Dear visitor,

Werkstation was a participatory and accumulative exhibition in Room XII at Sint-Lucas Visual Arts Ghent where we exhibited the posters of De Filmavonden.

Within the idea of ​​a participatory exhibition, visitors were invited to reconstruct the posters of De Filmavonden within simple design rules. During one week every poster was conceived as a game where the rules of the game referred to the conceptual limitations under which the original poster was designed. Werkstation was conceived as a ‘life’ and ‘performative’ event where visitors could come drawing and guests were invited for specific actions and rule based performances. By involving other people involved in this game we both investigated as challenged our collaboration.

Warm greetings,
Cox & Grusenmeyer
