De Fabriek Eindhoven Art and activism since the 1980s

15:30 - 17:00
conversation organised by Agents of Change

In 1980 a group of about 40 artists squatted a former Mignot cigarette factory in Eindhoven. They were determined to have space where to create and experiment with new forms of art: performance, video, installations... They were all engaged with the same aim: keep doing things as long as possible , giving complete freedom to the artistic process of creation. De Fabriek is still going on, based on the same principles. 

Would you like to know more about one of the oldest artists-run initiatives in The Netherlands? We have invited some former and current members to have an open conversation illustrated with a curated selection of images. How did they do it? What did change on the road? 

Location: Room 6 in The 1980s exhibition in the museum's old building.
Entrance to the museum is free from 3 pm and you can join this conversation for free as well.
