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.

Shock Forest Group (2019) is an international research team consisting of architects, cartographers, linguists, coders, urban planners, sound makers, biologists, designers and engineers. It is an experiment in open research, where the research categories surface as the research develops. It is also an experiment in alternative education, a classroom without a teacher, where learning emerges as a product of polyphony.
These livelihoods make worlds too – and they show us how to look around rather than aheadAnna Tsing
Daria Kiseleva (RU, 1989) is a graphic designer, artist and researcher. Her practice and skills are a direct outcome of her interests and research of the digital image, the politics of virtual geography and the hidden mechanisms of digital technologies. “In my practice I often explore the migration of technologies and ideas from one domain to another and the images and objects they produce. For example, from civil and cultural domains to the fields of warfare and surveillance, and vice versa, and translate it into narratives.” In 2015-16 she was a researcher at the Jan van Eyck Academy in Maastricht and in 2014 she graduated from the Werkplaats Typografie in Arnhem. About the coming research, she says: “I am interested in exploring the position of art as an interim between war and commerce, between nature and culture. In exploring the notion of local vs. global, inside vs. outside, by excavating myths and histories of the location— the forest as an island and sound proof chamber and the terrain as a secret isolated zone. I like to make juxtapositions, putting things together that don’t necessarily fit together. When you dig deeper you see that it is not so isolated.”
