Rossen, Daisy Smith, Tobias Thaens, Joppe Venema, Katie Watchorn, and Leah Zhang.

Especially for Woonhuis, permanent art works have been installed by Nina Canell, Chris Evans, Tild Greene, Philipp Gufler, Frieder Haller, Cecilia Bjartmar Hylta, Clémence de La Tour du Pin, Brianna Leatherbury, and Marina Pinsky.

Also featuring: Vita Soul Wilmerings première of Lake Bottom Cinema; Minne Kersten, Fabulator (from Welcome Stranger); music video Heresy by echo + seashell (Henna Hyvärinen and Susan Kooi) feat. Torus by Sophie Lee.

The festive opening of Woonhuis takes place Wednesday May 31st, 5-7pm.
