29 Jun 2013 Damn Food Waste

Expand Article

In The Netherlands we throw away almost one third of our food. Mostly it’s food that farmers can’t sell because it doesn’t meet consumers requirements, food that passed the Best Before date and is thrown away in supermarkets. On June 29 Damn Food Waste will cook a free, hot, delicious lunch made out of food that otherwise would have been wasted. Join the lunch between 12:00-16:00 o'clock at the Museumsquare in Amsterdam.


Amsterdam Village Company supports this project as all our locations aim for minimizing food waste. Join the Facebook event of Damn Food Waste if you are planning to be there.



10 Sep 2013 Exhibition Barbara Broekman

Expand Article

In the Lobby of Hotel Arena, artist Barbara Broekman exposes her work. In her work, Barbara Broekman goes for a direct confrontation wih the senses. The large formats, deep colours, the suggestion of movement and touchability of the materials evoke a sensual experience. Stimulate, seduce, challenge people to look: that is what Barbara Broekman's work aims at. Her work is included in the collection of the Amsterdam Stedelijk Museum, the Tilburg Textile Museum and various corporate collections.

From April 2014, new work of Barbara Broekman is exposed in Lobby 1 of Hotel Arena. The work 'Diary I' contains more than 5.000 separate images. All have been collected in Barbara Broekman's career as a professional artist. The images vary from personal photographs to news photos, advertorials in magazines and motives and patterns found in daily-life-material as tablecloth and wallpaper. Each of them has been a source of inspiration and literally been used in a work of Barbara's hand.

Take a look on her website for more information.

6 Apr 2013 PUP Exhibition

Expand Article

PUP proudly presents the fourth exhibition in collaboration with Furthur Labelz at Hotel Arena on Saturday the 6th of April 2013.

GROWING BETWEEN SPACES is the title of this Furthur Labelz group exhibition, representing international artists of multiple disciplines. All the works interpret and investigate the themes of space, time, distance and growth; themes, which are both big as they are small, and layered as they are empty: just as life itself. Placed in the setting of a hotel - which is both a temporal home and an anonymous space; a transitional space between being far away and back home - Furthur Labelz plays with the notion of moving between spaces and what the gap between those spaces can mean. Is it an empty space? Is it filled with light and laughter, or with darkness and regret? Do the temporary beds hold dreams or nightmares? Does the desire for adventure dominate, or is it the longing for a place called home? When confronting the artists with questions about their work in this setting, it seems that we are often between spaces, growing, and that at that moment both sides of the coin exist most strongly. Most of all, “Growing Between Spaces” is being in a state of movement. Yes, we are somewhere, but we're already halfway gone, reaching for what lies ahead.
