The Barricade was an event to mark the presentation of Non-Centered Fold / American Wrestling, a book with drawings by Emmanuel Depoorter and a text by Erwin Wittewrongel, published by the University of Ghent.
The location of the happening was an unused student restaurant called The Barricade. We built six wooden volumes, one of which served as the display for the book. Together with befriended artists, musicians, theorists and university staff we turned the other volumes into a lectur room/ cinema, a bar, a stage ande two exhibition spaces.
