About the exhibition and the research
Samir Bantal and Rem Koolhaas are the next guests of Het HEM. Since its opening in 2019, cultural centre Het HEM in Zaandam has made a name for itself with its Chapter exhibitions in which every year, a new guest is invited to develop a programme for the factory hall in Zaandam together with its own curators. After previous collaborations with fashion & lifestyle designers Edson Sabajo & Guillaume Schmidt, music composer Nicolás Jaar, stylist Maarten Spruyt and philosopher Simon(e) van Saarloos, Chapter 5IVE is developed in dialogue with the architects Samir Bantal and Rem Koolhaas. Their years of research into recent developments in rural areas form the starting point of an exhibition in which various makers reflect on our current way of life and formulate perspectives for the future.
