Open Call: Poster project

De Blinkerd

De Blinkerd is een redactie- en curatorgenootschap voor transdisciplinair en beeldend kunstonderzoek en -praktijk. In de loop van 2020-2021 werkte De Blinkerd samen met een groot aantal verschillende kunstenaars. Om het nieuwe jaar in te luiden, wil De Blinkerd graag nieuwe makers uitnodigen voor één van hun volgende projecten. Voor De Blinkerd Editions #10 organiseren ze een open call voor affiches.


De inhoud van de poster is volledig vrij. Het productieproces zal in nauwe samenwerking met De Blinkerd verlopen. Dit betekent dat de inzending voor de call niet het eindproduct hoeft te zijn (voor minstens 80%).
