Open March 2022
Art is our first language. Throughout the year, Het HEM presents a range of temporary art programmes as well as more permanent art installations.
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 our restaurant, or 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.
Olave Talks is a series of free form conversations with critical thinkers, doers, artists, researchers and activists. Olave Talks is an invitation to witness the potential of vulnerable conversations as a tool of knowledge production and knowledge sharing.
Olave’s next talk will be with Chapter 4OUR Guest Simon(e) van Saarloos. Van Saarloos wrote essays, opinion pieces and fiction, for amongst others de Volkskrant, NRC Handelsblad, Vrij Nederland and De Correspondent and has published several books. They studied philosophy and literature and obtained a master's degree from the Dutch Art Institute. In 2021, Van Saarloos will start a PhD in Rhetoric at UC Berkeley. For Chapter 4OUR in Het HEM, Simon(e) has curated the exhibition ABUNDANCE, which will certainly be discussed during this talk.
