Lichtekooi Artspace is a space for contemporary art in Antwerp on the initiative of Nadia Bijl and Pepa De Maesschalck. It opened its doors in the spring of 2021.
Lichtekooi Artspace is a non-profit space, located in the former garage of a terrace house. 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.
