the Blindpainters

The Blindpainters Foundation is an Amsterdam based Art Foundation founded in 1994.

It produces transcendent projects in a contemporary art context. Metaphorically the name Blindpainters is understood as in ‘turning a blind eye on facing constrains’, when manifesting complex projects. Quality and care are top priorities. The manpower behind it is a sustainable network of people, who not only enjoy immensely the energy released by the projects but also believe that these projects are to set milestones in the journey of art history. By realising the impossible they find the inspiration for continuity and uniqueness.

Blindpainters is multi-tasked, from art production work to curatorial arrangements, from film productions to book publishing. Please find out more about these projects in other sections on this website.

The teams include people in Amsterdam and abroad:

Hans Kalliwoda (artist)

Ciska van Beek (grants fundraising WiaS)

Nadine Myk (office management)


Michi Meier (‘no risk no fun’, film production, Stuttgart)

Arno Vrijman (multimedia)

Frank Gössinger (printed matter, design, Cologne)

David Haberkamp (printed matter, design, Cologne)

Luis Soler Monte (printed matter, design, Cologne)
