slash art

is an initiative by a group of local art students, which aims to fuel the debate around the recent draconian cuts to the arts & culture funding in the netherlands

their latest project involves the large official collective billboards which are used here during local and national elections, they are subject to strict rules and provide fixed space for all of the contending political parties to state their case, ‘slash art’ has opened a free-for-all competition inviting the general public to customise (or vandalise) them in their own way… nice, why not have a go? democracy is a privilege we need to cherish
