The Balcony

Former exhibition space - Herenstraat 14, The Hague (NL)




The vitrine space was part of Willem Bouman & Zn. building, a violin shop and atelier. Here, The Balcony presented artists whose practice engaged with the vitrine, in relation to the public space and its 24/7 visibility.

The intuition leading the space was to present non-The Hague based artists - in priority, and to introduce their practice within the cultural context of the city.

The vitrine operated between March 2018 and December 2020.





Susan Bites

Former studio & project space - Laan van NOI, 125, The Hague (NL)




Susan Bites was the former studio of the members of the collective and hosted exhibitions in the basement rooms.

The project space operated between February 2019 and March 2021.
