Kunstwerkkunst (Engl. ‘artworkart’), or KWK, is a new concept that consists of a DIY gallery/ co-working space/workshop and a bar. Both spaces can be up and running simultaneous (but not always).
KWK is looking to offer artists an alternative to exclusive high-profile galleries. Additionally also giving the artists the opportunity to connect to an audience, and vice-versa.
Conveniently, KWK sits next to bar chopinchopin on the animated Beverhoutplein in Ghent. This market square, next to Sint-Jacobs, is most known for the flea market which normally takes place every Friday, Saturday, and Sunday.
During the day, from Monday to Wednesday, KWK will be open as a basic coworking space/workshop. Whereas at night, it may function as a gallery/art event space.
From Thursday to Sunday, the chopinchopin bar will be open. Meanwhile, the KWK functions as a gallery and workshop during the day and becomes part of the bar at night.
