Assembly of practice #3: Whose institution?

After ‘What does it mean to own?’ and ‘Whose Artwork?’, a third Assembly of Practice brings us to the relationships between artists, arts organizations, and public

02/12/2022, 17 – 19h
Kunsthal, Gent


In an encounter with the practices of the different engaged institutions in the project (Kunsthal Gent, Jester, a.pass and BUDA) Emptor explores how ownership plays out within their functioning and affects who has access, what is shown and how we valorise art.

Reflections also situate themselves on site in dialogue with Grace Ndiritu on the development trajectory Ghent: how to live together? and in time by responding to what happened at Documenta #15 / ‘Lumbung 1’.

In an attempt to publish and perform the ongoing reflection we welcome the public for a shared moment:

16h30-17h30: Vijai Patchineelam book presentation in dialogue with with Adrijana Gvozdenović and Pia Louwerens
17h30-19h: food and discussions
19h: screening The Stranger of Collegno, Maïder Fortuné

Afterwards you’re invited to join us to Radiator, a group exhibition at 019 (Ghent) with Jubilee associate artists Clémentine Vaultier and Ciel Grommen & Maximiliaan Royakkers

Emptor’s events are free of charge and everybody is welcome
