“I dare to dream that this gesture will make the political world stop and think about where all this is leading the arts, for whom, how and why.” #CulturalPolicyLab

It is with immense sadness that we learnt that Frie Leysen passed away today. The significance of Frie Leysen for the artistic sector, as for Kunstenfestivaldesarts, cannot be expressed in words. She has changed the cultural sector and has been an inspiring figure for colleagues, and for a next generation. It’s easy to say that the world of theater wouldn’t be the same today without her contribution, and it will not be the same without her.

Frie taught the value of risk: artworks must not simply be liked, or be compliant; but rather they must take risks, undermine securities, and sometimes make us feel uncomfortable in front of them. In doing this, she did not let herself be put on the defensive, but she defended the artists with passion. A gentle giant who did not mince words and dared to say what it is to be said.

Frie has developed and taught how to look at international creation, eschewing the risk of the exotic, and always respecting the singularity of the artist. She looked at artists as antennas, helping us to navigate the complexity of the world: “I want to see the world through the eyes of a hundred other people, and maybe I will understand something about it”

Frie believed in the political potentiality of artistic creation and institutions in bringing people together. She imagined the unimaginable and created Kunstenfestivaldesarts in 1994, bringing together the French-speaking and the Flemish sector in an international festival in Brussels. She became an example to us all, at home and abroad, by making the impossible possible, with her boundless energy, vitality and sharp presence.

Frie described herself as a hyphen: between artists who have the urgency to share their vision and an audience; a hyphen between artistic and geographical contexts; a hyphen within a city; a hyphen bringing people together. The metaphor she used reveals the humbleness of her spirit; but it also reveals the necessity of her presence. Frie, you will be missed.

Festival director and curator Frie Leysen died at the age of 70 She was the first director of art centre de Singel and founded the Art Festival doctor in Brussels. Our thoughts go to her family and friends. Kunstenpunt found another beautiful interview for Theaterstof this afternoon.

Just heard that Frie Leysen died. I was only thinking of her yesterday. She was and will remain a huge source of strength and inspiration for me and so many others in the scene. Fierce and joyful. Mischievous and sharp. Gonna raise a glass tonight.

Having heard about this great loss, the family of this individual is passing through pains, mourning the unexpected passing of their beloved.

This departure was confirmed through social media posts made by Twitter users who pour out tributes, and condolences to the family of the deceased.

We are still working on getting more details about the death, as a family statement on the death is yet to be released.
