In June 2011 State Secretary
Zijlstra announced a 200 million euro governmental cut on art and culture. As a
consequence, countless art institutions and other cultural venues will be
forced to close their doors from 2013 onwards. In recent months, cultural
advocates have responded to the government’s plans by organising and attending massive protests.Platform
collective of artists, critics, curators, cultural producers, designers, museum
and gallery employees and other parties, will visually and textually present an
overview of analyses and opinions on recent political developments in the
Netherlands with regard to the drastic changes.
