ODBK is an activist organization that aims to create a more equal, diverse, inclusive and democratic art world. ODBK seeks to do this by diversifying and increasing the number of people who understand and engage with contemporary art. We want to see a bigger number of active participants in the decision-making which defines the current and future art world. By decision making ODBK refers to the ability to influence the selection of artists in art spaces - public or private, known or unknown, the relevance and importance of artists and their works for the art world, cap-prices of artworks, and distribution of public funds for the arts. ODBK argues that this should be done and decided without influence from factors such as income, gender, nationality, social status and any other potentially altering kind of identity.
