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.

Het HEM Foundation is a foundation affiliated with Het HEM BV that has an ANBI status, with an independent board – providing a broad and international network in the arts sector and the socio-cultural domain – and a single manager appointed by Het HEM’s board. Het HEM Foundation has been commissioned to produce a multidisciplinary programme that largely takes place within Het HEM and appeals to a broad local, national and international audience. Our programme focuses on experimentation, human values, the experience of art and the unique context of our building.
Located at the intersection of a cosmopolitan city and nearby village areas, industry and nature, past and future, Het HEM is uniquely positioned to become a base for anyone with a thirst for inspiration, insight and encounters as a sounding board to reflect on our current times. With its programme, Het HEM ushers a new movement that supports artistic experimentation and lowers the threshold for art for its audiences, with the aim to increase cultural participation and public involvement in social concerns.
To achieve this goal and to position Het HEM as a leading cultural institution, the Foundation actively seeks cooperation with local, national and international artists, culture-makers and financial partners such as funding bodies, individuals and companies.
