is an annual NL/EN publication initiative of artist and writer Griet Menschaert, a slow magazine, a paper platform boosting collaborative cross-disciplinary creations by unique makers in the surroundings of Eindhoven, subtly reflecting on the current status quo.
KONT also hosts informal gatherings for makers, curators and anyone interested in meeting and working with them, so called Slow Portfolio Dates. Subscribe to our newsletter (scroll down) to stay informed. KONT is published by the non-profit organization Stichting Opia 55. Every issue is created together with a new graphic designer and new co-curators.
We are nominated for the EINDHOVEN CULTUURPRIJS: Vote on www.eindhovencultuurprijs.nl
