Het HEM is reopening Chapter 3HREE Maarten Spruyt from June 27th on. The exhibition can be visited on the last weekend of June, all weekends in July and the first weekend in August on Saturday and Sunday from 1pm until 8pm.
Thanks to the generous donations made to our ‘Shoot Us With Love!’ crowd funding campaign we can re-open our doors to Chapter 3HREE Maarten Spruyt to the public. Most of the exhibited artists have been so charitable to leave their works for a period longer. Unfortunatelly th works from Ivana Basic and Cyprien Guillard are no longer exhibited here. It is necessary to make a time slot reservation for Chapter 3HREE via our ticket page.
If we succeed in finding sufficient structural support, we will resume our own programme in 2021 and return in March with Chapter 4OUR and 5IVE, in collaboration with Simon(e) van Saarloos and Rem Koolhaas / Samir Bantal respectively.
Het HEM is a home for contemporary culture, situated in a former munitions factory on the Hembrug site in Zaandam.

The horses in the work Les Chevaux du Pont de Gau graze in the Camargue, a nature reserve in the southeast of France. Images of this rare, old horse breed, recognisable by its white coat and mane, grazing in the swampy landscape have become a clichéd image of the region. In addition, the deterioration of their natural habitat and the appearance of various viruses have been a serious threat to the survival of this animal for years.
Anotherview is an artistic collective that chooses the middle way between interior design and conceptual art. They are constantly looking all over the world for new perspectives, each telling a unique story about our society and the time we live in, in their own way. They capture these on camera as a 24-hour image. Embedding in the framework means that we, as a sort of observing outsider, become part of the face of the world.
