Documentary and conversation

Pay what you can

KONT magazine presents:
Staying with The Tides

KONT, the annual magazine and at the same time nomadic, artistic vehicle based in Eindhoven (founded by the Belgian artist Griet Menschaert) will be showing its documentary 'Staying With The Tides/Bij de getijden blijven' at Kunsthal Gent. The title of the documentary is a reference to Donna Haraway's famous book 'Staying With The Trouble'.

The tides are fluid, so is KONT. In 2021, KONT exists for 5 years. With this documentary, KONT would like to mark what its movement has been striving for all this time. It also questions how to continue from this point. Therefore, there will be a conversation after the documentary on what KONT is, was and can become, together with people who have been involved over the years and guests.

The documentary is a realization of documentary film maker, designer and musician Floor Hofman.

The documentary features Koosje Hamerslag (Pseud.), Griet Menschaert, Annegret Bönemann, Lars Leeuw, Casper Fitzhue, Charles Esche, Wessel Verrijt and Simón Andrés Soto Ochoa.
