Platform BK

Platform Beeldende Kunst (BK) is an organisation that researches the role of art in society and takes action for a better art policy. They represent artists, curators, designers, critics and other cultural producers.

Founded in 2012, the platform exists for everyone who is committed to the visual arts in the Netherlands. Together with their members, Platform BK forms an active think tank: we take action for a better art policy and conduct research into the role of art in society.

They engage in dialogue with interest groups and politicians, by conducting research into government and municipal policy, committing to honest fee for artists, publishing critical essays on current affairs in art, organizing debates, workshops or film evenings, always free of charge for our members. They do this from the conviction that self-organization and solidarity are necessary for a better art climate and a stronger position for everyone working in the art sector.
