This Friday, our journal Kunstlicht is collaborating with Quartair in The Hague on an evening titled Anarchists, Squatters, Punks & …Yuppies? Artists’ Initiatives in the Netherlands, from the 1980s to the Present.

The event merges three causes to celebrate: the launch of the two latest issues of Kunstlicht, which consider the means by which artists subvert and demystify power structures; the launch of an online publication series with Platform BK that will feature articles that delve into the history of artist-run spaces in the Netherlands from the 1980s/90s (written by VU MA students in the context of last year’s contemporary art seminar by Angela Batholomew); and the 25th anniversary of Quartair, an artists’ initiative that has itself been subverting conventions since 1992.
