founded in 1991 by Ingrid De Coster and Frank Van Houtte
Verzameld Werk refuses to rely on well-tried methods and formules. It serves as a platform for processes and cross-fertilization. Ever since its opening, almost twenty years ago, it has been an open house, a place in the heart of the city of Ghent that has remained a treasured secret for lovers of meaningful objects. In addition to organizing regular exhibitions and selling a selection of special items such as jewels and books in the gallery, Verzameld Werk also rents out a number of guestrooms and occasionally organizes salons: informal dinners that serve as a context for an exchange of ideas, humorous thoughts, and positive energy in a cosy atmosphere.
Verzameld Werk was founded and is still run with great passion by Ingrid De Coster and Frank Van Houtte.
