This year, the Community Research Programme of ArtEZ and Het HEM is dedicated to Chapter 5IVE, a large-scale exhibition by architects Rem Kolhaas and Samir Bantal that focuses on the tension between the countryside and the city.
About Chapter 5IVE
According to the two architects, major changes in our way of life no longer take place in the city, but in the areas outside it. Rural areas are hardest hit by the impact of climate change, but may also offer the best solutions for dealing with these impacts. At the same time, the gap between urban and rural areas seems to be widening, which creates tensions. Chapter 5IVE is an invitation by Koolhaas and Bantal for artists to use their creative work and artistic research to work with the tension between countryside and city.
The Community Research Programme accepted this invitation and challenge with both hands. For two months, participants examined the countryside and the city through workshops, lectures, the making of art and critical dialogue. On 5, 6 and 7 August, the participants will present their research in a temporary exhibition space in Het HEM.
