  • Studiestukken (Study items), artproject of Karin Borghouts in collaboration with the Museum Morphology and the Sciencemuseum University Ghent in the Library of Visual Arts (Kunstbib), University Ghent (Boekentoren), Ghent, BE. October 2 - November 27, 2009.
    The library (Boekentoren) is one of European’s defining examples of modernist architecture, designed by the renowned architect Henri Van de Velde. Especially for the Library of Visual Arts Karin Borghouts made an exhibition with both photographs and real scientific study items. What happens when a scientific object moves into another context? She organized two meetings with the public and the students, the museum custodians and the artist/librarian. A description of the project in pdf is available on demand (Dutch).
