Het HEM is open from Thursday until Sunday from noon–midnight

Het HEM is a home for contemporary culture, situated in a former munitions factory on the Hembrug site in Zaandam.
While living in a seemingly hopeless age of confusion and dystopia FUTURE/RETRO tries to create a safe haven where we can connect with ourselves, others and the world we are living in through sonic art and ground ourselves. It is a humble attempt by Nikolai van Zeeland to enhance the sonic relationship between human, nature, and technology through listening to soundworks from various fields such as dark ambient, field recordings, experimental, electronic and leftfield dub. FUTURE/RETRO will be having it’s first public appearance with Episode 08 at Dynamic Range Music Bar.
