Laurence Rassel is head of the art institution ERG (école de recherche graphique, école superieure des arts) in Brussels. She is a cultural worker who can act as curator, teacher and organizer based in Brussels. She has been trained in the visual arts and in education.
From 2008 to 2015 she was the Director of Fundació Antoni Tàpies in Barcelona, and from 1997 to 2008 Laurence Rassel was member of Constant, a non-profit association and interdisciplinary arts-lab dealing with free software, copyright and (cyber)feminism.

As the director of an art institution, Laurence Rassel thinks and talks about the definition of such an institution and the role of an art school. In this art talk she’s talking about some of her inspirations; open source, feminism and institutional psychotherapy. A student from the student association is going to travel with her from Brussels to Basel, to enable a wider exchange and to open the discussion into more perspectives.
