Blank Slate is an exhibition space in-print. It is a large format, full color publication in English. Blank Slate is a discursive platform for artists, architects, critics and curators to explore ideas about the relation between praxis and theory, as well as present and debate their work. Blank Slate combines the topicality of an academic journal with the rigour and production qualities of a catalog. It covers the fields of architecture, urban & regional planning, visual arts, product & fashion design, sociology and contemporary thinking. Blank Slate is a journal in the quest of novelty in artistic praxis.
