De Koer heet jullie welkom in Kunsthal Gent, waar we samen met de residenten terugblikken op het voorbije jaar. Na een voorstelling van alle projecten stellen we de afrondende publicatie voor met teksten van Eva Pot. Op vraag van de residenten ging ze de voorbije maanden met hen in gesprek en schreef hierover een uitvoerig verslag.

Over De Koer:
De Koer
is een creatie- en ontmoetingsplek in het midden van de Brugse Poort te Gent. De Koer werkt aan een collectief gedragen herontwikkeling van zaal de Meibloem, een historische site van 2000 vierkante meter, als beweeglijk speelveld voor sociale en artistieke projecten en initiatieven. Zo organiseert de Koer o.a. een collectief bouwproces, community oven, een contextbewuste residentiewerking, eigenzinnige film- en muziekprogrammatie, collectieve acties en een wispelturig café gerund door vrijwilligers.

Residentiewerking: De Koer maakt tijd en ruimte om vanuit de huidige staat haar site onderzoekend vorm te geven. Is het mogelijk om de sociaal-politieke betekenis van een plek als de Koer te denken en te experimenteren vanuit de kunst? Met de residentiewerking wil De Koer experimenteren met de veranderende status en verschijningsvorm van kunstpraktijken. Na een open oproep kiest een jury 5 projecten waarbinnen kunstenaars nieuw werk ontwikkelen in verhouding tot de historische, sociale en/of architecturale betekenis van de plek. De verbeelding wordt aangewakkerd, het veld ligt open, het spel kan gespeeld worden.
