2031 EM Haarlem
Nieuwe Vide Artspace was founded in 1994, by squatters and artists. Nieuwe Vide organises art projects, with young and upcoming artists, but we also include older, experienced artists. We promote the experiment, and give artists space to try out things. We do 6-8 exhibitions a year in our exhibition space. Nieuwe Vide also houses a project space, used for educational and artist-workshops. We have about 25 studios, rented by visual artists, graphic designers, illustrators, animators, and an instrument builder to name a few. Nieuwe Vide, as such, is a launching pad for upcoming artists' careers.
Nieuwe Vide's program from 2016-2018 was about counterculture. This was funded by the Council of Haarlem, Mondriaan Fund and BankGiro Loterij Fonds. In 2019 & 2020 we 'll explore absurdism, linking it to our society, which seems to be getting weirder every day. The program will be funded by the council of Haarlem and Mondriaan Fund.
True to its roots, Nieuwe Vide is socially engaged and also operates on a community level. We have a soup lunch weekly. Each year we offer an educational trajectory about art for kids aged 14-19, Nieuwe Vide Academy. We also have a filmclub, called CineClub, a film and discussion trajectory for people with a non-Dutch background.
Nieuwe Vide presents artist Data Bosma. Bosma uses a large variety of media in her installations which results in creating a space or atmosphere. Her work researches the humane aspect in technology and on the web, using the digital platform as a way to analyse people or herself. Often her work is about desire or obsession, shown afterwards in offline sculptures and spaces with the same intensity.
