POST draws inspiration from the notion of a world without borders that is central in the New Babylon project by Constant Nieuwenhuys (1920–2005). While working within a border area, POST would like to take this idea at heart and aim to break down the border between the Netherlands and Germany, artistically and metaphorically.
With the work and life of Constant in mind, it is clear how working and being in relation to other artists shaped his practice. Interactions, dialogues and a playful context that is open for experimentation can be crucial in the development of emerging and experienced artists. When placing this within an international context, or rather within a borderless context, POST believes that there is an intersection with several of Constant’s ideas without forcing a frame on the invited artists. POST aims to centralize the ideas of Constant in the working process of the artists and the methodology of the exhibition, instead of centralizing his ideas as a theoretical framework. In this way, they hope to do justice to the legacy of Constant.
