SCHUNCK*, situated in Heerlen at the heart of the Euregion, is a multidisciplinary institute devoted to contemporary visual art, architecture, music, literature and film - and all imaginable crossovers between the disciplines – manifested by means of presentations, collections and educational projects. A modern public library and music school also rank amongst the amenities at SCHUNCK*, both working in modern-day fashion to promote reading enjoyment and musical learning. SCHUNCK* is housed in the historic Glaspaleis, the “glass palace” built by architect Frits Peutz in 1935.

These finalists (with an accompanying text in English) can be seen as part of a travelling exhibition which, after Brussels and Katowice, can be seen in SCHUNCK* from 28 January to 14 March 2018.
