Graphic Design Museum Gent
Graphic Design Museum Gent is a place where Belgian graphic design is researched, discussed, documented, and exhibited. This temporary museum is a working space of Belgian Institute for Graphic Design (BINGO), which is researching the graphic history of Design Museum Gent, and Post Identity Project (PIP*), which is exploring what different new graphic identities the museum can adopt.
BINGO is an independent organisation functioning as a knowledge centre and presentation platform for graphic design in and from Belgium. They are currently working on developing an online platform for Belgian graphic design.
PIP* offers a programme for recent graphic design graduates of LUCA School of Arts and KASK & Conservatorium to rethink the (graphic) identity of Design Museum Gent. During the museum’s renovation, PIP* investigates which different (graphic) identities a museum can adopt today. This happens through experiments, self-initiated projects and in-house commissions. The members of PIP* rotate on a regular basis. 019 and Design Museum Gent provide the professional framework throughout the process.
