Postcard Size Artworks
Renowned artists and designers create postcard-size artworks exclusively for the Post Modern Collection, resulting in a growing collection of collector’s items.
Post Modern Collection: “Artists tend to develop large, thus pricier works. We ask them to tell their story on a smaller scale, getting a collection of handmade, unique, affordable artworks by contemporary makers. The compact measurements of the postcard challenge the artists to think and work in a different way. This often points the artists in a new direction in their work. New experiments, horizons, territories.”
“We work together with artists as well as designers and we present them in both the art world and in the design context. Post Modern acts as a springboard for these makers. We broaden the network of the participants as much as possible. New opportunities, connections and collaborations are created. With the revenues of the Post Modern sales, artists can invest in their general artistic development.”
“Post Modern is not a gallery but a traveling exhibition. The presentation of Post Modern triggers the public because of its dynamics. You can see totally different narratives, techniques, and materials. People get a good sense of what goes on in the (applied) arts. Plus: art lovers with a smaller budget can start their own art collection.”
