Five artists, all working in Amsterdam Zuidoost, present their work at CBK Zuidoost. A diversity of disciplines, techniques and themes, with the common denominator being a firm look at identity and one’s own history.
The arts field in the Bijlmer is changing. More and more artists are finding their way to this side of the city, like our participating artists Rossel Chaslie, Maikel Deekman, Janne Igbuwe, Yazan Maksoud en Roosje Verschoor. This number will continue to grow in the coming years, partly due to the increasing number of housing projects in our district. Old office buildings have to make way for this. Before these buildings are demolished, they are temporarily empty.
It is precisely in these temporary places that new opportunities arise for artists, as a result of which the cultural ecosystem will continue to expand. With the exhibition series Local Heroes, CBK Zuidoost stimulates the local art climate in Amsterdam Zuidoost.
