MK Edition

As part of its activities to generate funding for the MK Award, the MK Award Foundation proudly presents the MK Edition – a set of three lavishly produced portfolios in a limited edition of 40, containing prints by thirty renowned visual artists of the former MKgalerie Rotterdam/Berlin.

At the request of the MK Award Foundation, each artist contributed a new work. Each of the three portfolios (‘MK Edition Green’, ‘MK Edition Blue’, and ‘MK Edition Black’) comprises prints (40×50 cm) by ten artists. For the selection of the portfolios, Dutch art critic Rob Perrée served as curator.

“These portfolios, in my opinion, are much more than just a unique collection of art works; at the same time, they pay due homage to two remarkable people, that allowed themselves to be guided by an unconditional passion for Art and by respect for both the uniqueness and willfulness of artists.
The funds raised will help granting a prize – the MK Award – to artists whose works and ways of working respond to this mentality.
That’s why I respect this initiative.” – Rob Perrée, January 16 2012

All prints of the MK Edition have been produced with great care, using high quality Hahnemühle Barita FB 350 gsm and Photo Rag 308 gsm papers, and durable Epson K3 Ultrachrome inks.

The portfolios of the MK Edition are available as a courtesy gift to our Benefactors. Read more.
