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.

While our doors have been closed to the public we have worked on maintaining our old house.

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.

Tender Loving Care – Kevin Hunt & Harriet Rose Morley

For the period September-October 2019, artists Kevin Hunt and Harriet Rose Morley have been invited to redevelop the reception rooms of HMK. Together they will investigate how the spaces are currently being used, where the specific needs of the users and the public lie, and come up with inventive solutions to turn HMK into a pleasant, welcome place again. This ‘update’ does not proceed according to a predetermined plan but must be understood as an ongoing dialogue between artist, space and the organization. At the end of October the first results will be shown at HMK.

HMK has launched a crowdfunding campaign for this project. Donate now via voordekunst.nl, receive nice rewards and help us to realize this project.
