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.
