PASSE-AVANT is an online magazine for contemporary art

From 2016 to 2017 curator and writer Carina Bukuts and artist Sonia Knop have organised exhibitions in Frankfurt, Germany, and Tel-Aviv, Israel, and founded PASSE-AVANT as a platform for exhibition making, discourse and discussion. Soon, PASSE-AVANT developed further as a journalistic medium and is now an online magazine for contemporary art. With a focus on the Rhine-Main area and its jungle of exhibitions and initiatives, our aim is to pay attention to artistic practices and exhibitions that can easily be overlooked.

We write reviews on current exhibitions, announce shows before they happen and commission collaborations with artists, photographers and graphic designers.

Feel free to get in touch.


PASSE-AVANT is a non-profit magazine but if you'd like to support us, please visit our Patreon page where you can donate a monthly contribution. Many thanks in advance!
