Platform BK mobilizes the art sector in response to current developments in the visual arts. We organise actions, debates and meetings. Sometimes we give a presentation at the activities of others, or we participate in the public. Our members can also organise activities, such as a reading group on philosophy, a film evening or a working group on self-organisation.
