Foundation Gerrit Komrij House


Besides a work studio and a creative platform, Komrijk is also a knowledge centre and meeting place. We organize symposia, international exchanges, exhibitions and offer space for research and access to over 20.000 books in our library. An unique place where art, craftsmanship and new techniques come together. In addition we provide a platform in Amsterdam through a variety of events, where a selection of the residency artists are offered a place to exhibit.
