Poster project De Blinkerd

For De Blinkerd Editions #10 we organize an open call for a poster. The content of the poster is completely free, but be sure to check out De Blinkerd’s website and socials to get an idea of our approach and ‘look’.

De Blinkerd is an editorial and curatorial haven founded to create and promote transdisciplinary visual art research and practice. Over the course of 2020-2021 De Blinkerd collaborated with a variety of artists. To ring in the new year, we would like to invite new creators for one of our next projects.
