Summer residency

 

Kunstenfestival PLAN B, an annual art festival in the remote village of Bekegem, has been given a summer residency at Gouvernement. Though playfulness is key to the festival’s practice, the organisers are not afraid of challenges or responses to more serious matters. This time they question the relationship of art in an urban and rural setting. PLAN B conducts two actions: one in Bekegem (September 1 & 2) and one in Ghent (September 20 – 23). Their in-situ created, contemporary art bubble allows contextual influences, resulting in an adapted or radically different art work.

 

As PLAN B will also take place at Gouvernement for the very first time, artists can already discover, develop, create and experiment with multiple ways of showcasing and displaying their art works during the summer.

 

Gouvernement offers the festival and invited artists to make use of its broad range of materials and knowledge as well as its network, being the supportive multidisciplinary platform it is known for. Be it musical, theatrical, performative or visual art, PLAN B’s artistic epicentre will capture the whole building for two consecutive months. The result? Instead of a public agenda, Gouvernement generates a warm and open-minded context for various young and promising artists and ditto organisers.
