Architectural Healing: Sculptors transform former prison
Curator-led tour by Bastiaan Gribling

*** Online registrations are closed. You can still join the event and pay with cash directly at the venue ***


For more than a century, De Koepel (the Dome) of Haarlem served as a prison. The building is conceived as a ‘panopticum’, with a circular plan, designed to exert a maximum of control.
Before the old prison gets a new life as a university and cultural centre, 40 artists with different backgrounds respond with sculptures, installations and performances to the building, its history and the transformation to its new destination. They explore new possibilities for this monumental heritage under the motto ‘Architectural Healing’.

14.00 – 15.30 interactive curator led tour through the exhibition with Curator Bastiaan Gribling, owner of Cityscapes Foundation
16.00 – 17.30 networking and showroom in Restaurant Zuidam
