26th February – 10th March
(Private View 25th February 6pm – 9pm)


BACKLIT will host Kunstpodium T, an independent laboratory and platform for art students and contemporary artists. Kunstpodium T facilitates the development of the identity and cultural entrepreneurship for a new generation of artists. How do you create a bridge linking students graduating from art school to the professional field? How do you build a network as a young artist? Encounters, cooperation, networking and visibility for a new generation of artists are the points of focus of the Apprentice/Master project.

The Apprentice/Master project matches talented fine art students (BA or MA) from different art schools in Europe to renowned contemporary artists. During the project, groups of three to four apprentices work together and exhibit along with their master artist. The coming season will result in a series of 26 exhibitions in the United Kingdom, Spain, Lithuania, Belgium, Czech Republic, Hungary, Slovenia, The Netherlands and Ireland.
