The Oude Kerk is a place for contemporary art and Amsterdam's oldest building.

What we do
Since 1951, the Oude Kerk has been committed to maintaining the building and providing meaningful access to a diverse audience. Since the completion of the restoration in 2013, we have been developing our own programming in which contemporary art and music establish a relationship with heritage. So you will find seven centuries of history in the monumental building and look at the world around us through the eyes of artists past and present.

Today's art is tomorrow's heritage

Vision: Through the interplay between the centuries-old building, in which city and people reflect themselves, and contemporary art, the Oude Kerk aims to stimulate an exchange of ideas about the world around us and to (re)define changing values together.

What is the significance of the Oude Kerk today?

Mission: By bringing together contemporary art and heritage, the Oude Kerk adds new pages to our (art) history and exchanges wonder and reflection with a pluralistic audience.
