SCHUNCK is proud to present its programme for the forthcoming 2016/2017 season. The programme offers a miscellany of exhibitions, presentations, educational activities and performances in the field of visual art, literature, architecture and music & dance. SCHUNCK aims to make you stop and think. “SCHUNCK helps embellish your life. SCHUNCK adds colour to your day”.
SCHUNCK is always aiming to go that one step further. With this in mind, SCHUNCK actively encourages the involvement of visitors in its exhibitions on modernism, heritage and urban culture. “We live in an age of radicalism and extremism. Being ‘anti’ has become the norm. If so, what are we ‘pro’? Is there a middle-way? Artists give voice to what’s at play beneath the surface. Often, they adopt an extreme standpoint in relation to the world. It’s precisely because of this that these artists and SCHUNCK are helping to redefine the issues and put them in the public arena”, says Lene ter Haar, head of presentations, in reference to SCHUNCK’s programme of events.
SCHUNCK’s new programme goes one step further than the exhibitions alone. Likewise, SCHUNCK Libraries and SCHUNCK Music & Dance are responsible for putting together a varied educational programme, with lessons, training courses, performances, workshops and lectures. With its recently refurbished library in the Glaspaleis and a major expansion of digital products and programmes, SCHUNCK is now able to offer a wide range of activities for those who want to enrich their lives or simply enjoy the moment. “We want to bring colour to the lives of the people of Heerlen and to add colour to talent! That’s what we espouse”, explains Kor Bonnema, director of SCHUNCK.
The highlights of the 2016-2017 programme include: an exhibition on the Parkstad Limburg Prize in collaboration with the provincial art foundation, SPLK (from Dec 2016 to March 2017); the Paint It Soft exhibition in the spring/summer of 2017; and the current Spielerei exhibition. Various partnerships with Eureigonal initiatives, such EAP, Schrittmacher and the Dutch Mountain Film Festival also add a touch of élan to the proceedings.
