NICC Membership

NICC is a non-profit artists initiative run by and for artists, it is founded by professional visual artists in order to advocate their rights. Our aim is to set up a qualitative social framework within which the autonomous artistic practice can develop professionally.

NICC functions as a mediator between the artists and the government, art organizations, and other actors in the cultural field. In addition to a program of social actions, reflection, and research, the NICC presents an artistic program of lectures, exhibitions, symposiums, and presentations on contemporary professional practice.

Iedereen wie ooit al eens iets uitgegeven heeft, heeft ongetwijfeld thuis… dozen staan. Dozen met boeken, publicaties, edities die eigenlijk heel dierbaar zijn. Maar je raakt ze niet meer kwijt. Ze zijn dan misschien ook net iets te oud of je eigen parcours is al zo geëvolueerd dat je die publicatie meer als archiefmateriaal ziet. Dan hebben ze geen koopwaarde meer. En toch zijn ze best kostbaar, dat is niet iets wat je kan of wil weggooien. Herkenbaar? Wel, goed nieuws: je bent niet alleen. 


Op 3 december tussen 18 en 21u ben je welkom in het nieuwe kantoor van NICC (gedeeld met HART-magazine en KunstWerkt). Breng je doos met kostbaarheden mee en ruil met andere kunstenaars hun dierbare publicaties. Duurzaam, goedkoop, je raakt je publicaties alsnog kwijt en je krijgt er iets heel leuks voor in return. 


Ah, en dat vindt plaats tijdens de Antwerp Art Nocturne, bekijk de volledige programma hier: 






Anyone who has ever self-published something will undoubtedly have… boxes at home. Boxes of books, publications, art editions that are actually very precious. But you can’t sell them anymore. Maybe those are just a bit too old (or maybe your career has evolved to such an extent that you see that publication more as archival material). So they no longer have any purchase value. And yet they are quite dear to you, its not something you can or want to throw away. Recognizable situation? Well, good news: you're not alone.


On December 3rd between 6 and 9 pm you are welcome at the new NICC office (shared with HART magazine and KunstWerkt): bring your precious box and exchange with other artists who also have some precious unsellable publications. Sustainable, cheap, you do something with your publications after all and, moreover, you get something really nice in return.


Ah, and this will take place during Antwerp Art Nocturne, view the full program here:
