"Noordkaap Foundation is an artist-collective network organization that aims to make a critical contribution to urban renewal projects by initiating multidiscipline art-projects in public space and in empty buildings. From their temporarily headquarter, they aim to make the notion of city development and contemporary artistic strategies in public space accessible to a bigger public. The project-space is a platform for research, intervention and exchange and Noordkaap organizes exhibitions, as well as open brainstorm meetings, lectures, videoscreenings and communical activities to get the people actively involved in the restructuring of their own street."

Call for submissions
Noordkaap is open to project-proposals by guest curators, artists, designers and thinkers that test and question the urban landscape by the use of interview, cover stories, poster art, swopactions, performances, research, etc. They kindly invite you to become part of our growing international network by using our projectspace as a platform to test and present your ideas.

nowHere, a space where a spot becomes a place.
15 march - 25 may, 2008

nowHere, is a cabinet which invokes a dialogue on re-appropriation of the private and public domain. Through personal tags and geographies (books, movies, music, websites, drawings, mappings, photocopies, art works, ... ) it reads as a 'certain' historical relation between human, space and technology.

bolwerK considers the constructed in-between space of architect C.Kieckens, within the art space, Z33, not as a sub-art space with a curatorial reading; a cabinet as 'museum' but as a space with a personal narrative and a social meaning embedded in a neighborhood. The active use of the space for living, eating, working, sleeping implies that the cabinet is more a 'room of collection', in a live, real-time situation.

During PLACE@SPACE Marthe Van Dessel will post live from Z33, as a guest contributor on Free Soil, to connect, publish and share her discourse
with the virtual open public resources of the net.

The the conceptualization of the space as 'ongoing', work-in-progress externalizes the precarity of information, issues of copyright, authorship, knowledge production and hierarchical information networks.
