Since 1997, Kunst & Zwalm has been a biannual art route in the Zwalm area. Artists create in situ art works or perform interventions in the landscape and/or including local residents. 

For the edition of 2021, BOEM vzw invited croxhapox, the Ghent-based platform for contemporary arts. In turn, the artistic leaders of croxhapox, Samira El Khadraoui and Anyuta Wiazemsky Snauwaert, introduced Remi Verstraete as a co-curator. In 2022, croxhapox will bring ex situ art works, experiences, interventions and participatory trajectories back to Ghent. 

This year, the route is conceived as a full day experience, with around 8 kilometers of interactive, participatory and visual art works, providing sufficient resting points and catering options along the way. You can complete the course by walking or follow an alternative parcours for less mobile participants. If you prefer to explore the route at a faster pace, you’re also welcome by bike. Register for a day ticket (8 euro) now by clicking this link. During Kunst & Zwalm, students (5 euro) and ‘Uitpas’ users are welcome to buy tickets at a reduced rate at the register. Soon, we’ll release the evening programme with concerts and cosy dinners, for which additional tickets will become available.
