IPMAP 2024 The future of our planet

In continuation of the 2021, 2022 and 2023 International Print Mail Art Projects, Grafein invites you to participate in IPMAP 2024 ‘The future of our planet’.

Rising sea levels, climate change, flooding, drought, changing ecosystems, biodiversity, ecological footprint, causes and consequences, future dreams and activism, all play a role in the future of our planet.

A selection of postcard-sized prints by artists worldwide will be exhibited in the Tuinzaal of Het Markiezenhof in Bergen op Zoom, as part of the exhibition ‘AWARENESS: a matter of time’ featuring works by Belgian photographer and EU climate pact ambassador Christian Clauwers and other artists.

From July 14 to October 27, 2024,  Markiezenhof in Bergen op Zoom will host the exhibition AWARENESS: a matter of time.
