A growing collection of small masterpieces, created by emerging and established artists. These collector’s items have been made exclusively for the Post Modern Collection.
Artists tend to create large, thus pricier works. We challenge them to ‘tell’ their story in small. Herewith a collection of handmade, one-of-a-kind, affordable artworks by contemporary makers.
The Post Modern Collection is a traveling exhibition that showcases all possibilities and potential in small. The compact measurements of a postcard challenge artists to think and work differently. These new artworks are often new directions for the artists. New experiments, horizons, and territories.
We work together with artists and designers, and we present them in both the art world and in the design context. We broaden the network of all participants.
Our initiative acts as a springboard for these makers. New opportunities, connections and collaborations are being made. With the revenues of our sales, artists can invest in their general artistic developments.
The presentation of the Post Modern Collection triggers the public, because of its dynamics. One can see totally different narratives, techniques, and materials. People get a good sense of what goes on in the (applied) arts. Plus: Art lovers with a smaller budget can start their art collection.
Woes van Haaften (founder) and Roosje van Donselaar will continue to invite artists and designers to showcase new possibilities within the postcard format.
On this website you'll find a selection of the available works. You're very welcome to admire the whole collection at our studio in Amsterdam.
