KAOS, a Space for Art

About KAOS

KAOS develops art projects with artists who may or may not be psychologically vulnerable and has an Artists in residency programme in psychiatry. It brings art and psychiatry together and tells something about the perception of this.
Where historically a distinction arose between so-called outsider and insider art, KAOS resolutely chooses to ignore this distinction in the development of their projects. The starting point is the quality of the work in combination with the trajectory and the themes of the artists they work with.
As in the arts field, we notice that the boundaries between psychiatry and non-psychiatry are becoming more fluid. However, there are still many prejudices about people who suffer from mental vulnerability and through our projects KAOS wants to challenge these and contribute to a process of destigmatisation.
