In 2017 Veem decided to transform to the ‘100 Day House’. 100 Days this is a house at work. 100 Days this house is filled with voices; old and new, young and established, coming from the arts and beyond, coming from Amsterdam and abroad. 100 Days this house is welcoming artists to work and present, welcoming spectators to meet and discuss. Exploring what performance can and should be in movement, time, and discourse; questioning what we take as given, performing new proposals for ways of looking, and taking us on journeys to unknown worlds. 100 Days a place for art, politics, ideas and people to meet.
100 Days a place for art, politics, ideas and people to meet.
We do this with presenting and producing performances; radical, daring, and experimental work, from inspiring local and international artists.
We do this in discourse by organising book launches, hosting symposia, publishing ‘words for the future’, making podcasts and hosting House Events.
We do this in interaction with our neighbours and our partners in the city and the international arts field by hosting Veem House dinners, with welcoming you to audience platform Les Spectateurs and by inviting artists who unfold the neighbourhood.
We do this by collectively being at work, with organising weekly Chi Kung classes for everyone accessible, hosting several series of Reading & Research groups on theoretical and inspirational sources...and turn thoughts into action in the Long Now labs.
As some of you might notice, we continue with the same main themes as last year. We are not done. So, we stick to them. We don't swallow, but keep chewing!
