29 Jun 06 Oct 2024

From 29 June to 6 October, Be-Part and the City of Kortrijk present After Paradise. The successful triennials PLAY (2018) and Paradise (2021) will be followed this year by After Paradise, with contemporary art installations at 14 different locations in the city. Curators Patrick Ronse (Be-Part, Platform for contemporary art, Kortrijk - Waregem) and Hilde Teerlinck (Han Nefkens Foundation, Barcelona & curator Belgian Pavilion Venice Biennale 2022) invite some 20 (inter)national artists to build an art installation at various indoor and outdoor locations in the centre of Kortrijk.

Why After Paradise?

The theme of the third Triennial is 'After Paradise': 'What after 'paradise'? In contrast to the harmony and rich abundance found in paradise, After Paradise confronts us with resource shortages, social tensions and a highly polluted environment. While this sounds predominantly negative, After Paradise aims rather to tell a positive story. Taking responsibility and empowerment are central to this. This is reflected in the artistic interpretation, with a focus on works that challenge dialogue, reflection and action.
