‘HARD-CORE’ is an Amsterdam based artists’ gathering that operates as a non-hierarchical and non-authoritarian organization. The group develops curatorial methods which objectify preferential aspects of exhibition-making. Since its establishment in 2011 hard-core has worked and exhibited in The Netherlands, Czech Republic, Sweden and Iceland. The group meets on a regular basis to have a ‘hardcore-session‘; a discussion format where a minimum of 2 hours is spent on discussing intensively each participants work and intentions.
