Programme

Dear HMK visitors and followers,

HMK reopens on November 26 after a partial lockdown period with new COVID-19 measures. We follow RIVM and government guidelines closely and tailor our program and opening hours to the latest developments in order to keep us all safe. Please keep an eye on our website and social media for updates.

Happier Than a Seagull with a French Fry

Priscila Fernandes
Residency dates: 1 June – 11 July, 2020
Open for public: 11 June – 11 July, 2020
Cinema: Priscila Fernandes, Portrait of an Artist

After almost three months of being closed to the public, Hotel Maria Kapel [HMK] re-opened its doors for the public with Happier Than a Seagull with a French Fry by artist Priscila Fernandes. With this residency we invited visitors to witness the creation of an impressive new work in Fernandes’ Labour Series, an ongoing reflection on the dichotomy between work and leisure. In times of an almost complete collapse of the boundaries between work private life, socialising and time to enjoy, Fernandes’ project offers a possibility to reflect on the connections between work, our bodies and the systems that connect them.

In response to Black Lives Matter and the upcoming demonstration in Hoorn

On Saturday, FvD leader Thierry Baudet placed flowers at the foot of the statue of Jan Pieterszoon Coen (1587-1629) in celebration of “his hero”. Although there should be room for different voices to speak up, we do not find the racist and horrific actions of the past heroic. We are in support of the removal of the statue of Coen and will be participating in the peaceful demonstration tomorrow evening (19 June, 19.00, Roode Steen, Hoorn) and strongly feel the demonstration should go forward as planned. We invite everyone who believes in rethinking, rewriting and changing history to work for a better present and future to join the gathering.
