27 MAY - 30 JUN 2020

In recent weeks, over fifty international artists have come together in an initiative entitled 2020Solidarity by Between Bridges project, aimed at helping cultural and music venues, community projects, and other independent spaces around the world that are existentially threatened by the current crisis. The artists designed one special edition poster each, offered on different crowdfunding sites as a reward for donations. In response to this campaign, we have initiated a Tokyo collective of 9 independent art spaces and publishers.

The income from the sale of these posters will be donated to the participating spaces in Japan respectively to use as they see necessary for their respective organisations, artists, and communities, in response to the threats created by the current crisis. Our collective response to this international initiative will hopefully be the first step in developing longer-term collaborations and support locally across our institutions.

You can purchase one (or more!) of a selection of these 2020Solidarity special edition posters through our webshop.

Each poster will be offered in exchange for a 6,000 JPY contribution and is size A2 (59.4 x 42 cm / 23.4 x 16.5 in). They are produced in an unlimited edition, but only available until 30 June 2020. Distribution begins after postal services have returned to normal when we receive the posters shipped from Germany.

Between Bridges has organised and printed these posters for the collective of 9 art spaces and publishers in Japan free of charge, so that we can use the proceeds to support our organizations as necessary to survive these challenging times.

With thanks to Wolfgang Tillmans, the artists, and Between Bridges.
