KW Institute for Contemporary Art Annual program 2017

October 15, 2016 by Laura Gomez

KW Institute for Contemporary Art is delighted to announce its future program as part of a larger institutional restructuring process under the new directorship of Krist Gruijthuijsen.

After 25 years, KW continues building upon its successes as a lively platform for progressive art practices, and will affirm its position as a local meeting place specialized in experimental discursive programming. The fundamental mission of the new artistic program is that it is artist-driven, meaning that every part of the program is filtered through the lens of the artistic vision. The 2017 program unfolds in several seasons with various temporalities in which on-going investigations into singular art practices or thematics form the basis for corresponding commissions and exhibitions.
