DESCRIPTION

De Appel is an internationally oriented arts centre in the centre of Amsterdam. Since it was founded in 1975 it has served as a leading platform for research and the presentation of contemporary art. 

De Appel has a programme of exhibitions and performances by visual artists, choreographers and theatre directors. In addition, under the title Appel on the side, it organizes a very broad programme of events, ranging from introductory talks to conferences lasting several days. As a publisher, de Appel publishes artist books and monographs, periodicals and anthologies of essays. 

De Appel has organized the eight-month Curatorial Programme since 1994. During this exploratory process, young curators from different parts of the world are taught a range of skills and offered various experiences which can be used as a source for their further professional career. The programme comprises theory lessons, workshops, excursions, assignments and educational confrontations. The thematic focus is on “context-responsive curating” and the presentation of art in the public space.
