@droog remains closed until further notice

Dear visitor,

The government announced on the 14th of January that all culinary establishments will have to remain closed until further notice. Of course we were very eager to welcome you back, but it appears our re-meeting is going to be pushed back for a few more days.

Please keep an eye out on our social media channels and website for more updates, and hopefully we can bring you great news soon!

In the meantime: enjoy your first few weeks of the year!

Our best,

Team @droog

The exhibition The World As We Don’t Know It has ended

January the 12th marked the last day of the exhibition The World As We Don’t Know It in the gallery space of @droog.

We thank all 20 international artists who shared their visions on the climate crisis. All of them pleaded for different relationships between humankind and the earth. Now that the exhibition has come to a close, this theme and the impact of their work will continue for many more years to come: Finding a more modest role for humans on this earth and a closer relationship between ecology and ethics.

Have you missed the exhibition, and would you still like to know more about it? Read more in this article by The Parool.

Stay tuned for next projects taking place @droog…

Join an Online Artist Talk with Embassy of the North Sea

As part of the program of the exhibition The World As We Don’t Know It, the Embassy of the North Sea and MUST cordially invite you to a participatory meeting about the Hollandse Kust West wind farm, one of the many wind farms that the Dutch government wants to build in the North Sea in the coming years. With a multidisciplinary team, the Embassy is working on radical perspectives on the underwater world in a wind farm. Their aim is to make an alternative entry for the tender ‘Windmill Park Hollandse Kust West’. The term for submitting to this tender (a project that is open to input from various parties) closes in April 2022. Your input during this participation event is highly appreciated and can still be processed!

Research team wind farm tender
The team working on the wind farm tender consists of landscape architect Ziega van de Berg, sociologist Darko Lagunas, aquatic ecologist Maarten Erich, architect Bruno Vermeersch, advisor Susan Arts, Halima Tantawy, student of International Land and Water Management and Thijs Middeldorp from the Embassy. Based on the premise that the sea and marine life are independent entities, the team investigates and listens to the diverse human and more than human interests that play a role in wind farms.

The World As We Don’t Know it @droog
This event is part of the programme of the exhibition The World as We Don’t Know It, which would have been on view until January 12, 2022 in the [email protected], but is now closed due to lockdown. In this exhibition, curated by Renny Ramakers, 20 international artists share their vision of the climate crisis. Landscape architect Ziega van den Berk participates on behalf of the Embassy of the North Sea with her project Doggerland, The Breeding Ground of the North Sea (2020). She proposes a design for a wind farm in which she takes existing landscape and marine life into account. From the scale of the entire Dogger landscape to that of the windmills, all design choices focus on fostering diverse and rich marine life.

We volgen de getuigenverklaringen van het menselijke en mensachtige personeel. Ze vertellen over hun werkzaamheden en de vreemde objecten in de ruimtes van het schip, over hun twijfels over elkaar en zichzelf.

Design Your Own Revolution

On November 11, the program Power to the Planet! by Studio Zeitgeist will start. Participants in this program jointly design a series of alternative revolutions. Each of these revolutions has a new pattern of values: what is of value is valued again. Please join. It is time for a new social order and that requires new words, sounds and actions! It’s time for revolution. It’s time  for “the world as we don’t know it!”

On Thursday evening, November 11, Studio Zeitgiest will put three revolutions in the spotlight with REVOLUTION RISING. Speakers include politician Mei Li Vos and artist Tinkebell.

On Friday 12 and Saturday 13 November, small teams in the REVOLUTION LAB will work on the words, ideas, sounds and actions of their own dreamed new order. You can sign up for a specific group with its own start time.

The alternative revolutions have a color and a thematic starting point. Its precise interpretation depends entirely on you as a revolutionary thinker and doer.

30 October: Film Screening + Artist Talk

Join us for a film screening and behind-the-scenes artist talk with Lonnie van Brummelen, Siebren de Haan and Tolin Erwin Alexander.

Date: Saturday the 30th of October
Time: from 17:00 – 19:00 hrs
Price: €5

About the Film

Stones Have Laws (Dee Sitonu a Weti) is an immersive initiation into the life of a Maroon community in the former Dutch colony of Suriname. Combining stories of African ancestral traditions and escaped slavery with enacted contemporary rituals, the film explores how the community’s powerful ties to the land have become endangered as industries threaten to devastate the region through deforestation and mining.

The project was initiated by Dutch artists Lonnie van Brummelen and Siebren de Haan, and developed in collaboration with the Surinamese theater maker Tolin Erwin Alexander, himself Okanisi Maroon. The three of them closely involved the Maroon community in the development of the film, which was made using an experimental process of collective scripting. The result is a unique cinematic form that bridges filmmaking, poetry and theatre.

After the screening, the makers will tell their story of creating the film.

This event is part of the exhibition The World As We Don’t Know It, on view in the [email protected] In this exhibition, 20 international artists share their vision on the climate crisis. The exhibition is on show until 12 January 2022.

The World As We Don’t Know It – A New Bond Between Humans and Earth

From 24 September 2021 till 12 January 2022 in the [email protected]


Good news: the exhibition The World As We Don’t Know It is still on view in our gallery, by appointment only. To book a visit, please send an email to [email protected] with your preferred date and time.

Two people maximum per visit.

Up to and including Wednesday the 12th of January!

​What if animals, plants and other living creatures had the same rights as humans, or if rivers and mountains could sue us for the pollution we cause? What if the needs of non-human life in the North Sea were gauged before erecting windmills there? Or if we listened to children who bluntly state that eating lamb is tantamount to slaughtering a baby? 

Climate crisis
In this exhibition, 20 international artists share their visions of the climate crisis. All of them plead for a different relationship between humankind and the earth, a different way of organising society. Two closely interwoven lines of thought form the leitmotif of the exhibition: a more modest role for humans on this earth and a closer relationship between ecology and ethics. ‘Let’s stop talking about a climate crisis; we should be talking about a crisis of humanity,’ says the Finnish artist Terike Haapoja.​

“Let’s stop talking about the climate crisis: we need to talk about a crisis of humanity.”

– Terike Haapoja and Laura Gustafsson on the film Becoming
