Nieuwe Vide consists of an exhibition space, artists' studios and a project space. There are 25 studios, where artists and creatives work. We collaborate with these artists and creatives whenever possible. Through our exhibitions we combine young and upcoming artists with more established names. For young artists this is a good way to expand their network. We provide young artists with a space to experiment, which gives them tools to professionalise their practice and helps launch their career. Our programme of exhibitions, workshops and talks addresses a diverse range of topics, but is mainly inspired by elements from popular culture, new media and politics. True to our squatters roots twenty-five years ago we are socially engaged. We operate on a community level and offer a diverse programme of educational and social activities, such as a weekly lunch with artists and local residents and a professional art training course for teenagers.
Arthur, Daniel and Domink probably have a larger pantry, a better equipped tent and a sharper knife than you. All of them identify as preppers: they spend their free time accumulating supplies and building self defense equipment, so they are prepared for potential crisis emergence. In the experimental documentary “We’ll have time for that later” they turn into camera men and give directions to the filmmaker Verena Hahn, who now becomes a protagonist herself. As they instruct her on how to light a bonfire or how to cut firewood, they also convey ideas of how communities should be organized and who has the right to lead or speak. Film maker Verena Hahn shot the documentary shortly before COVID 19 turned the rather hypothetical scenarios from the film into the new normal. The film has been shown at Stroom Den Haag, Kunstverein Harburger Bahnhof and won first prize at the Münzenberg film competition. At Supermarket Art Fair, Hahn will present the film together with a furniture piece, designed and built together with product designer and carpenter Moritz Müller.
