Paradise Kortrijk 2021 is the successor to Play Kortrijk 2018, the interactive art event that transformed the city of Kortrijk three years ago into a playground of contemporary artworks at various indoor and outdoor locations in the city, and which was a real success with more than 175,000 visitors.
The second edition maintains the recipe for success - a dynamic and free urban exhibition with interactive works of art by an ambitious list of Belgian and international artists in various indoor and outdoor locations in the city of Kortrijk - and focuses on the utopian dream of paradise. The project draws inspiration from our zeitgeist and is a reaction to our current living environment, which sometimes seems miles away from a hopeful, positive and utopian environment.
Texture, museum of flax and textiles, is one of the indoor locations of Paradise Kortrijk 2021. In our museum you will find works by Viktor & Rolf, Klaas Rommelaere, Joris Van de Moortel, Sanam Khatibi and Berlinde De Bruyckere.
The outdoor locations are permanently accessible. Reservations must be made for the museum locations (Kortrijk 1302, Stables and Texture Museum). Schedule approximately 30 minutes for each museum location to visit and a 15 minute walk between these locations. The entire track is about 8 km.
