The user’s manual for Kunsthal Gent explains what the organisation is made of, how it is set up, whom it is for, how it can be used and what it can offer. It is made for the users (this includes the public) as well as for the staff and the artists. This manual consists of quotes, gathered from our mission statement, personal notes and team meetings, and quotes from the speakers that were invited in Kunsthal Gent’s 2018 fall programme.
