Friday and Saturday 12–24h
Art is our first language. Throughout the year, Het HEM presents a range of temporary art programmes as well as more permanent art installations.
May 7 – 25
There is always music to listen to at Het HEM, with programmes focused on experimental ways to create, present and experience music in the building through listening sessions, live shows, and musical artis-in-residence initiatives.
Come by for a drink and a bite, wine and dine at one of our restaurants Zanini, Bois or get a sandwich at Bakery Solinger,. With good wether we suggest you settle down on our sunny terrace on the Costa del Zaano.
Het HEM loves books. During your visit, come lose yourself in the library's rich selection or discover new favourites in the SANZ Shop.
Situated in a former munitions factory, Het HEM is a new home for contemporary culture.
The building's industrial design and our experimental art programme bring ambience and meaning to every event.
Today traversing can be mentioned in any context; from axial constructions to border passing political actions. As an artist community, ArtScience likes to think in multi-dimensional spaces. During Traversing Bodies they connect Het HEM to transdisciplinary knowledge productions.
Between the travelling metal plates of RAAAF, the students of the ArtScience Interfaculty (Royal Academy of Art Den Haag and the Royal Conservatory of Den Haag) will hide soundscapes, play with movement, find installations and enrich collective awareness of (auditory) atmospheres.
From 12-7 pm the program wants to invite the intergenerational public to discover and learn through workshops.
