introducing (nelly&)theo van doesburg foundations’ publicart work programme
since 1987 the theo van doesburg foundation strives to realise visual art projects and initiate formats that generate positions and commissions for emerging- and early career artists that studied or resided in amsterdam. based on the placemaking terrain of sluisbuurt in amsterdam since 2011, the foundation collaborates with artists to develop scenarios for different public art works in the neighbourhood currently still under construction. parallel to the building process a public programme introduces neighbours, property developers, investors and other stakeholders with ideas on six themes that are key to the identity of the new neighbourhood sluisbuurt.
