Extrapool is an independent art space for experimental music, performance art, screenings, small press publications and exhibitions, located in Nijmegen, the Netherlands.
"Extrapool operates in three work fields: sound, art and print and we try to work together as much as possible. Extrapool offers the highest quality experimental performance art, sound installations and extreme/rough print products (Knust) in the Netherlands and internationally. The focus is on DIY culture, graphic designers, new artists without large distribution networks, and fringe artists with semi-popular concepts. We offer the experiment that might go wrong. We show the unpolished. We undo music. Our stage, our auditorium, is best described as: a remarkable context in a flexible, changing, adaptable setting. On the one side informal and intimate, on the other side explicit (dominant) and 'artistic'."

Zines printed (or partially printed) at Knust/Extrapool:
Slimtarra is Extrapools thinnest project. Extrapool regularly invites artists from various fields to make a SLIMTARRA wallpaper design for the public-space. So the wallpaper changes every so often and transforms the room and gives it a dynamic appearance (also the walls are growing thicker and thicker). Sometimes the designs are aesthetically pleasing or conceptually sound. SLIMTARRA is printed in Extrapool's renowned stencil workshop Knust. The stencil printer influences the pattern and the final result. It can only print on A3 size sheets, the limited size for the stencil machines. So the wallpaper is not printed, as is more common, on long widths of paper. There is a big advantage to that: by turning the sheet, you can play with the pattern.
