Review Creative Boom

Wanna have creative inspiration in Amsterdam?
Check out this blog, we're at number 4 :-)

"There are many big art museums in Amsterdam (and we’ll get to those in a second), but if you’re interested in contemporary art then you’ll also want to check out some of the hipper independent galleries. And you don’t get much cooler than KochxBos.  
Although it’s a tiny place, you can feel the spirit of cutting-edge art flow through you as you peruse some pretty amazing artwork."

Sarah Maple
Power to the People?

#PowerToThePeople? #KeepOneShareOne

Latest news & pictures on Instagram kochxbos and facebook.com/kochxbos.gallery.amsterdam

We invite you to take part in a radical get together where you can share your positivity and revolutionary ideas in collaboration with Sarah Maple.

The gallery will become an inclusive space for debate, creation and interaction between you, your friends and the artist in residence. Bring along your good vibes and wildest ideas.

Sarah worked two weeks in our gallery, the space turned into a bustling meeting place where many people got together and shared their (revolutionary) ideas.

Through the theme of “Power to the people?” we encouraged interaction between the artist and the visitors, spontaneous creativity, and lively debates that will hopefully lead to a new, positive art movement which we will all be a part of.  

The various themes of the exhibition we were censorship and freedom of expression (‘Read my lips', 'Your opinion is wrong’), the question of nationalism vs. the refugee crisis  (‘Go Home’ and ‘England's Glory’) as well as sexism and misogyny (‘Do not be a Dick with your Dick’).


Article in Parool newspaper (Dutch)


Beginning February 1st, the exhibition started developing through works of art created on a daily basis. In addition to producing new work, artists such as  Pipsqueakwashere, Bethany de Forest and Roos van der Vliet were open to collaboration. Resulting in a huge street art wall, portraits and paintings. Interviews and discussions were held and our gallery space welcomed a many visitors’ ideas from all over the world. 

Positive art movement - how? We need you!

-  Sarah will be available Monday through Saturday from 12:00 to 16:00  (gallery is open until 18:00 excl. Sundays). Come and join us, share inspirations, ideas and thoughts. 

Keep One, Share One: There were (and still are) several posters, buttons and stickers available. Take two—one for yourself and one to post on the street, or give away to a friend or a stranger.

- Every day Sarah created political postcards and window-statements in response to a current news item, which will be exposed in the gallery and be posted online.
