etc | expanding the contemporary is an international think tank investigating the vast topic of fine art editions ( print, photography, film, video, multiple, artist book, performance art ) with a particular focus on contemporary art – our contemporary culture.
etc seeks to:
- provide space where academic studies, artist research and artistic production are actively fostered
- explore the complexities and possibilities connected to the medium of editions in fine art
- widen the scope of fine art editions as a practice in contemporary visual culture
etc was founded in 2011. Established as a non-profit organisation, all financial support and proceeds are directly re-incorporated to benefit etc’s core elements: research, artist residency, artist editions and the symposium series ON LOOKING.
