After a presentation of all projects, we will present the final publication with texts by Eva Pot. On request of the residents, she entered into discussions with them over the past few months and wrote an extensive report.

About De Koer:

De Koer
is a creation and meeting place in the middle of the Brugse Poort in Ghent. De Koer is working on a collectively supported redevelopment of 'de Meibloem', a 2000 square metre historical site, as a dynamic playing field for social and artistic projects and initiatives. De Koer organizes a.o. a collective building process, community oven, a context-aware residency programme, idiosyncratic film and music programming, collective actions and a capricious café run by volunteers.

Residency programme:
De Koer makes time and space to shape its site from its current state in an inquisitive way. Is it possible to think and experiment with the socio-political meaning of a place like the Koer from the perspective of art? With the residency programme De Koer wants to experiment with the changing status and appearance of art practices. Following an open call, a jury selects 5 projects in which artists develop new work in relation to the historical, social and/or architectural significance of the place. The imagination is stimulated, the field is open, the game can be played.
