This week on view at the The Letters Project: a  postcard from ART-chitect Johan Van Geluwe (1929-2020) to invite his fellow artist Robert Clicque (°1945) to a mystery performance of the Antwerp-based architect and artist Luc Deleu (°1944) in the premises of the Flemish Architects Association in Ghent on the 11th of January 1972. Drop by and find out what they were up to!

The Letters Project

In 2022-2023, KIOSK together with the research group Ghent, playing field of the visual arts (1957-1987), will focus on letters from or to people from Ghent, or concerning the Ghent art scene. The letters are selected for their content, but also for their form.

For a whole year, the group will present a different letter every week in KIOSK, and will highlight its context or the questions it raises. During these presentations, the letter (or a facsimile) will be shown, possibly with other artefacts that are mentioned or that can clarify its meaning.

Ghent, playing field of the visual arts (1957-1987) consists of Naninga Lens, Sofie Frederix, Wouter De Vleeschouwer, Koen Brams and Godart Bakkers. For The Letters Project the group is reinforced by Simon Delobel and some guests.
