HMK is a cultural non-profit organization. Although we are financially supported by the Mondriaan Fund and the Municipality of Hoorn, we are also dependent on other forms of monetary support to realize our programme and to keep our exhibitions free of entrance. Your support is therefore vital to special art projects in the future! You can contribute to the future of HMK in various ways, namely by means of a one-off or periodic donation or by becoming our Friend.
Why support HMK?
Hotel Maria Kapel is an artist-in-residence, exhibition space and cinema in Hoorn which supports national and international artists in the production of new work. The public programme of exhibitions, screenings, lectures, workshops and publications focuses on researching what contemporary art is and brings the public closer to the practice on which it is based. In this way HMK promotes connections between regional, national and international artists, cultural institutions, lovers of, and acquaintances with contemporary art.
For the period 2018-2019 we are working with a new conceptual framework: Undercurrents. With this programme HMK investigates the relationship between historical and contemporary forms of movement such as colonialism, trade and migration, as well as the infrastructure and the meaning of mobility in the cultural field. Now more than ever it is necessary to have this public debate, to reveal the traces of the past and to learn from them. We believe that HMK with Undercurrents makes a special contribution to this dialogue, but we need your help for that.
