SPIN is long-term resident of and structurally supported by Kunstencentrum BUDA, Kortrijk (BE) since 2013.

SPIN is Brussels-based.

SPIN is artists Hans Bryssinck, Diederik Peeters, Kate McIntosh, administration key-master Laura Deschepper - and the many collaborators they work with.

SPIN is a collaboration of artists and art-workers to support the artistic trajectory as a whole and encourage collective reflection around the role of art and the artists in society.

SPIN is self-organized; the artists and art-workers are together responsible for all the aspects of the organization.

SPIN is based on collective autonomy; solidarity that strengthens the individual autonomy through the sharing of time, support, experience, network, content dialogue and reflection.

SPIN is a playground.

SPIN is an open and diverse ecology of connections and collaborations amongst artists, organizations, institutions and audiences.

SPIN is a way to transcend the project-based reality and develop a long-term perspective for artistic practice.

SPIN is a mess.

SPIN is a mobile entity that is constantly reinvented and reconstructed as we move along.

SPIN is an experiment in new models of collaboration, reflection and production.

SPIN is a critically-positive alternative - a compact, sustainable and flexible model in the context of an arts field and society that is finding itself in a fundamental transition.
