KONT magazine is an annual bilingual (NL/EN) publication promoting cross-disciplinary creations by makers from the surroundings of Eindhoven. KONT, initiated by artist, writer and curator Griet Menschaert, looks beyond individual expression to reveal the unexpected potential of collaborative work.
For KONT, participating artists are encouraged to step beyond their own borders. The magazine’s name stands for „what you normally don’t see“, as well as „contact“ and „content“.
I appreciate being part of this young initiative, as a co-curator of the second issue (published in September 2018), by finding makers, forming teams, facilitating their creative process and strengthening the magazine’s profile as a network. Within this framework, we regularly organise informal meetings for makers, curators, creatives and anyone who wants to get in contact with them: Slow Portfolio Datings.
