With FINALLY, THINGS ARE HAPPENING Studio for Immediate Spaces is proud to present works of its 2021 graduates. Through experimental and material research into the meanings and possibilities of coming together, sharing knowledge, caring for another – be it humans or nature – all works unite under the ambition to create or critically reflect on spaces to facilitate a new sociability. Through various media, ranging from film, performance to sculpture and environment, the works manifest as signs and symbols of a new normal that has changed the way of living together in recent months, creating novel perceptions of space, imagining alternative rituals and practices.
For the past months Reneenee / Maison Descartes and Kristoffer Zeiner gave refuge to the Studio for Immediate Space in times of harsh social regulations. For FINALLY, THINGS ARE HAPPENING Reneenee / Maison Descartes will once again host the Studio to showcase the results of its graduates’ works, which to a large part were conceived and fostered in this magical place.

How to live together?


Hosted by the project space Reneenee, the vacant and somewhat abandoned space of the former Maison Descartes was occupied for new temporary shapings. This ground was used for both a collective project as well as for  four independent projects/works made by each of the makers.
Through constellations of dance, movement, sound, and images we would like to share the creative process we went through living and working inside of this architecture during the residency period. The program hosts four live performances which include:

The Tiniest Act by Tamir Eting, performed by Donald Fleming and Charles Pas ; a solo research-presentation by Fernanda Libman;  Giulia Or Not by Carolina Papetti performed by Catarina Paiva and Jessica Matheson and Ingeborg Meier Andersen will be performing her work in progress ’STELLAROSA' alongside collaborator, performer, and cellist Peter Scherrebeck Hansen.; as well as a series of audiovisual works developed by the same makers in collaboration with Adele Grégoire and Rafael Romero Peña.
Dates and Time Table:
4-6th of June

The performances are divided into two groups:

Group A: Carolina Papetti & Fernanda Libman

Group B: Tamir Eting & Ingeborg Meier Andersen

The two groups will perform parallel to each other.

First Round:

15:00 Program starts
16:00-18:00 Performances, both groups.
18:30 End

Second round:

18:30 Program starts
19:30-21:30: Performances, both groups.
22:30 Thank you for coming!

Freed From Desire

A foundational myth of neoliberal economics is that (privileged) humans can consume and prosper indefinitely, a repetition where each new generation is promised more success, comfort and material wealth than the last. Even as this paradigm unravels, it is experienced as déjà-vu. We seem welded to it, repeating patterns of thought and behaviour that appear increasingly absurd in the face of multiple global crises.

Works by Thom Driver, Cécile Tafanelli and Roman Tkachenko will be live streamed between the performances, from 12-17.00, Friday 5 – Sunday 7 March and Friday 12 – Sunday 14 March.
Friday 5 March, 15.00: ‘Together in Spirit’ by Liza Prins & Layla Durrani
Saturday 6 March, 12.00-17.00: ‘Dig’ by Kim Wawer
Sunday 7 March, 15.00: ‘Joe Nobody rises from the dead’ by Duncan Robertson
Saturday 13 March, 12.00-17.00: ‘Dig’ by Kim Wawer
Sunday 14 March, 15.00: ‘Joe Nobody rises from the dead’ by Duncan Robertson

(a household spirit)
it doesn’t sit, it doesn’t sink.

        It scatters. You
with the others discover your new tones;

        All wary -- yourself, the others expecting from you, or those watching

Reneenee welcomes you to the exhibition Hobgoblin, located in the former Maison Descartes. The entrance will be slightly different this time: the door will be open at Eerste Weteringdwarsstraat 107. There will be a sign at the entrance reading Reneenee.

Open Thurs–Sun 1500–1900, and by appointment.
