The Pink House was an artist-run space, situated in the north of Antwerp. An old house with three floors and its facade painted in pink. For the last two decades it has enabled and hosted many happenings across different art forms with a constantly changing group of inhabitants, working models and changing visions. At the last moment the place combined living space, shared studios, residency guest room and a ground floor space suitable to host events. From 2017 till 2020 Ersi Varveri and Gijs Waterschoot moved to the Pink House to live and continue the activities in the space. In January 2018 they got a photocopy machine and formed a publishing workshop: the Pink House Press, making their own editions, magazines and zines. They also see the pink house press as an experimental platform where they discover other possibilities alongside printing.
The Pink House will soon be demolished because of the gentrification machine, but the pink house press moves on.
