Event through June 24
On the 24th of June, Ann Demeester will moderate an evening about about innovation in the arts and the need for continuity. Since five years de Appel again has a remarkable home: Broedplaats Lely, a brutalistic building in a diffuse part of town, where the accelerated effects of the gentrification of the surrounding are clearly visible. As an institution de Appel is part of this ongoing temporality. Now that the precarity this enhances seems to become more extensive, it is time to start the conversation.
Exhibition through September 01
From June 15th the work of photographer Stephan Keppel will be on view in de Livingroom. Keppel photographs the urban-fabric of cities he meanders through. With his camera he focusses his gaze on the details that are usually overlooked by our daily gaze. He looks for pattern(s) by means of the small stiches in our metropolitan reality, or even better, there where the configuration of the urban fabric slips or has been stretched and manipulated by use. Upon these outings into the cityscapes, he frames and captures the many different smaller rhythms and patterns present in our daily urban life.
Exhibition through June 25

‘Stories of Belonging’ creates space for the often invisible stories of our neighbours in Amsterdam West, stories that explore when we feel at home somewhere.‘Stories of Belonging’ will take shape as an exhibition with work by several artists and students at de Appel and a series of meetings about stories that deserve to be told.
The new publication 'Drafting futures, remembering a building' by Rosa te Velde explores, connects and recalls the many lives of one building in Amsterdam Nieuw-West over the span of more than sixty years. Plans for the future are constantly made and unmade – what will this place become? How does this building help to understand the ideologies behind city planning, segregation and gentrification?
