Who we are

Stichting plan B is the institutional frame

We are a international group of interdisciplinary artists based in Amsterdam, who are brought together by our interest in artistic creation with a profound reflection on the interaction of different languages and disciplines.     Foundation plan B is the institutional frame of an artistic platform that aims to open new artistic spaces where creation is intimate related with research and education. 

Objectives

  • To generate new projects within a interdisciplinary dialogue frame.
  • To promote and organize activities for reflection and study, both related to the productions of the Foundation and independently from them: round tables, blogs, conferences, workshops, documentaries, talks, master classes, publications, etc.
  • To find alternative spaces for our projects to access a broader and unusual audience.
  • To open non conventional communication routes such as websites, after concerts, talks, writings, etc, for the artistic process not to end merely in performances.
  • To open spaces for cooperative production in between different countries, with a thorough dialogue that breaks away from stereotypes about nationalities.

Exchange

Set up in Amsterdam by an international pool of artists, Stichting plan B aims at facilitating the avant-garde cultural exchange through organizing new projects and promoting existing work with little or no exposure.

Interdiscipline

The starting point for the Foundation is a multiple platform of artists with an interest in collaborative work and a wish to loosen artistic borders. We are interested in comprehensive proposals where music, theatrical elements, audiovisual ones, etc, can coexist. We are looking for the richness of a discussion where all disciplines, understood as languages, can exchange procedures and points of view. We propose a space to think each of these languages in terms of articulation and discourse, beyond mere just a position.

The work of art as the culmination of a process

Stichting plan B proposes an exchange that occurs not only in the exhibition of works of art but also in discussing the work before and after. The finished piece is the formalized instance of a creative process and it is always an attempt at answering broader questions. The aesthetic discussion is a substantial element for the exchange amongst artists. Conceptualizing the experiences of the creative process enriches the work and opens new possibilities for the future.

Social projection

Stichting plan B is looking to articulate collaborations s with other institutions, such as universities, foundations, festivals, production houses, artistic groups and companies, theaters, galeries, etc. Working together can boost our capacites to find human and infrastructural resources, to produce projects, to access spaces and  to obtain funding. The Foundation aims at collaborating with educational institutions that have an interest in the theoric-conceptual discussions, ensembles or companies interested in producing performances, etc.
