de Koer, Brugse Poort
Why are artists swapping their studios for a spot in the city? What will be the role of participants? Is there an explicit social engagement in their artistic practices? And what is the actual artwork, anyway? In Tot in de stad! (‘See you in the city!’) - part of the STADSATELIER project - Vooruit, together with four partners from Ghent, focuses on the artistic practices of artists working in the city of Ghent.
We will take a look at artistic practices that intervene and/or are anchored in the social fabric of a neighbourhood or city. Work in progress is shown, after which there is always an opportunity for discussion about the work and related topics. This discussion may take the form of a conversation, a debate, a lecture,... Every edition takes place at the location of one of our partners.
