Croxhapox (BE)

'Schuivende Grond'

The development programme of Kunsthal Gent supports 6 artists, collectives or small organisations per year in their artistic development. The first participant is croxhapox (1990), a contemporary experimental art centre in Ghent. Since 2018 croxhapox is being reinvented by a new artistic team consisting of 5 artists (Ann De Keersmaecker, Samira El Khadraoui, Stijn Van Dorpe, Maarten Van Luchene en Anyuta Wiazemsky Snauwaert). Since then, collaborations with other organisations and presentations outside the art space became the core of their programme.

During their residency period at Kunsthal Gent, the new artistic team of croxhapox explored the parameters of their future approach. The presentations during the opening weekend can be seen as representations for how croxhapox, as a nomadic artists’ initiative, seeks to investigate new spaces and means of presentation in the future. During the opening weekend, croxhapox will be present on the first floor of the wooden structure in Kunsthal Gent via documents and traces. The complete programme of activities by croxhapox during the opening weekend can also be found there.
