2031 EM Haarlem
Nieuwe Vide is founded in 1994. We are founded by squatters and artists.
Nieuwe Vide organises art projects, with young and upcoming artists, but also with older artists. So basically, it's not about age, but about the artists, and their ideas. We have an exhibition space, in which we organise 6-8 exhibitions per year; we have a small project space, which is used to do workshops (like Sound Hackspace, which we just started, and which is about sound, technology and hacking) and we have about 25 studio's, which are rented by artists, graphic designers, copy writers, animation studios, a violin builder and so on.
Nieuwe Vide is doing a program about counter culture in "2016" and "2017 and 2018". This program is funded by the City of Haarlem, and by Mondriaan Fund. We also organise things to get the local community involved. We a.o. eat soup with the locals twice a month, organise an educational project for kids in the age of 14-19 years old (Nieuwe Vide Academy) and organise a cineclub for people with a non-western background (Nieuwe Vide Cineclub).
Nieuwe Vide was founded in 1994 as an artist run space. Nieuwe Vide has it's own exhibition space (contemporary art), about 25 artist studio's and a small shop, in which we sell all kinds of nice, small art works for small prices. Nieuwe Vide is especially interested in popular culture, and specifically in crossovers with other disciplines (gaming, theater, literature, film, comics). We are very socially engaged as well.
In 2016 Nieuwe Vide will do a year program about counter culture. We are looking into what counter culture can mean in times like these, but also what historical figures of counter culture still mean. In 2016 we started with a project about writer Thomas Pynchon (In Search of Thomas Pynchon, 16th of January - 8thof March 2016). At the end of 2016 we will do a project about playwright Bertolt Brecht (The Threepenny Opera.A collaboration with art academy KABK in The Hague, Holland) in which art students will research opera and Bertolt Brecht for 6 weeks, and after that will make an opera.
Toon Fibbe, whose work we present at Supermarket, will be one of the teachers in this project. At Supermarket, Toon Fibbe a.o. will present a new version of his work 'The Birth of all flesh", in which a character tries to interpret the patterns in what seems to be an abstract expressionist painting as a market chart... Fibbe is interested in how art does relate to the financial market, and so to the current financial and economical situation. www.toonfibbe.com
