Negative Space is an artist residency at De School which revolves around the modular artworks by Boris Acket, Nick Verstand, Salvador Breed, Marcel Smit and Poul Holleman. Their installations and performances investigate the perception of space as a medium. On show from 7.12.2019 until 29.12.2019
Negative Space alludes to the most invisible natural element : Ma ; the void that exists between all things. By using space in a hyperconscious way, Negative Space explores new perspectives on the way people see, hear and feel space. During their residency the collective is joined by a range of artists, creating compositions and performances within this audiovisual environment.
Each week the artist collective explores various spatial setups, varying light and spatial sound arrangements, creating evolving experiences of the space as the residency progresses. The modular installation consists of an array of light pillars, lasers, and a multi speaker system powered by 4DSOUND. Read more about the residency on our blog
The sound system is sponsored by THINK AV.
Negative Space can be visited during club nights. Entry fee and house rules apply.

Club Substance is a new performance work by Natalia Jordanova and Walter Götsch. It functions as an orchestra of a soundscape, spoken narrative, bodies, objects and light.
We use the space of De School as a territory to enact an imagined fiction – a variable of a stateless society where movement becomes a tool. Agents are executing a framed non-choreographed actions to map out an alternative possibility to inhabit a place, actualise oneself and ultimately, relate to others through a social dance and under the gaze of the other(s).
Entropy transforms through synchron into self-reinforced velocity.
Electric Relaxation At The Belleville House
Electric Relaxation At The Belleville House is a site-specific installation by Farida Sedoc inviting the people to actively CHILL and ZONE out to the grassroots piece on ground level in the space. The work refers to the legacy of black music, tracing the cultural roots by connecting and creating a communal environment to engage and hang out with each other.
About the project:
UNTIL THE SUNRISE, LET’S MAKE A PLACE TO GATHER #1 and #2
Dealing with the notion of club culture and late night parties, the collaboration between De School and the Sandberg Instituut questions the notion of a party as a space of social interaction where the codes of the outside world are challenged. The existential dimension of the contemporary social gathering, underpinned by techno beats, is urgently and immediately inscribed in us. But we now live in an era where the informal and joyous modality of the party became institutionalised. The club fonctions as a autonomous structure, with its own rules, languages, facilities. Beyond a venue, it becomes a social structure, officializing the ecstatic place of the party in society, facilitating a community of experience through collective production.
