Enter Through The Void, Exit Through The Gift Shop is a brand new arts festival at CAMPO victoria and Kunsthal Ghent. Next to showcasing international artists that blur the boundaries between performance and visual art, the programme aims to reflect on the ecology of a contemporary arts festival by applying the circle of sustainability and by showing the invisible layers of presentation moments.
For three days a temporary exhibition layer of art installations and beds are placed in Kunsthal Gent. This reproductive zone of the arts festival Enter Through The Void, Exit Through The Gift Shop is installed to provide an accommodation for the performance artists that show their work at CAMPO victoria during the arts festival.
Each day this zone of care is complemented by daily talks hosted by Engagement arts, Caveat & Curators Anonymous.
