Constant 1 0 1 on Voordekunst!

Our Constant 1 0 1 campaign on is live! From May 2021, we will celebrate that Constant was born 101 years ago. Together with contemporary artists, makers, writers and thinkers, we investigate the significance of Constant's legacy and ideas today. More than 25 special projects with more than 40 partners are lined up!

In 2021, Fondation Constant will celebrate the fact that visual artist Constant Nieuwenhuys (1920-2005), known as Constant, was born 101 years ago. We will do this with the project Constant 1 0 1. Where a centennial stands for a complete 100 years that are looked back on, 101 represents the transition to the next 100 years. We are looking ahead.

In the period from May 2021 to April 2022, Fondation Constant develops a multidisciplinary program of projects in collaboration with Dutch museums, presentation institutions, archives, individual makers and / or companies and educational institutes. These projects are rooted in the Dutch cultural environment, but also strongly linked to the international discourse. Artists from different disciplines produce new work and projects in relation to visual artist Constant Nieuwenhuys (1920-2005).

The aim of Constant 1 0 1 is to shed light on the connection that exists between cultural heritage and contemporary makers, between history and current events. We pass Constant's ideas on to the future generation; with new perspectives, new work, new partners, new audiences and perhaps new hope.

We could really use your support for this ambitious project!
