Support Your Local Dealer

_thek-collective takes over EXPO area!


_thek is a multilocal and curatorial collective. They are creating space for arts and design, make and sell magazines, prints and apparel. _thek is the last syllable of the German words Bibliothek (library) and Videothek (video library).


One of their projects that they going to bring to the Forward Festival is a non-profit project aiming to support creatives, small business owners and people in financial need now: Support your local dealers!
32 designers and artists from all over the world, like Forward Festival speakers Eike König, Mirko Borsche, Zwupp and ABC Dinamo, contributed artworks along the lines of solidarity, communion and equity and sponsored their very own visual response to this ubiquitous crisis.


But don’t be fooled, there are many more surprises waiting for you in their booth!
