Kunsthal Rotterdam Calder Reloaded, Kunsthal Rotterdam, 2020-2021
The following text will be translated into English as soon as possible:
De Amerikaanse beeldhouwer Alexander Calder (1868 - 1976) was gefascineerd door beweging en voegde dynamiek toe aan de tot dan toe statische beeldhouwkunst. Het vooruitstrevende en experimentele karakter van zijn werk heeft grote invloed gehad op de ontwikkelingen binnen de beeldende kunst en was en is een inspiratie voor tijdgenoten en voor de generaties kunstenaars na hem. De Kunsthal organiseert in samenwerking met de Calder Foundation de tentoonstelling Calder Reloaded, waarin de invloed van Calder op de hedendaagse kunst centraal staat. Circa vijfentwintig werken van Alexander Calder worden getoond naast werken van tien toonaangevende kunstenaars die zich door hem hebben laten inspireren, waaronder Olafur Eliasson, Ernesto Neto, Sarah Sze, Roman Signer en Carsten Nicolai.

De Turing Foundation draagt € 50.000 bij aan deze tentoonstelling, die van 17 oktober 2020 tot 28 februari 2021 te zien zal zijn

FOAM Amsterdam "Negative Beauty", FOAM, Amsterdam, 2020-2021
In autumn 2020 FOAM is organising an exhibition on the origins, function and value of photographic negatives. In recent decades digitisation has brought an end to the era of 'old-fashioned' photography, with final prints based on negatives. In the Negative Beauty exhibition, negatives are presented as exceptional objects with their own intrinsic value. Unique nineteenth-century negatives are combined with material from the twentieth and twenty-first centuries.

The Turing Foundation is contributing € 40,000 towards this exhibition, which can be seen between 11 December 2020 and 10 March 2021.

Nationale Opera & Ballet Nationale Opera en Ballet, Busvervoer naar schoolmatinees, 2020-2023
The following text will be translated into English as soon as possible:
De Nationale Opera & Ballet (NOB) heeft als missie om iedereen de magie van opera en ballet te laten ervaren en opent haar deuren voor bezoekers van alle leeftijden. Daarbij heeft jeugd in het bijzonder de aandacht: de NOB wil dat ieder schoolgaand kind (van zowel het primair- als het voortgezet onderwijs) de kans heeft om te beleven hoe het is om meegesleept te worden door een prachtig gezongen verhaal of een mooie danservaring. Een belangrijk onderdeel van het aanbod voor basisscholen zijn de schoolmatinees: extra voorstellingen van specifiek daarvoor geselecteerde opera- en balletproducties die exclusief worden aangeboden aan scholen uit heel Nederland. Het animo voor de schoolmatinees is groot, maar het vervoer naar het theater is voor veel scholen buiten Amsterdam een drempel, zowel organisatorisch als financieel. De NOB wil deze drempel structureel wegnemen en door het aanbieden van busvervoer basisschool-leerlingen uit het hele land bereiken.

De Turing Foundation draagt € 115,800 bij (waarvan € 38,600 in 2020) voor het busvervoer naar de speciale schoolmatinees van Nationale Opera & Ballet, die tussen september 2020 en juni 2023 zullen plaatsvinden.

Centraal Museum Acquisition of 'Granido and Daifilo' (1623) van Dirck van Baburen, Centraal Museum, Utrecht, 2020
The following text will be translated into English as soon as possible:
Het Centraal Museum heeft een werk aangekocht van Dirck van Baburen, caravaggist en grondlegger van de pastorale schilderkunst. De Utrechtse edelman Pieter van Hardenbroeck bestelde dit doek in 1623 ter herinnering aan zijn prille liefde voor zijn vrouw. Van Baburen beeldde hen uit als Granida en Daifilo (een Perzische prinses en een eenvoudige herder). Hij realiseerde met dit kapitale doek de vroegste uitbeelding van het vanaf dat moment zo populaire thema. De aankoop vormt een uniek tweeluik met de prachtige Granida en Daifilo die Gerard van Honthorst in 1625 schilderde, en ook behoort tot de collectie van het Centraal Museum.

Het kunstwerk werd verkocht via een openbare veiling in januari 2020. De Turing Foundation stelde € 50,000 ter beschikking, zodat de musea tot een nog hoger bedrag konden meedingen in de kunstveiling. Het is de musea gelukt het werk te bemachtigen zonder van de bijdrage van de Turing Foundation gebruik te hoeven maken.

Van Gogh MuseumDrents Museum Acquisition of Vincent van Gogh's 'Farmer Burning Weeds' (1883), Van Gogh Museum, Amsterdam, 2019-2020
The Drents Museum and the Van Gogh Museum have acquired one of Vincent van Gogh's early paintings: Farmer Burning Weeds (1883). This small but powerful work depicts a lonely figure on a deserted plain at dusk, illuminated by a small fire. Van Gogh painted it in Drenthe, in the north-east of the Netherlands, where he spent the autumn of 1883 and captured the landscape in paintings and drawings. This is one of the few paintings from this period to have survived. The artwork was sold at a public auction.

The Turing Foundation committed € 110,000 to enable the museums to increase their bid at the art auction. The museums acquired the work without having to utilise the Turing Foundation's provision.

Museum Gouda Candlelight, Museum Gouda, 2020-2021
Museum Gouda curates the historical collection of the mediaeval town of Gouda, a town famous for Gouda cheese and Gouda pottery. Since the Stearine Candle Factory opened in 1853, Gouda has also been a candle manufacturer. 'Candle Town Gouda' is the title of Museum Gouda's exhibition on the phenomenon of candlelight in painting. The museum has selected over forty paintings from the sixteenth to the eighteenth centuries in which artists have used candlelight, for example, to enhance the drama, and emphasise depth and the effect of shadow. Around fourteen paintings are from international collections. Most of these foreign loans have not be exhibited in the Netherlands for a long time or ever before.

The Turing Foundation is contributing € 20,000 towards this exhibition, which can be seen between 31 October 2020 and 28 February 2021.

Teylers Museum John Constable, Teylers Museum, Haarlem, 2020-2021
Teylers Museum is organising the first retrospective on the English landscape painter John Constable (1776-1837), who was a member of the Romantic school and was ground breaking in his realistic portrayal of landscapes and cloudy skies. He was heavily influenced by the seventeenth-century Flemish and Dutch masters and the realistic way in which Jacob van Ruysdael, Rembrandt and Rubens portrayed landscapes. An impressive 90 of Constable's works - paintings, watercolours and sketches - from international collections are being used to give an overview of his artistic development and the influence of Dutch masters on his work.

The Turing Foundation is contributing € 40,000 towards this exhibition, which can be seen between 19 September 2020 and 3 January 2021.

Drents Museum 'Frida Kahlo. Viva la Frida', Drents Museum, 2020-2021
In 2020 the Drents Museum is organising the largest project in the museum's history: an exhibition on Mexican artist Frida Kahlo (1907-1954). Kahlo's predominantly autobiographical work is classified as magical realism and is characterised by her use of bright colours and Mexican folklore motifs. About 145 works from two Mexican collections - paintings and drawings from Museo Dolores Olmedo and personal objects from Museo Frida Kahlo - give an overview of Frida Kahlo's life and work. The works from the aforementioned collections have never been exhibited together before and most of Kahlo's works have never been seen in the Netherlands. This makes the exhibition a first in all respects.

The Turing Foundation is contributing €75,000 towards this exhibition, which can be seen between 11 October 2020 and 28 March 2021.

Scheepvaartmuseum Amsterdam 'Willem van de Velde: Father & Son', Scheepvaartmuseum Amsterdam, 2020-2021
From October 2020 the National Maritime Museum is presenting an exhibition on Willem van de Velde the Elder (1611-1693) and his son Willem van de Velde the Younger (1633-1707). The pair worked together for forty years in a thriving and international family studio and set the tone in seascape painting in the seventeenth century. Willem van de Velde the Elder was expert at detailed pen paintings and Willem van de Velde the Younger excelled in the production of oil paintings. The overview will consist of around 40 paintings and 35 drawings by the two Van de Veldes (mostly from foreign collections), varying from small sketches to monumental naval battles and supplemented with, among other things, model ships and a special tapestry.

The Turing Foundation is contributing €40,000 towards this exhibition, which can be seen between 2 October 2020 and 11 April 2021.

Van Gogh Museum 'Gustav Klimt. Inspired by Monet, Van Gogh, Matisse', Van Gogh Museum, Amsterdam, 2020-2021
The Austrian artist Gustav Klimt (1862-1918) lived and worked in Vienna's belle époque, a period of unparalleled artistic achievement. Klimt was a member of the symbolist art movement and gained particular fame for his later work, characterised by decorative ornamentalism and suggestive-erotic symbolism. The Van Gogh Museum is organising a retrospective on Gustav Klimt in which the influence of international avant-garde art on Klimt's oeuvre is illustrated: from Whistler and Toorop, via Monet and Rodin, to Van Gogh and Matisse. 50 works by Gustav Klimt and 50 works by contemporaries are being brought to Amsterdam. The exhibition will then continue at the Österreichische Galerie Belvedere in Vienna.

The Turing Foundation is contributing € 100,000 towards this exhibition, which can be seen between 2 October 2020 and 10 January 2021.

Dordrechts Museum 'In the light of Cuyp. Aelbert Cuyp & Gainsborough - Constable - Turner', Dordrechts Museum, 2020-2021
The landscape painter Aelbert Cuyp (1620-1691) lived and worked for his entire life in the town of Dordrecht. During his life his work was sold predominantly in and around Dordrecht, but in the mid-eighteenth century his art was discovered by English art collectors, resulting in 'Cuyp mania'. Aelbert Cuyp's work had a major impact on English landscape painters in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. Painters such as Thomas Gainsborough, John Constable and J.M.W. Turner particularly admired his work. The Dordrechts Museum is marking the 400th centenary of the artist's birth with an ambitious exhibition on Aelbert Cuyp's influence on English landscape painting. 35 of Cuyp's paintings and an equal number of his successors' paintings from foreign (mainly British) collections will be coming to Dordrecht.

The Turing Foundation is contributing € 40,000 towards this exhibition, which can be seen between 27 September 2020 and 14 March 2021.

Beelden aan Zee 'Niki de Saint Phalle aan Zee', Museum Beelden aan Zee, Scheveningen, 2019-2020
The work of the French sculptor and painter Niki de Saint Phalle (1930-2002) is regarded as Nouveau Realism and is associated with Pop Art. The self-taught Saint Phalle played an important role in female empowerment in the art world in the 1960s and 1970s, and she is renowned for her monumental works, including the Nanas - opulent, brightly coloured female figures. These cheerful primaeval mothers are an ode to women as the source of life. These Nanas, also called bathers, are the focus of the retrospective exhibition 'Niki de Saint Phalle at Sea' at Museum Beelden aan Zee. A total of 80 international loans will illustrate the Nanas development in all their diversity from 1965. The Nanas will not be highlighted solely as an iconic image of women but will also be placed in the context of the ongoing discussion of gender relations, equal treatment and the #metoo movement.

The Turing Foundation is contributing € 25,000 towards this exhibition, which can be seen between 5 October 2019 and 1 March 2020.

In 2020 Museum Helmond is organising the first retrospective exhibition on the Helmond-born Lucas Gassel (1480/1500 - 1568/69), a landscape painter famous in his time. A total of 62 works from around the world are coming to Helmond, seventeen of which are paintings and eight drawings by Lucas Gassel - almost all the artist's surviving works. The other works are by contemporaries and followers. The exhibition on Gassel's work and life is the culmination of the Gassel year 2019 - the 450th anniversary of the artist's death, which is being grandly commemorated in Helmond.

The Turing Foundation is contributing € 30,000 towards this exhibition, which can be seen between 10 March and 7 June 2020.

EYE Filmmuseum Francis Alÿs, Eye Filmmuseum, Amsterdam, 2019-2020
Eye Filmmuseum is presenting an exhibition on the Belgian-Mexican artist Francis Al˙s (1959) in the winter of 2019/20. Francis Al˙s is internationally renowned for his engaged video and film art, and his performance and visual art. It is mainly focused on daily life in Mexico City. He also focuses on border locations and conflict zones, investigating the role of artists in socially and politically charged places. The Children's Games exhibition shows eighteen large video works in which playing children have the leading role. The recordings were made in both peaceful towns and villages and places in conflict.

The Turing Foundation is contributing € 30,000 towards this exhibition, which can be seen between 19 December 2019 and 8 March 2020.

Design Museum Den Bosch "Geert Lap - Specific Objects", Design Museum Den Bosch, 2019
The ceramic oeuvre of the Dutch designer and artist Geert Lap (1951-2017) can be regarded as a relentless search for perfection; the perfect symbiosis of shape, colour and material. Lap's work is held in high regard. It is collected in the Netherlands and internationally and can be found in Dutch and international museum collections. The Design Museum Den Bosch is presenting the first oeuvre overview of Geert Lap's work. It's collection of his works (28 pieces) will be complemented with representative loans of Lap's oeuvre. It will be the first time that the series 99 variations (1993) has been exhibited in full since its creation.

The Turing Foundation is contributing € 5,000 towards this exhibition, which can be seen between 1 June and 1 August 2019.

Based on Vincent van Gogh's art collection, the exhibition "Van Goghs Intimates: friends, family, models" will be in the Noordbrabants Museum. The exhibition is focused on Vincent van Gogh's relationships with the people who played an important role in his life and work: family, friends and fellow artists. As well as paintings from museums and private collections in the Netherlands and abroad, the exhibition includes letters, sketchbooks and other objects which say something about the relationship between Van Gogh and his intimates. The museum wants the exhibition to link the artist more closely to his native region, Brabant.

The Turing Foundation is contributing €40,000 towards this exhibition, which can be seen between September 2019 and January 2020.

Drents Museum Sprezzatura, 50 years of Italian Painting 1860-1910, Drents Museum, 2019
In 2019 the Drents Museum is organising an exhibition on Italian painting in the period 1860 - 1910. Over 70 works from approximately 30 (mostly Italian) collections give an impression of the development of Italian painting in the five decades after the unification of Italy in 1861 - the risorgimento. The overview consists of works by around fifty artists and includes a wide variety of styles and themes, most of which have never previously been exhibited in the Netherlands.

The Turing Foundation is contributing €20,000 towards this exhibition, which can be seen between 2 June and 3 November 2019.

Kunstmuseum Den Haag "Monet. The garden paintings", Kunstmuseum Den Haag, 2019-2020
For the first time in 30 years the Kunstmuseum Den Haag is organising a monographic exhibition on Claude Monet (1840-1926), in which the artist's development in the last 25 years of his life will take centre stage. Monet retired around 1900 to his home in Giverny, where he focused on depicting his flowery garden. The work he created there was initially still impressionist, but over time Monet used an increasingly expressive and almost abstract visual language. Exhibiting Monet's images of water lilies and wisteria clearly demonstrates this development. As well as two works from its own collection, the Gemeentemuseum is displaying more than 30 works from foreign collections.

The Turing Foundation is contributing €75,000 towards this exhibition, which can be seen between 12 October 2019 and 2 February 2020

The Rembrandt House Museum is opening the Rembrandt Year 2019 with an exhibition entitled 'Rembrandt's Social Network' - devoted to Rembrandt's family and friends and the role they played in his life and work. It looks at artist friends, loyal friends and 'blood relatives'. The overview of 60 works, with an emphasis on Rembrandt's informal art works by and for intimates, provides insight into Rembrandt's world and intimate circle. A total of approximately nine foreign loans are coming to Amsterdam, including the 'Portrait of Titus' (Museum of Art Baltimore, c. 1660) which has not previously been exhibited in the Netherlands.

The Turing Foundation is contributing €25,000 towards this exhibition, which can be seen between 2 February and 5 May 2019.

Stedelijk Museum Schiedam Main supporter "Manzoni in Holland", Stedelijk Museum Schiedam, 2019
Piero Manzoni was one of the great innovators in visual arts in the 20th century. In his short life (1933-1963) he produced an impressive oeuvre and was highly influential on the development of conceptual art. The Stedelijk Museum Schiedam's 'Manzoni in Holland' exhibition is the first time in almost 50 years that his work is being exhibited on a large scale in the Netherlands. It shows Manzoni's artistic development in the context of his collaboration with Dutch galleries and artists, and his influence on the Dutch nul-kunstenaars ('zero artists'), conceptual artists in the 1960s, and the ZERO movement in Rotterdam and internationally.

The Turing Foundation is contributing €50,000 towards this exhibition, which can be seen between 16 February and 2 June 2019.

Bonnefanten Museum Maastricht Master of Elsloo 'From lonely hand to collection of masters', Bonnefantenmuseum, 2019
In the 16th century the so-called 'Master of Elsloo' worked in the Euroregion of Dutch and Belgian Limburg and the adjacent German region. This was a collective name for a group of highly skilled carvers. The Bonnefantenmuseum - which owns six figures attributed to the Master of Elsloo - is organising an international exhibition on the subject in 2017, in which the results of multidisciplinary research on the subject will also be presented.

The Turing Foundation is contributing €60,000 towards this exhibition, earmarked for the marketing and communication required to engage a wide audience with this particular topic.

Kunsthal KadeMuseum Flehite "Maestro van Wittel, Dutch master of the Italian townscape", 2019
Kunsthal KAdE and Museum Flehite are organising an exhibition in 2019 about the artist Caspar van Wittel (1653 - 1736), who was born in Amersfoort. Van Wittel went to Rome in 1674, and using the name 'Gaspare Vanvitelli', caused a furore. He is regarded as the founder of vedutism, the genre of townscapes with which successors such as Canaletto, Bellotto and Guardi would later have great triumphs. There will be around 40 paintings and 25 drawings with which the Dutch public can get acquainted with the artist Van Wittel, who is unknown in his native country. His works are being exhibited in combination with work by his Dutch predecessors and Italian successors. The Turing Foundation is contributing € 40,000 towards this exhibition, which can be seen between 19 January and 25 Mei 2019.

Centraal Museum "Utrecht, Caravaggio and Europe", Centraal Museum, Utrecht, 2018-2019
One of the Centraal Museum's core collections is the Utrecht Caravaggists. From the autumn of 2018, the museum will present a special overview that will provide insight into the way the three Utrecht painters Gerard van Honthorst, Dirck van Baburen and Hendrick ter Brugghen were influenced by Caravaggio during their travels to Rome in the early 17th century. Their most beautiful works will be juxtaposed with that of their Italian, French, Spanish and Flemish colleagues. A total of 70 works will be exhibited, including 48 paintings from international collections - culminating in Caravaggio's The Entombment of Christ from the Vatican museums.

The Turing Foundation is supporting this exhibition (14 December 2018 to 24 March 2019) with a contribution of € 50,000.

Frans Hals Museum "Frans Hals and the Moderns", Frans Hals Museum, 2018-2019
Frans Hals is regarded as one of the most innovative painters of the Dutch Golden Age for his characteristic virtuoso brushstroke. The artist fell into oblivion in the 18th century, but was rediscovered in the 19th century by international top painters. Edouard Manet, John Singer Sargent, Vincent van Gogh and others travelled to Haarlem to study Hals' portraits. With the exhibition 'Frans Hals and the Modernists', the Frans Hals Museum wants to provide insight into the relationship between Hals' work and that of the late 19th-century artists who admired him. A total of 60 works from international collections will be coming to Haarlem. The Turing Foundation is contributing € 50,000 towards this exhibition, which will be from 12 October 2018 to 10 February 2019.

Museum Boijmans van Beuningen "Pure Rubens", Museum Boijmans van Beuningen, Rotterdam, 2018-2019
At the end of 2018, Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen, together with the Museo Nacional del Prado, is presenting an exhibition of Pieter Paul Rubens' oil sketches. Rubens prepared many of his compositions with painted sketches on panel. Unlike many of his large paintings, the oil sketches are entirely Rubens' own work, giving an unprecedented insight into his mastery and virtuosity. A total of 60 works are coming to Rotterdam, most of them from the Prado.

The Turing Foundation is contributing € 50,000 towards this exhibition, which will be from 8 September 2018 to 13 January 2019.

Museum de Fundatie "Giacometti - Chadwick, Facing Fear", Museum de Fundatie, Zwolle, 2018-2019
From 22 September 2018 to 6 January 2019, Museum de Foundatie is organising an exhibition of the works of Alberto Giacometti (1901-1966) and Lynn Chadwick (1914-2003 ). Together they contributed decisively to the modern face of sculpture in the second half of the twentieth century. Museum de Fundatie wants to show that the artists experienced a parallel development in the 1950s and 1960s: both felt the threatening apocalypse of the Cold War after the euphoria of liberation and both portrayed this fear of death in their work. 28 sculptures and 37 works on paper by Alberto Giacometti are being exhibited and 40 sculptures and 20 to 40 works on paper by Lynn Chadwick.

The Turing Foundation is contributing € 40,000 towards this exhibition.

The Design Museum Den Bosch, which collects Cocteau's ceramics and jewellery, is organising the first solo exhibition of his work in the Netherlands. The 12 works from its own collection are being exhibited in the context of the artist's total oeuvre. There is also insight into Cocteau's life and motives.

Museum Het Valkhof "I, Mary of Guelders", Museum Het Valkhof, 2018-2019
Mary of Guelders' prayer book is one of the greatest medieval art treasures from the Netherlands. It could not be viewed for years - neither by the general public, nor even by researchers. Museum Het Valkhof will for the first time exhibit a total of forty restored pages in 2018. In addition to the prayer book, special objects are being used to give an impression of Mary of Guelders' life.

Museum Prinsenhof Delft Main Supporter 'Pieter de Hooch in Delft', Museum Prinsenhof Delft, 2019-2020
Never before has Pieter de Hooch been seen monographically in the Netherlands, even though everyone in the country knows his name and work, and almost every Dutch city has a Pieter de Hooch street. This very ambitious and courageous project by Museum Prinsenhof Delft is taking De Hooch out of Vermeer's shadow. Museum Prinsenhof brings Pieter De Hooch's masterpieces and visitors' favourites from all over the world - Germany, Ireland, Spain, America, France, Austria, the UK and Russia - back to Delft: the city where this important master of the Dutch Golden Age produced his finest works. It is all being done in time for the Golden Age centenary year 2019. Thorough historical research conducted prior to the exhibition and is being combined with broad peripheral programming involving many people in Delft. This exhibition could well entice some of the many tourists from Amsterdam! It is a special achievement by an energetic team able to deliver here and now.

The Turing Foundation awarded the € 500,000 Turing Award 2017 to Museum Prinsenhof Delft for its exhibition on Pieter de Hooch, which will be open to the public from 11 October 2019 to 16 February 2020.

Beelden aan Zee Main Supporter 'Zadkine Aan Zee', Museum Beelden aan Zee, Scheveningen, 2018-2019
Exhibiting sculptures in the Netherlands is not easy. But Museum Beelden aan Zee - which was only founded 23 years ago! - has been exceptional for a long time and is now working on a grand retrospective (just say the biggest ever) of the poetic, lyrically focused and 'purely artisan' sculptor Ossip Zadkine (1890-1967). Zadkine was important to the Netherlands - which Dutchman does not know the national monument The Destroyed City, which he made in 1953 as a memorial to the bombing of Rotterdam. It was high time someone dared to exhibit a retrospective. Museum Beelden aan Zee took up the challenge. Thanks to a well thought-out concept, and more than a hundred sculptures, many of which have never before been exhibited anywhere - presented in ten overarching themes, each more intriguing than the previous one - the public will be able to learn about the versatility and scope of this Franco-Russian master of modernism.

The Turing Foundation awarded the € 150,000 Turing Award 2017 to Museum Beelden aan Zee for their 'Zadkine Aan Zee' exhibition, which will be open to the public from 6 October 2018 to 3 March 2019.

Amsterdamse School Museum Het Schip Exposition 'Gaudi in de Amsterdamse School', Museum Het Schip, 2018-2019
Museum Het Schip has been based in the social housing block called 'Het Schip' in Amsterdam's Spaarndammerbuurt neighbourhood since 2001. The museum draws many parallels between the methods of architects of the Amsterdam School and designs by the Spanish architect Gaudi (1852-1926), and has had the opportunity to make special loans from Barcelona (ranging from doors, chairs and tiles to models and blueprints) and exhibit them in Amsterdam. The exhibition will provide insights into the sources of inspiration, symbolism and craftsmanship of Gaudi and architects of the Amsterdam School and appreciation for their work in the past 100 years.

The Turing Foundation is contributing € 10,000 towards this exhibition, which can be seen between 1 October 2018 and 1 April 2019.

Stichting Klassiekfabriek Klassifest 2020, Paradiso, Amsterdam, 2020
Stichting Klassiekfabriek has been organising Klassifest in Paradiso since 2016: a one-day festival with bite-sized classical music for a young audience between the ages of 20 and 40. Whilst many orchestras and ensembles struggle to attract this target group, Klassifest has done so successfully. Its concept: all Klassifest concerts are no longer than half an hour, the bar is open and there are no seats in the hall. The venue (a pop concert venue) and the short concerts give the audience the opportunity to listen to various kinds of classical music and different musicians in a shorter time. Klassifest 2020's theme, 'Ludwig's birthday!', marks the 250th anniversary of Beethoven's birth.

The Turing Foundation is contributing € 5,000 towards Klassifest 2020, which will take place on 4 April 2020.

Internationaal Kamermuziek Festival Utrecht International Chamber Music Festival Utrecht, 2019
The International Chamber Music Festival Utrecht hosts a total of nearly 50 concerts and activities at over twenty venues around the city of Utrecht, allowing it to reach a wide audience. The number of visitors to the festival has been falling since 2017. After an evaluation, which included partners and the audience, it decided to move the festival in 2019 from the busy month of June to the Christmas period. Janine Jansen, who founded the festival and was its artistic director until 2016, has decided to help 'her' festival attract to old visitor numbers and is returning as the forthcoming edition's artistic director and programmer. She will remain the festival's artistic director in the coming years, but the festival will appoint a yearly alternating external programmer from 2020.

The Turing Foundation is supporting the International Chamber Music Festival Utrecht (27 to 30 December 2019) with a donation of € 10,000 in 2019.

The concerts on the main programme take place at Museum Het Prinsenhof, and a variety of concerts take place at venues including the Oude Kerk, the Oude Bibliotheek and the Grote Markt.

Turing GedichtenwedstrijdPoėzieclub The Eleventh Poetry Contest 2019-2020
In the period 2009 - 2018 the Turing Foundation organised the Turing Poetry Competition in collaboration with the Poėzieclub, which was a great success with a total of nearly 100,000 poems submitted by 17,000 poets. The Turing Foundation decided at the end of 2018 that it was time to withdraw after ten years as the main sponsor of the competition. The Poėzieclub has taken over coordination of the competition and will make efforts in the coming period to continue the competition and organise the eleventh edition. The competition's set-up will not change: registration is anonymous, everyone can participate and the main prize is a grand €10,000.

The Turing Foundation will still donate the prize money for the eleventh edition of the Poetry Competition, a total of €14,500.
