Equal Access Report #2: Kankerscreening. Alles willen weten om alles te willen genezen, of beter van niet?

Een op de acht vrouwen krijgt borstkanker. Screening is één manier om kanker zo vroeg mogelijk op te sporen. Maar is dat voldoende? En leidt het echt tot minder sterfte? In deze neerslag van de tweede workshop van de leerstoel Equal Access to Health and Medical Care, deelt Geerdt Magiels zijn bedenkingen bij de lezingen van Jan Willem Coebergh over bevolkingsonderzoek en van Jacques de Grève over systematische genetische screening.

Equal Access Report #1: Vaccinatie. Controverse in verleden, heden en toekomst

'De poging van de mens om zich te beschermen tegen infectieziekten kent een lange geschiedenis. De eerste verhalen over preventieve bescherming tegen de pokken door inoculatie deden drieduizend jaar geleden in India en China al de ronde.' aldus begint Geerdt Magiels het eerste Crosstalks rapport in het kader van de leerstoel Equal Access to Health and Medical Care.

Look Who's Crosstalking Now

New Europeans

New Europeans is a test zone for everyday life in Europe.



The contributors create alternative scenarios for the future of the continent, about how to live together and discovering shared values.  A Europe of experience and exchange.

From the beginning of 2016 and during the first half of the year a group of 12 young Europeans will co-create a test zone in Amsterdam with artistic interventions and a cultural programme. The zone is right at The Wall that surrounds the area where the official EU-meetings are taking place.

New Europeans will continue online, with room for input of the audience as well as stories from elsewhere in Europe.


An evening on photography



Through presentations, interviews and current debates, 'De Donkere Kamer' zooms in on photography in 2016. The focus is not on a single aspect of photography, but on many. Young and old masters; domestic and international; new shots and famous work. The spectrum is wide, the image comprehensible and the visual pleasure great. 'De Donkere Kamer' aims to offer a view of this world through custom and unconventional emphases as well as proven concepts. It also offers a unique opportunity to new talent as three young creative photographers have been offered the chance to present a new project as part of the 'Pitch your photo project' initiative. A public vote will determine the distribution of the entrance fee amongst the three projects.

Participating photographers: Noémie Goudal, Bert Danckaert, Arno Roncada and Tine Guns

The evening is hosted by Anna Luyten, Edie Peters and Stijn Meuris

June 23 2016 - Bozar, Ravensteinstraat 23, 1000 Brussel - Hall Terarken 2 & 3 - 20u. Tickets cost 8 EUR and are available on - -

Also in the context of the Summer of Photography, Crosstalks organizes a debate on 'Public spaces as social glue', June 16, 2016. For more info click here.

“Today we no longer have the right to pretend that we command a unique position from which we can view the truth about the world. We must learn not to judge different areas of knowledge, culture, or art, but to combine them and to establish new ways of coexistence with those who enable us to meet the unique demands of our time.”

Ilya Prigogine & Isabelle Stengers,
Man’s New Dialogue With Nature,1979
