P/////AKT is a non-profit exhibition space for contemporary art that organizes and facilitates large scale solo presentations through which the audience gets the opportunity to gain insight in the thinking space of the artists. Where our current society has deemed the principle of direct benefit as its most important value, P/////AKT sees the function of visual art in its ability to conceive a different outlook on contemporary thinking. This specific ability benefits from independence and room for innovation.
P/////AKT provides a platform for exceptional and developing artistic talents, who distinguish themselves through their unique and authentic language and who are capable of giving a different view on the current way of thinking. These artists are stimulated to work out new developments and are given the opportunity to present their work to a relevant audience. Furthermore, P/////AKT always asks the artists to produce new work that relates to the specific nature and dimensions of the given space; in other words to present their own mental space as an overall presentation within the given context.
Early discovery and presentation of talented artists who we think deserve an opportunity to profile themselves, is central to the programming. This is reflected in the spin-off of the program; many artists who exhibited at P/////AKT at an early stage in their career (for some this was their first solo presentation), have now found their way into the (inter)national circuit.
