Framer Framed


Framer Framed is a space for contemporary art, visual culture and critical theory & practice. The organisation collaborates with international curators and artists, emerging as much as established, to create art exhibitions dealing with topics such as identity politics, notions of 'the other' and historiographical propositions. Alongside the exhibitions, an extensive public program is organised in order to shed different lights on the topics concerned. With this common space for dialogue, Framer Framed aims to show a plurality of voices in a globalized society.
