The Amsterdam City Council (the gemeenteraad) has voted in favour of the new zoning plan for Parnassusweg 220. This positive decision marks a major step forward towards the establishment of the new museum for contemporary art in Amsterdam.
The Hartwig Art Foundation will be renting the former courthouse from the municipality. In the coming years, we will be making considerable investments from our own resources to renovate and extend the monumental building in order to bring it to the highest standards of sustainability, accessibility and design. This ambitious project represents a long-term commitment of the foundation to the city to provide a permanent space dedicated to the research, production and presentation of contemporary visual art, time-based art and future art forms in Amsterdam.
