We’d like to thank the municipality of The Hague for compensating the cultural sector / artists initiatives for the financial setbacks due to the pandemic. We have received the letter confirming that our rent will be discounted for 8 months of 2020. This is deeply appreciated as it encourages our work and creates an opportunity for improving our space and our infrastructure.
A big THANK YOU from the Quartair / Stichting B141!
Between 2019 and 2020 photographer Andre Smits visited Quartair to photograph our artists in their natural habitat and add them to the ever growing project Artist In The World. The series includes Blanka de Bruyn, Pietertje van Splunter, Ludmila Rodrigues, Geeske Harting, Jessy Rahman, Thom Vink, Mike Rijnierse, Marlies Adriaanse and Dana LaMonda, among the 5327 (and counting) artists from around the globe. Check our pictures below:
In the hit single from 1981 Mick Jones of UK band The Clash infects us with an ear-worm: “If I go there will be trouble, if I stay it will be double”. Is the song really about an unhappy love story, or is the question pressed by the punk rocker hinting to something else?
This exhibition starts as an anthropological investigation and ends in a series of playful rituals engaging with our senses through song and food. Questions around identity and migration are viewed through the individual experiences of members of the international artist community in The Hague. Tensions experienced while living in transition between places and cultures serve as fuel for three new works.

Special events: 29 May | 21:00 – 23:00 online Karaoke party with Matteo Marangoni + Davide Tidoni 10 June | 19:00 online cooking workshop with Wen Chin Fu
Davide Tidoni and Matteo Marangoni in Strangers in Karaoke address the challenge of becoming familiar with a foreign culture while confronting negative stereotypes.

Wen Chin Fu in Nederlands Gastronomisch Inburgeringsexamen responds
to her experience with the process of acquiring Dutch nationality by
imagining an immigration test over food culture in The Netherlands.
