Carla Van Campenhout about the book by Hans Theys: "Thirty journalists, curators, feminists, historians, political scientists and artists who fully lived the sixties and seventies and who are still active today, talk candidly about the encounters, experiences, books, films, works of art, musicians, performances and exhibitions that have brought them together, touched and formed. It has become a book about the dream of freedom, with countless references to fascinating women artists, thinkers, architects, choreographers, writers, designers and makers of all kinds, easily traceable thanks to a fabulous index".

Opening: Sunday 11 September 2022, 3-6pm. The exhibition can then be visited daily between 17 September and 2 October, between 12 noon and 6 pm (free entry). Louis Pasteurlaan 2, 9000 Ghent.
