Platform BK exists for everyone who is committed to the visual arts in the Netherlands. We represent artists, curators, designers, critics and others who work in the art sector or have a warm heart for it. Together with our members, we form an active think tank: we take action for a better art policy and conduct research into the role of art in society.

We do this by engaging in dialogue with interest groups and politicians, by conducting research into government and municipal policy, by committing ourselves to an honest fee for artists, by publishing critical essays on current affairs in art, or by organizing debates, workshops or film evenings, always free of charge for our members. We 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.
