Établissement d’en face projects

Établissement d’en face projects is a centre offering a wide range of projects, ranging from solo exhibitions to screenings, conferences, performances, book presentations, etc. In this way, the aim of the Établissement is to expand the limits of the simple contemporary art exhibition and to reach a broad and diverse public. A working group consisting of people actively involved in the field of current visual arts, officially runs the Établissement. They are the visual artists Sven Augustijnen, Harald Thys, Michael Van den Abeele and Sophie Nys, the architect Jan Verheyden, NICC colleague Margot Vanheusden (who has worked for Établissement and for Argos), and Etienne Wynants, subeditor for the Witte Raaf art magazine. Emma Sidgwick takes care of the permanently manned office, reception and the secretarial duties. This type of collaboration encourages the clash of ideas and the exchange of suggestions and practices.
