TRACK is an art experience taking place in the public and semi-public space of Ghent. It offers enriching and unexpected encounters with the city, its history and its inhabitants, stimulating reflection on urban realities and, in a wider sense, the contemporary human condition. Forty-one international artists were invited to conceive new artworks strongly rooted in the urban fabric of Ghent, but linking the local context with issues of global significance. Participants include multi-media artist John Bock, performance artist and choreographer Alexandra Bachzetsis, painter Erik van Lieshout, and visual artist Mircea Cantor, among many others
