Manual 2.0

Een nieuwe editie van Kunsthal Gent' Manual

De Manual van Kunsthal Gent legt uit waar de organisatie uit bestaat, hoe ze is opgericht, voor wie ze is bedoeld, hoe ze kan worden gebruikt en wat ze kan bieden. Het is zowel voor publiek bestemd, als voor de medewerkers en betrokken kunstenaars. De Manual bestaat uit citaten uit de visietekst van Kunsthal Gent, uit persoonlijke notities en teamvergaderingen, en citaten van sprekers die werden uitgenodigd binnen het najaarsprogramma van 2018. Deze nieuwe editie van de manual is aangevuld met nieuwe teksten en citaten uit de eerste twee jaar van de werking van Kunsthal Gent. Met een reflectie op het specifieke karakter ven de Endless Exhibition en een focus op een "code of conduct".
