Kunsthal Gent is an international platform for the presentation and development of fine arts.
Kunsthal Gent creates a strong artistic and professional context in which to experiment with new ways of developing and presenting art. The meeting and collaboration of a whole diversity of artistic and public participants serves as the driving force for a hybrid programme in which different identities respond to each other and the spatial context.
"The new type of art institute cannot merely be an art museum as it has been until now, but no museum at all. The new type will be more like a power station, a producer of new energy.”
Alexander Dorner, The Way Beyond ‘Art’: The Work of Herbert Bayer, ReInk Books, 2017 (1947), p.116.
