Kunsthal Gent wil experimenteren met nieuwe manieren van omgaan met kunstwerken en kunstenaars en ging daarvoor onder andere in het najaar van 2018 in gesprek met de Amerikaanse tentoonstellingsmaker Prem Krishnamurthy. Zijn radicale voorstel om alle tentoonstellingen permanent te maken, wordt in Kunsthal Gent op zijn haalbaarheid getest.

In de programmalijn Endless Exhibition worden curatoren en kunstenaars uitgenodigd om een toevoeging te ontwikkelen aan een tentoonstelling zonder einddatum. Nieuwe toevoegingen zorgen steeds voor druk op de bestaande situatie. Het gesprek over hoe het nieuwe zich tot het bestaande werk verhoudt, is daardoor steeds ook een gesprek met alle betrokken kunstenaars. Deze aanpak stelt de autonomie en de ‘onaanraakbaarheid’ van afzonderlijke, afgewerkte kunstwerken in vraag.

In Krishnamurthy’s eigen woorden uit een notitie van 1999: “[Principe] 5: terugkeer van het project — het project zou nooit klaar moeten zijn — het zou altijd moeten uitnodigen tot toevoegingen, heroverwegingen, opnieuw contextualiseren.”
