29.03 Teken or Leave it: Workshop by Candela Murillo

TOL Workshop: an exploration of movement and materials with Candela Murillo
29.03.2023, 19:00-22:00h

During this workshop Candela will lead us through a playful exploration of the interaction between movement and materials. What effect does physically holding a hard object, in contrast to spreading powder or moving around liquid, have on a creative process? What if it is not only your hand that is responsible for the creation of an image, but a foot or an entire body? Participants will experience how all kinds of bodies can be used in different ways to leave behind images and creations.

Please bring old clothes that can get dirty.

We have only 15 spots for this workshop so please reserve your spot with by Tuesday March 28th, 2023.

Cost: €10 for a drop-in workshop, or €8,50 when you purchase a 10x workshop punchcard. If you cannot pay but would still like to attend, please contact to hear about our sliding scale options. Also check our website for sliding scales:

This workshop is part of our residency project: Humanji.

05.03. Finissage Untold Unfold

UNTOLD-UNFOLD Finissage 15:00u – 17:00u
Met muziek van Roelof Ruis.

Kom voor een drankje op de laatste dag van de expositie Untold – Unfold.
Met werk van Meli Kuhn, Marianne Lammersen & Candela Murillo.

In de tentoonstelling UNTOLD – UNFOLD reageerden de drie kunstenaars Meli Kuhn, Marianne Lammersen en Candela Murillo via hun werk op een woelige wereld die voortdurend aan verandering onderhevig is. Vertrekpunt is de constante zoektocht binnen in jezelf naar een verhouding tot deze wereld. Het gebeurt niet dáár, maar hier. Niet in snelheid, maar in vertraging. Niet in onrust, maar in stilte.

Sculpturen, performance, film, schilderijen – de ruimte wordt via verschillende media betast. De beelden onderzoeken, zonder te vinden of concluderen. Zij komen voort uit verlangens, fantasieën, nog onduidelijk en onbepaald, aftastend en groeiend. De werken bieden een alternatieve ervaring van een leven en wereld waar de ratio te vaak de overhand heeft. In die wereld waar de buitenkant, de eerste indruk, de schreeuw, het (harde) uitgesproken woord, de duiding en gevestigde structuur geregeld een platte ervaring voorschotelt, zoeken zij naar manieren hun omgeving van binnenuit te begrijpen. Van analyse en ontleding, tot vlucht en verstilling.

In plaats van naar buiten, kijken we in UNTOLD – UNFOLD eerst naar binnen

Teken Or Leave It Workshop by Faria van Creij-Callender

The workshop will be on 01.03.2023 from 19:00-22:00.

Faria van Creij-Callender (1998) is a surrealist painter who’s focusses on a playful approach to duality. She is currently graduating from the Royal Academy of Fine Arts. Symbolism, the past and the present and layering which connect to her mixed background, often emerge in her compositions.

The workshop:
Faria’s style is based on late Renaissance and Baroque influences which are then placed in contemporary situations and will be reflected in the workshop itself. Flower bouquets will be used as a still life to either draw realistically, or/and can be completely pulled apart to create your own compositions. There is possibility to get tips on how to compose a drawing as lifelike as possible, or to completely dive into your own flower world.

Sign up for the workshop by sending an e-mail to

The cost to participate in the workshop are €10 each. For anyone who cannot pay this entry to the workshop is free. See here for general info about Teken Or Leave It and other dates

Teken or Leave It: Mapping Your World

Within the research theme Spreading Seeds: Building Worlds in the Ashes of the Apocalypse we will think about cards during this open drawing evening of Teken or Leave It. How do maps shape our reality and how do they affect how we navigate through our lives? Which places do we see and not see? Who decides what belongs to whom on the map? What colonial meanings are associated with maps? Within Fantasy, a map is usually the starting point to build a world of characters and stories. So during this open draw evening you can make your own map of your own world, body or mind, or make a map of places that have often been made invisible or of worlds that doesn’t yet exist.

Everyone is welcome to join in or draw their own thing! So come on Wednesday evening September 28 from 19:00-21:00.

31 August 2022

Teken or Leave It: Play as Resistance

After the summer break we will continue drawing within the research theme Spreading Seeds: Building Worlds in the Ashes of the Apocalypse. The first Teken or Leave It will be an open draw evening. We are going to get inspired by the recent event in the Schuur Haarlem with the dragking performances by @latinx_charm and @luciansquid from House of LøstBois in collaboration with the Haarlem Town Queers. During the meeting we will look back at these performances and see how we can playfully resist, try our own things and reinvent ourselves by drawing.

Everyone is welcome to join in drawing their own thing! So come Wednesday evening 14 September from 19:00-21:00.

1 August 2022

Teken or Leave It: Reflections on World Building

During the next open draw evening of Teken or Leave It on Wednesday 22 June, we will sit together in the exhibition space to reflect on the current exhibition ULTIMATUM (4horsemen) while drawing. During the Stripdagen Haarlem 2022 and in this exhibition the theme of world building is central. Which worlds were created by the 4horsemen? What do we see on the walls? And which worlds would we build ourselves? Together we will work through speculative fiction to build on the traces left behind by the 4horsemen.

“It matters what matters we use to think over matters with; it matters what stories we tell to tell other stories with; it matters what knots knot knots, what thoughts think thoughts, what descriptions describe descriptions, what ties tie ties. It matters what stories make worlds, what worlds make stories.”

Donna J. Haraway, Staying with the Troube; Making Kin in the Chthulucene

So come draw with us next Wednesday, June 22 from 19:00-22:00 during Teken or Leave It at Nieuwe Vide.

Cineclub at Houtnacht 2022

Nieuwe Vide presents the films Pretty Pictures by Bernardo Zanotta en Mother Earth’s inner organs by Ana Bravo Pérez on June 18, from 18:00-23:59 at Houtnacht.

In his film Pretty Pictures, the Brazilian artist Bernardo Zanotta shows the gap between beautiful images and their production. He recorded the ‘beautiful images’ in a semi-automatic greenhouse in the Dutch countryside. Indoors, bromeliads are grown artificially, a plant species that comes from Brazil and is produced and prepared for sale here in the Netherlands.

Coal and hammocks are the setting for the film Mother Earth’s inner organs by Colombian artist Ana Bravo Pérez. This film installation is about the extraction of coal in Colombia and the consequences for the local communities in La Guajira and industries in the Netherlands and the rest of the world.

Teken or Leave It: Workshops ‘Tata State of Mind’

Would you like to learn how to capture your opinion in one image? Or would you like to be able to tell ‘the story, behind the story’ in several drawings?

Drawing journalist Eva Hilhorst and cartoonist TRIK have set up a Tata State of Mind project together, in which they want to arrive at a nuanced picture of Tata Steel by means of drawing workshops. They also would like to ask participants of ‘Teken or Leave It’ to respond to the current situation.

During TRIK’s workshop on Wednesday evening 25 May, the emphasis is on capturing the (Tata) situation in one image. In the workshop of Eva Hilhorst on June 8, you will learn how to tell a more extensive story based on multiple images.

You can of course take your result home with you. But you can also hang it in the ULTIMATUM (4horsemen) exhibition, which will be shown at Nieuwe Vide during the Stripdagen Haarlem. So come May 25th and/or June 8th from 19:00-20:30 to Teken or Leave It Workshops at Nieuwe Vide. After that there is still the opportunity to draw until 22:00.

NRC reaction

NRC Handelsblad publiceerde op 31 oktober 2020 een schokkend artikel over verdenkingen van ernstig seksueel grensoverschrijdend gedrag, racisme en geweld binnen de beeldende kunstsector. We zijn geschokt en verdrietig over de inhoud van dit artikel, en onze gedachten gaan uit naar alle mensen die te maken hebben gehad met dit (met name seksueel) geweld. We hebben bewondering voor hun moed om met deze verhalen naar buiten te komen.

De betreffende persoon heeft in 2013 meegewerkt aan een expositiereeks bij Nieuwe Vide. Met de kennis van nu betreuren wij het enorm dat hem hierdoor destijds een podium is gegeven voor zijn beeldend werk. Binnen Nieuwe Vide streven we naar een veilige en prettige werkomgeving, waarin absoluut geen plaats of podium is voor welk grensoverschrijdend gedrag dan ook. Wij willen bijdragen aan een beeldende kunstsector waarin dergelijk gedrag niet getolereerd of genegeerd wordt, en er tijdig wordt gesignaleerd en juist wordt gehandeld wanneer dit het geval is. Mensen die behoefte voelen om een verhaal of ervaring met ons te delen zijn altijd welkom om contact op te nemen of langs te komen, of kunnen een melding doen via

Als organisatie hebben we de verantwoordelijkheid om een ruimte te scheppen waar kunstenaar, medewerker, student, bezoeker en studiomaker zich veilig voelen. Met het huidige team werken we actief aan het doorbreken van de patriarchale structuren, zowel binnen het programma als in de werkwijze. Dit doen we door respectvol met elkaar om te gaan en zorgvuldig na te denken over met wie we samenwerken. Door ook kritisch te zijn op ons eigen doen en laten. Zo werken we met zijn allen aan een beter, inclusiever en positief kunstklimaat.

Nieuwe Vide online

Nieuwe Vide has had to close its doors because of Covid-19. But that doesn’t mean that we aren’t going to do anything in these uncertain times. We will show online what Nieuwe Vide has to offer when it comes to art, culture and political engagement.

The latest edition of Nieuwe Vide’s Journal of Humanity with the theme Staging the Absurd is now available online for free. Absurdism is central to Nieuwe Vide’s program of 2020. We relate the absurdism of current international politics and the role that online platforms such as Facebook, Twitter and Youtube play in spreading ‘news’ to the Absurdist Theater from the beginning of the twentieth century. After all, this form of theater emerged in a period of social and political instability, which has many characteristics of our current situation. This issue contains contributions from Michiel Westbeek, Dorothy Hunter, Kalib Batta and Eric Peter.

There will also be an Online Zine as a result of the exhibition TMI: searching for truth in the post-truth era. This exhibition is temporarily canceled due to Covid-19. Still, in these uncertain times, when there is an abundance of information about the Corona virus and it is difficult to distinguish fact from fiction, we think it is important to give attention to this topic. The artists Alexandra Hunts, belit sağ, Lyubov Matyunina and Toon Fibbe show in the Online Zine how they deal with the changing information landscape and the constant flow of (unreliable) information and how they resist it.

We are also proud to present Nieuwe Vide Radio. In this podcast, curator Liesbeth Visee and project coordinator Ytje Veenstra interview studio artists and artists from the Nieuwe Vide network about their art practice.

Finally, Nieuwe Vide gives you a weekly recipe on Wednesday to make a delicious vegetarian soup. This is to compensate for our Soup Corner every Wednesday afternoon, which is now canceled.

Also check @tekenorleaveit on Instagram. This open drawing evening is every other week at Nieuwe Vide, but now you can participate in the online version. The upcoming online version is April 1st at 19.00.

Keep an eye on our website and social media for the latest online activities!
