Until 1 October, a collective of young artists will hold an exhibition in the tram depot in Merelbeke-Centre. The sheds have previously been the setting for a pop-up. Now Seraphine Verstraete and Maurice De Walsche are renaming the location Bar Bildung.
Bar Bildung is a bar and exhibition space. Visitors can enjoy a drink and two different exhibitions. The initiators were immediately inspired by the space. The old tram was even integrated into the expo. From September 24 to October 1, you can admire works by Mark Van Hoek, Loïs Pluymers, Boris Deben and Sarah Van der Vennet.
Alderman for culture Luc Van Huffel: “The tram set is a beautiful unused space in the heart of our municipality. We are happy to support these young artists/entrepreneurs.”
Alderman of the local economy Tim De Keukelaere: “With these kinds of initiatives, we show the potential of the tram depot. This fits within our issuance file for the pilots.”
