For over 30 years, Stichting Centrum Beeldende Kunst Zuidoost (Foundation Centre for Visual Arts Southeast) is the place to be for contemporary art with multicultural accent, that brings art to the general public by exhibitions, a collection of rental art, art education, artist-in-residence, commissions, and debates. The programme is based on current developments in society. Come by sometime and see for yourself! Entrance is always free.
Centrum Beeldende Kunst Zuidoost is “the shortest way to art of today with inspiration from all over the world.” At CBK you will find art that reflects on current developments in society, and in which the intercultural perspective always plays an important role. Art for all ages where CBK tries to connect, enrich, renew and expand.
CBK assesses artistic quality through the usual criteria such as authenticity, expression and use of materials. The dichotomy of Western and non-Western art is a distinction that is behind us. Also in the visual arts, the migration society has led to transnational design with cultural connotations that refer to more than a white Dutch heritage. The intercultural society of city district southeast – where CBK Zuidoost is located – is a continuous source of inspiration.
