Accepting the fragilities in the wake of facing the other, I Am Because the Other Thought About Me celebrates the playfulness of shame and uncertainty to let a new beauty emerge.
Students of the Royal Academy of Art in The Hague will respond to the exhibition Fluid Desires, an exhibition that researches the liquified 21st century. They are guided in this artistic process by critics, curators and artist: Julia Mullié, Arash Fakhim, Alex de Vries and Heske ten Cate.
Within the context of the current exhibition ‘Fluid Desires’, Nest has developed an educational program in collaboration with the American School of The Hague (ASH). The photography students are guided by a professional photographer in their artistic process to create new work responding to the theme of the exhibition.
(Nederlands) Tijdens Museumnacht kids presenteren de leerlingen van de Vuurvlinder en de Johan de Wittscholengroep hun kunstwerken die ze in samenwerking met Oscar Peters voor de achtbaan van VOLTA maakten.
This performance by artist Hicham Berrada in the exhibition Fluid Desires takes place during Hoogtij.
Florentijn van Rootselaar shows what a fluid world looks like, but he also asks whether it is possible to get past that fluidity. Is there a future possible with new traditions and new forms of coexistence? To answer these questions, Van Rootselaar draws from the conversations he had with Zygmunt Bauman.
Nest and Electriciteitsfabriek invite you during VOLTA to join us on Fridays for a soup dinner with Oscar. Every week a guest will be invited for a talk with the artist.
The works by Oscar Peters (1981) move, ride, chop and float. ‘Halo’ is the most recent work in his series ‘Shakers’.
This winter Nest and the Electriciteitsfabriek present VOLTA, where artist Oscar Peters will build a lively world where popular entertainment and macabre spectacles are applauded.
Today’s world can be experienced as very fluid. Nothing is fixed, everything is in motion. This hybrid, unstable world serves as a point of departure for the artists in ‘Fluid Desires’.
Celebrating Christmas has never been so much fun. Young artists, theater makers and performers pay tribute to Fluxus during this Christmasdinner in Zaal 3 and Nest.
(Nederlands) Doe een keer per maand mee aan een leuke workshop op woensdagmiddag, speciaal voor Verwende Nesten.
The sensitivity towards language, humour and the banality of the everyday are central topics in the exhibition 7 year old me. Nest shows Wim T. Schippers and Daniël van Straalen in a unique collaboration. In a playful, but serious manner, they attach value to seemingly worthless things. By disrupting existing, albeit invisible codes, the artists throw you back onto your own intuition, in which the anti-climax triumphs.
