The exhibition Here is Where We Meet by Aimée Zito Lema was supposed to open in April. Due to the measures surrounding COVID-19, an official opening is not possible. In the past three years, Zito Lema has investigated two conflict situations of which the Oude Kerk forms the centre: the Beeldenstorm (roughly: ‘image storm’) of 1566 and the recent resistance to a red stained glass window. The traces left behind by both conflicts form the starting point for Zito Lema’s new work, which consists of photography, sculptures, textile works, poetry and an installation with basins.
From 15 April, you can also see the exhibition by booking a walk through the church. Book a time slot here. Entrance is free, donations are welcome.
A collection of poems based on the legal correspondence about the red stained glass is available in the museum shop of the Oude Kerk.
