The Oude Kerk is a national monument and a place for contemporary art in the oldest building in Amsterdam, in the middle of the historic city centre. Commissioned by Oude Kerk, artists create monumental new work that can only be seen here once. The art installations explore the acoustics of the building, play with the perception of the space or illuminate stories from the centuries-old history of the place in new ways. In its public programme Oude Kerk invites both young and established musicians and performers to create new work reflecting on the interplay between the art installations and heritage.
Today’s art: tomorrow’s heritage.
