Walden Affairs is a project space for the presentation, research and production of contemporary art. It is a collaborative project by visual artist Joost Nieuwenburg and curator Mischa Poppe and started off in 2009. The initiative is located in a 19th century canal house and has three stores of exhibition space. Here we program a wide variety of activities for the reception, participation and reflection of art: exhibitions, performances, lectures, screenings, informal meetings and other events.
With our initiative we focus on contemporary art in the broadest sense. We imagine our initiative as a space that – as a window to the world - offers room for work that helps to sharpen our perception of physical, mental and imaginary realities.
