The Ansichten Club researches the postcard and its function, aesthetic values, its history and future. Furthermore the postcard is often the instigator of conversations about the imageculture of tourism and travel.
At the moment we are working on various projects as results of our research.
The Ansichten Club was founded in 2015 in Amsterdam by designer Byrthe Lemmens, image researcher Elki Boerdam and visual anthropologist Jip van Steenis.
We are working towards an event upcoming July 2018 in Tugela85, in Amsterdam. For this event we will investigate the image making of Amsterdam, and in particular Amsterdam Oost.
We will invite several lecturers, present our own project and organise a postcard swap afternoon. More info to follow in spring 2018.
