on site is a non-profit art organisation working internationally for the promotion of emerging visual artists. Through the realization of national and international exhibitions and projects we aim to encourage international exchange and mobility as well as to support young artists to present themselves also beyond their national borders. on site brings contemporary art to new places, to sites that are not primarily known for its art scene and are outside the usual art hubs. The exhibition format on site on tour plays with the idea of artistic mobility.
