Het HEM is open from Thursday until Sunday from noon–midnight
Music Bar, Fri–Sat 6 pm–1 am
Het HEM is a home for contemporary culture, situated in a former munitions factory on the Hembrug site in Zaandam.
Tamar Harpaz (1979, Israel) creates spatial installations based on analogue techniques that are activated by the public. They function as decors that unexpectedly label the viewer as a central protagonist. On the basis of association, they offer the visitor a cinematic and narrative experience.
In the tunnel of Het HEM, Harpaz presents a new comic strip, which plays with the feeling of connection with the environment. Walking along a series of projections, visitors are made aware of their connection with the (natural) environment and their influence on its development.
