019 — Museum Of Moving Practice
During the summer of 2017, 019 will occupy a wing of the Design museum Gent. 019 closes the doors on the current location (Dok-Noord) from May to September and moves the entire operation. The building on the outskirts of the town is literally sealed shut. It’s time for experimentation, an exercise. More specifically, an exercise in moving, because the building where 019 is temporarily housed, will get a different destination someday and our organisation will eventually have to move. For four months, 019 compiles its own programme that explores the artistic potential in and around the 18th-century style rooms at Hôtel de Coninck. Both indoors and in public spaces around the museum. So, Design museum Gent will have guests, but the host and guest roles are not that easily defined. The museum is occupied but by welcoming occupiers: 019 in turn invites different artists to create and present work. That way, a diverse collective contributes to the new temporary platform: 019 — Museum of Moving Practice.
Program underneath, more to be announced (soon).
