Extrapool is a venue and art space based in Nijmegen, The Netherlands, operating in 3 workfields: sound, art and print. Extrapool shows a diversity in sound art, performance art, short exhibitions and high quality printed matter. Concerts, workshops, screenings and book presentations are organized in our venue space on a regular basis. Extrapool is a great space for discovery. It shows works of artists without extensive distribution networks and artists who operate in the border areas of art and music. The events of Extrapool are characterized by their playful context in a convertible venue space. Informal and intimate on one hand, distinctive and artistic on the other.

Knust is the name of the graphic department within Extrapool. Knust represents a print workspace with bookbinding facilities, and has been highly specialized in the stencilprinting technique since 1984, also known as Risograph or mimeograph printing. The print workspace is founded by and for artists and offers the possibility to let your own work be stencilprinted in a reasonable edition for a reasonable price. You can also work at the print workspace on a DIY base. Next to the main print workspace based in Nijmegen, Knust also manages a DIY print workspace in collaboration with Amsterdams Grafisch Atelier in Amsterdam.

Additionaly Knust also self publishes and has an ongoing residency program within Extrapool:

- Art Prison: an artist is invited to make a stencilprinted publication with Knust during a residency at Extrapool in 14 hardworking days.
- Work Holiday: an artist can send in a proposal for a stencilprinted book to make with Knust during a residency at Extrapool in 7 hardworking days.

The Art Prison residency is only on invitation, the Work Holiday residency is on open call. Knust/Extrapool aims to realize two of each of these residencies a year.

The program of Extrapool is diverse and continuously changing, in the recent past there have been sound residencies (such as Brombron and Hausse) in Extrapool as well as there have been art residencies (such as Deelstaat). In addition Extrapool and Knust are open to project proposals and residency proposals from artists who would like to independently and privately make use of the studio, venue space or print workspace. All in consultation with the team of Extrapool.
