Het HEM, a contemporary art center, is a project by Dutch and Belgian entrepreneur Alex Mulder. The art space will be located in the former ammunitions factory in Zaanstad, outside Amsterdam, the Netherlands.

The first project will be curated by famous figures in the Dutch hip-hop scene Edson Sabajo and Guillaume Schmidt. The duo will present a boxing school designed by artist Gabriel Lester. British female boxing champion Michele Aboro was invited to host youth clinics there.

“We want our audience to feel at home, to be inspired and to open their minds to new experiences, intuitions, and creative ideas,” says Kim Tuin, Het HEM’s director. “Using art to raise important questions concerning contemporary society, we hope to give people a more active and inclusive understanding of our world.”

In addition to exhibition spaces, the centre will host artist studios, a library, a restaurant and a hotel. The opening is scheduled for June 21, 2019.
