No artist or curator starts at MOMA. Most cultural activities sprout in garages, flats, display cases or other available residual spaces... This phenomenon occurs all over the world and the initiators of these exhibition spaces possess a boundless imagination and explore the limits of what is possible. Be it in a freezer compartment or on a cat scratching post, no space proves too "impossible" to be declared an art space!

Lichtekooi is a non-profit art space, located in the former garage of a terrace house. The space was founded in 2021 by Nadia Bijl and Pepa De Maesschalck. Lichtekooi aims to develop a varied programme of solo and thematic exhibitions, performances and shows, lectures and artist talks, all based on an open dialogue. The term lichtekooi is an old Dutch word for a girl of easy virtue. Lichtekooi aims to be a good “hostess” for its audience and a “girl of easy virtue” for artists.
