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.
Originally from Tokyo and now based in Amsterdam, Guruguru Brain is an independent music label focusing on feel-good sounds across Asia. While seeking to promote current Asian artists to the entire world, Go Kurosawa and Tomo Katsurada, founders of the Japanese rock group Kikagaku Moyo, decided in 2014 to create their own independent record label. Guruguru Brain consciously avoids reselling the West what it already knows, and prioritises artists who have a distinctive, unique sound, that only this label can release. This has led to the discovery of numerous talents, compiled in a catalogue of over twenty albums spanning all styles.
