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.
What is important now is to recover our sensesSusan Sontag
Silent film screening of a reconstructed version of the film Colour film of the Netherlands Steamship Company – also known as The colours and glory of our tropics from 1938 by Dutch filmmaker, photographer and journalist, Alphons Hustinx. It is one of the oldest color films by the Dutch government (Rijksvoorlichtingsdienst).
The film was commissioned by The Netherlands Steamship Company and documents a trip from The Netherlands to the former Dutch East Indies shortly before the beginning of the Second World War. Due to its political and historical context, different debatable aspects of western superiority, power as well as legitimation, appropriation and exoticism are captured in the footage. The Dutch-Indonesian music collector and dj Derozan will reflect the film material and the conveyed contents through a vinyl dj-set.
