While a 7×4 meter pool by artist in residence Rik Dijkhuizen fills our chapel (on view until 13 September), Hotel Maria Kapel [HMK] presents resident project space at7 and a public programme that explores how we can host and care for our communities, local and international, with pleasure and accountability. Please join us for a day of learning, lounging, eating and performances curated by at7 on 22 August.
To That Special Someone, Part II – summer at HMK
A day of performances and care: Saturday, 22 August 2020, 12.00 – 21.00
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.
Apply now for a six-week residency or one-year residency for HMK’s 2021 year programme ‘On Shelter’. Deadline is 25 May 2020.
We’ve taken time to reflect and have decided that HMK will remain closed until 4 June, due to the recent developments concerning the Covid-19 pandemic.
Hotel Maria Kapel [HMK] is pleased to announces its 2020 research programme. With Slow burn HMK takes time to reflect on what it means to care – for the art institution, for artists, for audiences and for ourselves.

Remember this exhibition? Vincent Vulsma, ‘In the Hold’ was on view earlier this year at HMK. These works are now part of the exhibition ‘Cultural Threads’ at Textielmuseum Tilburg.
This week HMK is closed due to the build down of the exhibition Notes from a trembling community in a wilful state of flux. From next week, the Maria chapel will be open again from Wednesday to Saturday, from 1 to 5 pm.
Unfortunately this vacancy is for Dutch speaking people only.
