POPPOSITIONS was established by Liv Vaisberg and Pieter Vermeulen in 2012 as a counterpoint to mainstream art fairs, and has grown as the leading fair offering an alternative market for contemporary art.

In the past seven years, POPPOSITIONS has been dealing with questions of artistic agency, self-organisation, cynicism and criticality in order to shape its profile within the cultural and economic landscape.

POPPOSITIONS is more than an art fair. It encourages new, experimental and innovative approaches to the art market. It is both a curated exhibition and an ongoing critical dialogue.

POPPOSITIONS strongly believes in a collaborative approach, and works closely with artists, curators and collectors. POPPOSITIONS attracts wide support from the art sector and benefits from extensive media coverage.
