Elke (a.pass researcher): Elle, with the new project ‘Mobile MNSTRY’ you again tackle some of the issues you have been dealing with in your extended project Bureau d’Espoir already for some years: the recuperation and embrace of practices and terms that have been categorized, marginalized and recuperated by capital strategies. For example: you worked on the mobilization of the concept of ‘anorexia’ in the Hunger and Anorexic practices as tools for rethinking our relation to the consumption of food, and our own place in the ‘food chain’ of capitalism. You worked in ‘Battery’ on the embrace of circumstances that are considered detrimental to the ‘healthy’ development of the individual: 21 days of imprisonment, hunger and lack of private space as a spiritual-aesthetic machine for the production of hope and change. Now you propose the Mobile Monastery: a practice that is based on rethinking the monastic rule, the disciplining and deep experience of the everyday, introducing ‘poverty’ and social service (karma yoga) into the practice. Your proposals all seem to verge on the extreme, uncomfortable, and frankly, possibly moralistic. How do you plan to make this collective practice seem inviting to collaborators.

Vladimir Miller Settlement VIII

14 September-2 October 2015 / a.pass studio


Settlement is a space that tries very hard not to settle. Its instability naturally works against the establishing of clear boundaries between „your space“ and „my space“, what hopefully follows from that is that it is very difficult to establish boundaries between „your work“ and "my work". I believe that practice is bound by space, and if space gets shaky, unstable, shareable, so does the practice.

Bureau d'Espoir / Elle Mobile MNSTRY

9-22 November 2015 / Abbeye of Forest

The Mobile MNSTRY (Monastery, Ministery, Monster-y) is a collective location project, organised in and around the previous Abbeye of Forest. The MNSTRY will install a temporary (monastic) community that lives and works within a limited area, following a shared time score and accepting the rule of poverty for the duration of the workshop. During this time all activities of the MNSTRY will be organised within the public contexts of Forest, and developed as an open invitation to the neighbourhood and passers-by. During the workshop the time score of the MNSTRY will bit by bit start to change: the original 'monastic' score will be taken over by the members of the community, who will start to decide on what there is to be done, what we will spend our shared time on, and what is it that is needed today, here, and for whom.
