Josefien Cornette

Jose­fien Cor­net­te is an artist-wri­ter. Jose­fien has a mul­ti­dis­ci­pli­na­ry prac­ti­ce with a back­ground in art his­to­ry, femi­nism, queer stu­dies and disa­bi­li­ty stu­dies. Jose­fien was edi­tor at rekto:verso, whe­re it co-ordi­na­ted the issue CRIP, col­la­bo­ra­ted with Enga­ge­ment Arts and today is buil­ding a grass­roots move­ment of crip artists in Bel­gi­um.

In 2023, Jose­fien relea­sed their first book entit­led  ‘A Hou­se That Hurts’, whe­re it wri­tes about disa­bi­li­ty, mourning and the loss of a loved one.
