After a successful first edition in 2018, the arts festival PLAY Kortrijk will now continue as a triennial for contemporary art. 

The second edition is titled Paradise Kortrijk and will take place from 26 June to 24 October 2021. This international arts project was inspired by our Zeitgeist and our never-ending dreams of paradise. We all dream of a carefree life in paradise, but how do we achieve this? What does ‘paradise’ mean to each of us? How can we construct a better society?

This projected is curated by Patrick Ronse (Be-Part, Platform for contemporary art) and Hilde Teerlinck (Han Nefkens Foundation).
