Studio Stadswaag is a co-creative process in which artists and (former) students of the Royal Academy of Fine Arts Antwerp, together and in dialogue with the neighborhood of the Stadswaag (a square located on the North of the Academy Campus) and its residents, examine what the stratification of the Stadswaag consists of today, what is in the balance, and how we can create harmonious connections and new realities through art in the public space.
How we can make public domain together, create the city together, ... and this in the long term.
We hope that this project can be a starting point for developing a sustainable dynamic on and around the Stadswaag square.
Initiated by Johan Pas, Nico Dockx and Maarten Desmet in collaboration with Wouter Bolangier and others.
A collaboration between the District of Antwerp, the Flemish Community, the Royal Academy of Fine Arts Antwerp, Stadsform vzw, and the University of Antwerp - Faculty of Design Sciences.
Within this project, an artistic integration will be realized commissioned by the City of Antwerp (District Antwerp) and the Flemish Community.
This project runs over 2022-2023-2024
