Using their own artistic practice as a starting point, the five artists reacted to the process they went through during the year, giving light to five unique perspectives.

About STRT Kit #3
STRT Kit is an initiative of Studio Start in collaboration with AIR Antwerpen, HART Magazine and Kunsthal Extra City.

For the duration of one year they worked in a collective studio and presentation space and met international curators, artists and organizers, participated in a project week in Jerusalem, as well as an individual interview with HART magazine and a collective exhibition at Kunsthal Extra City, curated by Övül Ö. Durmusoglu (21.10 — 12.11.2017).
