Rembrandthuis 'The Art of Illusion. Samuel van Hoogstraten, Rembrandt's Pupil', Rembrandt House, Amsterdam, 2025
At the 'The Art of Illusion' exhibition visitors to the Rembrandt House Museum get to know Rembrandt the teacher through the eyes of his pupil Samuel van Hoogstraten. They discover how Van Hoogstraten learnt and further developed the art of illusionism. They also see how Van Hoogstraten played a crucial role in spreading Rembrandt's vision of art. International loans are expected from the Rembrandt House's partner, Kunsthistorisches Museum Vienna, as well as from the Louvre Museum, The Leiden Collection, Museumlandschaft Hessen Kassel - Schloss Wilhelmshöhe.

The Turing Foundation is contributing € 25,000 towards this exhibition, which can be seen from 1 February 2025 to 4 May 2025.

Museum van Loon Wallerant Vaillant Exhibition, Museum Van Loon, Amsterdam, 2024-2025
Museum Van Loon is organising an exhibition on the seventeenth-century artist Wallerant Vaillant (1623-1677). His painting is of a high standard, and he was a true pioneer in developing techniques such as mezzotint and pastel. The general public is no longer familiar with his varied oeuvre. Museum Van Loon is changing this by organising an exhibition for the first time with painted portraits and domestic scenes and examples of his mastery of mezzotint and pastel techniques. Exceptional international loans have been requested from the Gemäldegalerie Berlin and museums in Weimar, Bremen and Hamburg.

The Turing Foundation is contributing € 10,000 towards this exhibition, which can be seen from 5 October 2024 to 5 January 2025 .

Dordrechts Museum 'LIBERTÉ! Ary Scheffer (1795 - 1858) and French Romanticism' exhibition, Dordrechts Museum, 2024-2025
The Dordrechts Museum is organising 'LIBERTÉ! Ary Scheffer (1795-1858) and French Romanticism'. The exhibition showcases the greatest French Romantic painters.

International loans have been requested from the French Musée de La Via Romantique and Paris Musées, Château de Versailles, the Louvre, Belvédère Vienna, and museums in the United Kingdom.

The Turing Foundation is contributing € 25,000 towards this exhibition, which can be seen from 19 October 2024 to 23 March 2025 .

Nederlands Steendrukmuseum Leonetto Cappiello Exhibition, Dutch Lithography Museum, Valkenswaard, 2024
The Dutch Lithography Museum is organising an exhibition about Leonetto Cappiello (1875 - 1942). He was one of the most important international poster artists and a master of lithography. For his works he used lithography. The exhibition not only shows his finished products (posters and caricatures) but also his designs, sketches, drawings, gouaches and watercolours. This gives a unique and comprehensive view of the artist's oeuvre and working methods. The emphasis is on his development from caricaturist to poster artist in fin de siècle Paris. The museum displays his most iconic works, such as Laterna Magica (1896), his first poster Le Frou-Frou (1899), Chocolat Klaus (1903), and Kub/Bouillon (1931).

The Turing Foundation is contributing € 10,000 towards this exhibition, which can be seen from 1 June 2024 to 10 November 2024.

Bonnefanten Maastricht The Deadly Sins, The Bonnefanten Museum, Maastricht, 2024-2025
The battle between good and evil, morality and immorality is a universal theme. Whether it concerns an inner struggle or a tangible temptation, every person faces moral dilemmas. Because the forbidden fruit always turns out to be more desirable, it leaves no wonder that these cardinal sins are ubiquitous in art history. This exhibition in The Bonnefanten Museum celebrates the topic of sin during the 16th century. A series of prints of the seven deadly sins made by Pieter Bruegel de Oude plays a central role in this exhibition. His sources of inspiration, works by his contemporaries and followers who were influenced by him and depicted the same theme, are all on display at this exhibition. In addition to important works from Bonnefanten's own collection, there are collaborations with many museums and various national and international private collections.

The Turing Foundation is contributing €45,000 to this exhibition, which will be on view from October 4, 2024 to January 12, 2025.

Museum Arnhem Radical - Female Artists & Modernism 1910-1950, Museum Arnhem, 2024-2025
Radical - Female Artists & Modernism 1910-1950 celebrates the work of female artists who pushed boundaries in the first half of the twentieth century. Museum Arnhem, the Saarland Museum in Saarbrücken and the Belvedere in Vienna have joined forces to curate an extraordinary exhibition that explores the relationship between gender inequality, art and modernism. Women in Modernism offers an unique overview of beautiful and inspiring works of once very successful, often now forgotten artists or works from female artists that have never been shown in the Netherlands. All works are dating from the period 1910-1950. A wealth of worldwide loans is on display, supplemented with works from the collections of Museum Arnhem, Saarland Museum and Belvédère. This ambitious exhibition sheds new light on the art world of the early twentieth century, highlighting the artistic expressions of women artists amid social change, political unrest and technological revolutions.

The Turing Foundation is contributing €30,000 to this exhibition, which can be seen between 5 September 2024 till 5 January 2025.

Frans Hals MuseumStedelijk Museum AlkmaarTeylers Museum Maarten van Heemskerck, Frans Hals Museum, Stedelijk Museum Alkmaar, Teylers Museum, 2024-2025
Maarten van Heemskerck, famous in his own time and a pioneer in the art of the Northern Netherlands, is back in the spotlight. Through a special collaboration project between the Frans Hals Museum, Stedelijk Museum Alkmaar and Teylers Museum, the public will have the unique opportunity to become acquainted with the size, meaning and impact of his oeuvre. This will be a unique monographic exhibition about this artist. The three museums will highlight why Heemskerck was so innovative. In the context of this extensive exhibition - with many previously unseen works - the restored paintings and surprising new insights into Van Heemskerck's work and techniques will be presented to the public.

The Turing Foundation is contributing €60,000 to these exhibitions, which will be on display in the three collaborating museums from 27 September 2024 till 19 January 2025.

Vereniging Rembrandt Vereniging Rembrandt, Amsterdam, 2024
Dutch museums wanting to acquire a special work of art can seek assistance from the Vereniging Rembrandt. This association is committed to the protection and enrichment of Dutch public art collections. It was founded in 1883 and currently has more than 15,000 members. As an independent, private organisation, the association not only assesses the importance of acquisitions to individual museum collections, but also to the entire Dutch public art collection. Its guiding principle is that valuable art ought to be shared with everyone.

The Turing Foundation supports Vereniging Rembrandt with an annual donation of € 5,000.

Centraal Museum 'On Edge', Centraal Museum, Utrecht, 2024
'On Edge' is a large-scale exhibition at the Centraal Museum Utrecht about hyperrealism, an art movement that emerged in the United States in the 1970s. Hyperrealism includes lifelike works that show an extremely precise, almost clinical representation of reality. Nonetheless, the depicted realities are shown in a subtle slightly different way. Starting point of the exhibition is the collection of American photorealism in possession of the Centraal Museum. The museum's own collection is supplemented with borrowed works from Dutch collections and international masterpieces, which have never been presented in the Netherlands. The immediate visual appeal and recognizable representations of everyday subjects make hyperrealism a popular genre. What stories do these 'lifelike' works tell and by whom are they told? What lies behind their beautiful appearance? In this exhibition the genre of hyperrealism is critically examined, fifty years after its emergence. The beauty and craftmanship are celebrated, whilst the relationship with the depicted worldviews is being questioned. A common thread is the critical attention for the 'male gaze', which is strongly represented in the hyper realistic canon.

The Turing Foundation is contributing €30.000 towards this exhibition, which can be seen between 10 February and 9 June 2024.

Joods Cultureel Kwartier Sol Lewitt, Jewish Museum, 2023-2024
The Jewish Museum (part of the Jewish Cultural Quarter) organizes a large project about the American conceptual artist Sol LeWitt (1928-2007). This project is realized in close collaboration with the Sol LeWitt Estate. In an accessible manner visitors are invited to experience the visual power of Sol LeWitt's art. The visitors will discover how his work emerged, learn about his Jewish identity and its impact on his work and his strong connection with the Netherlands. He was closely connected with Dutch museums, galleries, collectors and artists. In the Netherlands Soll LeWitt's work has only been presented in group exhibitions. Worldwide the visibility of LeWitts work is also decreasing. Partly because of this reason the Jewish Museum wants the (Dutch) public to (re)acquaint with the visual power and conceptual principles of LeWitt's oeuvre.

The Turing Foundation is contributing  30.000 to this exhibition, which can be seen between 20 October 2023 and 24 March 2024.

Stedelijk Museum Schiedam 'Yayoi Kusama. The Dutch Years 1965-1970', Stedelijk Museum Schiedam, 2023-2024
The Stedelijk Museum Schiedam is dedicating an exhibition to the Dutch years of Japanese artist Yayoi Kusama (b. 1929). Kusama (now 93) is famed for her pop art and her large installations but also as a feminist icon. In 1967 Kusama staged a performance in the Stedelijk Museum Schiedam, in which she painted various locals and the well-known artist Jan Schoonhoven with dots in the museum chapel. The performance caused a big stir and to this day appeals to the imagination. As well as the research findings on this performance, the exhibition also looks at work Kusama made in the Netherlands, her relationship with the Dutch art world and the interplay between her artistic development and social developments in the Netherlands in the 1960s.

The museum is bringing together work by Kusama and her contemporaries; this work is not often displayed in public and most of it comes from private collections. The exhibition consists of a total of 59 works, including 24 from abroad. For this project the museum is collaborating with the 0-Institute, which has collected photographic material of various artists from Kusama's time in the Netherlands. This material has never been displayed publicly in an exhibition.

The Turing Foundation is contributing 25,000 towards this exhibition, which can be seen between 23 September 2023 and 17 March 2024

Vereniging RembrandtRembrandthuisMuseum Boijmans van Beuningen 'Exceptional Opportunity' Initiative, 'Titus is back Home', Rembrandt House, 2023
The Turing Foundation and the Rembrandt Association started a new initiative in 2022 entitled Exceptional Opportunity: more than 100 Dutch art museums were invited to make a exhibition with iconic loans from other Dutch public collections in 2023. There was a budget for the very best proposals. The two winners were: Museum Belvédère and Rembrandt House Museum.

The Rembrandt House Museum is exhibiting Rembrandt's iconic Titus at a Lectern (1655) from the Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen collection. The young Titus van Rijn stares dreamily over the edge of his lectern. Father Rembrandt caught his gaze in 1655, when he lived with his family in the stately building on the Jodenbreestraat in Amsterdam. Nearly 400 years later, Titus has been brought back home. It is the first time ever that Rembrandt's famous masterpiece is being exhibited in the place it was made: in what is now the Rembrandt House Museum. In a small exhibition room, visitors - like Rembrandt - come face to face with Titus. A multimedia tour gives three ways to look at the painting and experience it with a guided meditation. For this multimedia tour the Rembrandt House Museum has used sound clips from Beeld & Geluid's Dutch audio-visual collection.

The Turing Foundation and the Rembrandt Association share the costs of 31,250 for the loan of the painting. Titus can be seen at the Rembrandt House Museum from 18 March to 4 June 2023.

Vereniging RembrandtMuseum Belvédère 'Exceptional Opportunity' Initiative, 'Giorgio Morandi and the Netherlands', Museum Belvédère, 2023
The Turing Foundation and the Rembrandt Association started a new initiative in 2022 entitled Exceptional Opportunity: more than 100 Dutch art museums were invited to make a presentation with iconic loans from other Dutch public collections in 2023. There was a budget for the very best proposals. The two winners are Museum Rembrandthuis and Museum Belvédère.

Museum Belvédère is showing a never-before-exhibited selection of Giorgio Morandi's paintings from various Dutch museums. The museum hosted the successful Giorgio Morandi and Bologna exhibition in 2018. This resulted in a private Dutch donation of one of Morandi's paintings to the museum. Five years later and based on this painting, the museum is curating a exhibition of Morandi's paintings in Dutch collections, with proposed loans from Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen, Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam and the Kunstmuseum Den Haag. The exhibition draws attention to interest in the Netherlands for Morandi and his influence on Dutch artists. Parallel to the presentation, in an adjacent space, the museum is exhibiting the paintings the museum has collected that are related to 'its' Morandi; still lifes by Dutch artists who have an affinity to the Italian master. The artistic values cherished by the museum are at the centre of both presentations: concentration and stillness.

The Turing Foundation and the Rembrandt Association share the costs of 27.000 for this exhibition, which can be seen between 17 June and 24 September.

Keramiek Museum PrincessehofFries Museum 'Porcelain Fever', Keramiek Museum Princessehof, 2023-2024
The Princessehof National Museum of Ceramics is housed in a grand eighteenth-century townhouse in the historical centre of Leeuwarden. The museum has one of the best collections of European and Asian ceramics, from refined porcelain to beautiful earthenware. From autumn 2023, the focus of the museum will be 'Porcelain Fever': an exhibition of extraordinary ceramic pieces from two important collections originating in the eighteenth century, the Meissen and the Sèvres collections. Augustus II the Strong, Elector of Saxony, started the German Meissen collection, and Madame de Pompadour (1721-1764) played an important role in the founding of the French court's Sèvres collection. Rivalry between the two dynasties resulted in veritable porcelain mania. Some 150 objects have been used to illustrate how this competition brought the level of European porcelein production to great heights.

The Turing Foundation is contributing € 30,000 towards this exhibition, which can be seen between 2 march 2024 and 1 September 2024.

Allard Pierson Museum Eye to Eye. The People behind the Mummy Portraits, Allard Pierson, 2023-2024
The Allard Pierson Museum's 'Eye to Eye' exhibition is the first in the Netherlands about mummy portraits: portraits of the deceased (mostly on wooden boards) attached to the faces of mummies in the Roman period in Egypt (1st-4th century CE). The panel portraits are a unique fusion of elements of Ancient Egyptian and Roman culture and give an impression of how these inhabitants of Egypt saw, presented and prepared themselves for a life after death. Their colours, piercing gaze and particularly their almost modern realism appeal to the imagination. The exhibition focuses on the people behind the portraits: the subject, makers, relatives, archaeologists, collectors and researchers. A total of 35 mummy portraits from international collections will be exhibited in Amsterdam.

The Turing Foundation is contributing €40,000 towards this exhibition, which can be seen between 6 October 2023 and 20 May 2024.

Drents Museum Van Gogh in Drenthe, Drents Museum, 2023-2024
In 1883, Vincent van Gogh lived and worked in Drenthe for three months, painting the landscape and the workers in the peatlands of Drenthe. It was an important period in his development; he was isolated from the art world and had the time and space to reflect on his artistry. The Drents Museum is organising an exhibition focused on this specific period in the artist's life. Of the 24 surviving pieces from this period, the museum expects to loan some 20 of them. Works by Van Gogh's contemporaries will be exhibited alongside them: members of the Barbizon school and the Hague School of painters. The exhibition will start on 11 September 2023, exactly 140 years after Van Gogh arrived in Drenthe, and the layout is based on the route the artist took through the province.

The Turing Foundation is contributing €25,500 towards this exhibition, which can be seen between 11 September 2023 and 7 January 2024. The contribution is earmarked for the catalogue.

Kunstmuseum Den Haag Hilma af Klint and Piet Mondrian, Kunstmuseum Den Haag, 2023-2024
The Swedish artist Hilma af Klint (1862 - 1944) is regarded as one of the pioneers of abstract painting. She created more than 1000 paintings, sketches and watercolours and was one of the first artists to make abstract pieces. In the exhibition at the Kunstmuseum Den Haag Hilma af Klint and Piet Mondrian's visual idioms and paths to abstraction are being placed side by side. Their shared interest in spirituality and theosophy is put in the broader context of scientific developments at the end of the nineteenth and the early twentieth centuries, a formative period for both artists. The exhibition, organised in close collaboration with the Tate Modern in London, will show some 100 works by Af Klint and 65 works by Mondrian. In addition, drawings, sketches, letters and notebooks will give insight into both artists' way of working and mental processes.

The Turing Foundation is contributing €30,000 towards this exhibition, which can be seen between 7 October 2023 and 25 February 2024. The contribution is earmarked for the catalogue.

Kröller-Müller MuseumHelene Kröller-Müller Fonds Futurism & Europe. The Aesthetics of a New World, Kröller-Müller Museum, 2023
Futurism (1909-1916) originated on the eve of the First World War in Italy. Futurists revolted against established norms and values and the traditions of the nineteenth century. Art should express the energy of modern life and the dynamics of the new era in all its activity. The exhibition at the Kröller-Müller Museum gives an impression of the 'futurist universe' in the broad context of the European avant-garde by showing an extensive array of objects from the period 1912 to 1939: paintings, sculptures, furniture, ceramics, interior and stage design, clothing, graphic work and utensils. Work by many artists will be exhibited. Italian futurists such as Giacomo Balla, Carlo Carrà and Fortunato Depero as well as avant-garde artists such as Le Corbusier, Pablo Picasso, Fernand Léger, Marianne Brandt, El-Lissitzky, Theo van Doesburg and Gerrit Rietveld will be shown at the exhibition.

The Turing Foundation is contributing €40,000 towards this exhibition, which can be seen between 29 April and 3 September 2023.

Museum Flehite Purchase of two works by Caspar van Wittel, Museum Flehite, 2022
Caspar van Wittel was born in Amersfoort in the Netherlands and went to Rome in 1674, where he was known as 'Gaspare Vanvitelli' and 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. Museum Flehite organised a successful retrospective on Caspar van Wittel in 2019. In collaboration with the Rembrandt Association, it has managed to acquire two works by the artist from private English sellers: a View of Naples, depicting the Dock in Naples, La Darsena, and a View of Rome, depicting the Catel Sant' Angelo and the apse of San Giovanni dei Fiorentini.

This purchase was made possible in part by a contribution of € 30,000 by the Turing Foundation. Regular acquisitions are beyond the scope of the Turing Foundation's funding policy. A one-off exception has been made for the purchase of these two special works, which are important to Museum Flehite and the Netherlands National Collection both historically and in terms of art history.

Museum Prinsenhof Delft Vermeer in Delft, Museum Prinsenhof Delft, 2023
Museum Prinsenhof Delft is developing the exhibition 'Vermeer in Delft' parallel to the survey exhibition on the seventeenth-century master which will be in the same period at the Rijksmuseum. Johannes Vermeer (1632-1675) was born in Delft and lived and worked in the town his entire life; it was one of the most important artistic centres in the Northern Netherlands in the seventeenth century. Museum Prinsenhof is using important people in Vermeer's life to sketch the artistic, intellectual and social climate in Delft in the latter half of the seventeenth century: what was the artistic context in which Vermeer worked, what did the town of Delft and his daily life look like? The exhibition is expected to include 90 pieces, including paintings by contemporaries Carel Fabritius, Pieter de Hooch, Dirck van Baburen and Carel de Man. Most of these works are being exhibited in the Netherlands for the first time in many years.

The Turing Foundation is contributing € 30,000 towards this exhibition, which can be seen between 10 February and 4 June 2023. The contribution is earmarked for the publication.

Rijksmuseum Twenthe Sofonisba Anguissola. Portraitist of the Renaissance, Rijksmuseum Twenthe, 2023
In collaboration with the Danish Nivaagaards Malerisamling, Rijksmuseum Twenthe is organising the first monographic exhibition in the Netherlands on the Italian renaissance painter Sofonisba Anguissola (1532-1625). Sofonisba Anguissola was one of the most talented artists of the sixteenth century, but few people know her name these days. In a time in which women had limited possibilities and opportunities, she successfully became an important portrait painter. She developed her own style with personal and expressive portraits of 'real' people, managing to capture their emotions well. She fulfilled the aristocracy's desire to be immortalised and painted at the Spanish court of Philip II and his wife Elisabeth of Valois for a time. Rijksmuseum Twenthe is exhibiting a total of 25 of the 34 works ascribed to Sofonisba Anguissola, twenty of which have not previously been exhibited in the Netherlands.

The Turing Foundation is contributing € 20,000 towards this exhibition, which can be seen between 12 February and 11 June 2023.

Noordbrabants Museum Brueghel: the Family Reunion, Noordbrabants Museum, 2023-2024
The Noordbrabants Museum is organising a large-scale exhibition on the Brueghel dynasty, the most famous family of artists with roots in North Brabant. The Brueghel dynasty includes five generations of successful painters - of whom Pieter Brueghel the Elder (c. 1525/1530 - 1569) is the most famous - who worked over a period of about 150 years, from 1550 to 1700. The members of the Brueghel family were active in almost all genres of painting: from local and foreign landscapes and tableaux of everyday rural life to allegories, mythical stories, history paintings and floral still-lifes. As well as Pieter Brueghel the Elder, work will be exhibited by his sons Pieter Brueghel the Younger en Jan Brueghel the Elder, his grandchildren Jan Brueghel the Younger and Abraham Brueghel, his master Pieter Coecke van Aelst, and extended family David Teniers the Younger and Jan van Kessel the Elder. The exhibition is based on the Noordbrabants Museum collection, which will be augmented by loans from as many as 40 museums in the Netherlands and abroad.

The Turing Foundation is contributing € 50,000 towards this exhibition, which can be seen between 30 September 2023 and 7 January 2024.

Teylers Museum 'Hockney's Eye', Teylers Museum, 2022-2023
Since the beginning of his lengthy career, David Hockney (1937) has explored how we see the world around us and how artists over the centuries have captured this on the surface of a flat picture. In the exhibition Hockney's Eye - a co-production with the Fitzwilliam Museum and the Heong Gallery in Cambridge - works by Hockney, old masters' artworks and optical instruments give insight into how artists work. The exhibition includes a total of about 80 pieces, including highlights from Hockney's oeuvre which have never been shown in the Netherlands.

The Turing Foundation is contributing €40,000 towards this exhibition, which will be open to the public from 23 September 2022 to 29 January 2023.

Singer Museum Laren Exhibition 'Kees van Dongen: Daring and Seduction', Singer Museum, Laren, 2023
Kees van Dongen's (1877 - 1968) work is characterised by the expressive use of colour and bright colour contrasts. Together with Matisse and André Derain, amongst others, he was one of the leading figures in Fauvism. The Singer Laren is working on an ambitious exhibition on Kees van Dongen's early period, from 1895 to about 1917. A selection of more than 70 works illustrates how in a brief time the artist managed to break through and become one of the most successful artists in Paris.

The Turing Foundation is contributing € 40,000 towards this exhibition, which will open 17 January 2021 and run until 7 May 2023.

Museum Helmond Exhibition 'Anthropocene', Museum Helmond, 2022
The exhibition Anthropocene in Museum Helmond is about the human footprint on the earth and combines art, photography and film with augmented reality, theory, science and activism. The exhibition consists of 30 photographs by Canadian artist Edward Burtynsky in a large format (2 x 1.50 metres), combined with film footage of the same locations by Canadian documentary makers Jennifer Baichwal and Nicholas de Pencier. The film images are taken from their documentary Anthropocene: The Human Epoch (2018). Museum Helmond brings visitors into contact with major global problems in an accessible way and its extensive peripheral programming gives visitors guidance and input for reflection, debate and discussion.

The Turing Foundation is contributing € 18,000 towards this exhibition, which can be seen between 10 April and 11 September 2022.

Uitgeverij IJzer Publication Mondriaan in Woord en Beeld, Uitgeverij IJzer, 2022
Piet Mondrian (1872-1944) was one of the most important artists of the twentieth century. He played a leading role in the international avant garde and in the evolution from realistic to abstract art. Mondrian sent many letters, telegrams and postcards, about 1,650 of which have survived. He also wrote dozens of essays, in which he articulated his progressive ideas and artistic ideals. On the occasion of Piet Mondrian's 150th birthday on 7 March 2020, Uitgeverij IJzer is publishing the book Mondriaan in Woord en Beeld (Mondriaan in Words and Pictures). This publication links Mondrian's serial work to his essays. It was written by Louis Veen, whose PhD in 2011 was about Mondrian's written work.

The Turing Foundation is contributing € 3,000 in 2021 towards this publication.

Mauritshuis Den HaagFrick Collection Exhibition: 'Manhattan Masters', Mauritshuis, The Hague, 2022-2023
The Mauritshuis has had the special opportunity to exhibit ten masterpieces from The Frick Collection in New York. The Frick Collection is the art collection of steel magnate Henry Clay Frick (1849-1919), housed in his former home overlooking Central Park. Thanks to a renovation, the museum is in the exceptional position of being able to lend a selection of Dutch masters, including three absolute masterpieces: Rembrandt van Rijn's Self-portrait (1658), Vermeer's Officer and Laughing Girl (c. 1657-1660) and Frans Hals' Portrait of a Man (c.1660). Works by, amongst others, Jacob van Ruysdael, Philips Wouwerman and Aelbert Cuyp will also be brought to the Netherlands. Most of the works have not been seen in the Netherlands since their acquisition in the late nineteenth or early twentieth century.

The Turing Foundation is contributing € 72,500 towards this exhibition, which will be from 29 September 2022 to 15 January 2023. The contribution is earmarked for the loan costs for Rembrandt van Rijn's painting Self-portrait (1658).

Beelden aan Zee Exhibition: 'Henry Moore by the Sea: Form and Material', Museum Beelden aan Zee, Scheveningen, 2023
Henry Moore (1898-1986) was one of the most influential artists in the previous century. He was instrumental in introducing a new form of modernism to the UK. The sculptor is best known to the general public for his large abstract works in bronze and marble: monumental, abstract sculptures in organic form, mostly human figures. Museum Beelden aan Zee is exhibiting top works in Moore's oeuvre and is also focusing on his craft and use of materials. A grand total of 85 sculptures and objects will illustrate how the artist was influenced in the creation of his works by the choice of material and how it was processed.

The Turing Foundation is contributing €25,000 towards this exhibition, which will be from 8 April to 22 October 2023.

Museum Belvédère Exhibition: 'Living the Landscape - Nicholson, Hepworth and the Artists of St. Ives, 1939-1975', Museum Belvédère, Oranjewoud, 2022
Museum Belvédère is organising an exhibition on the art created in St. Ives on the south-west coast of Great Britain in the period 1939-1975. The artist couple Ben Nicholson and Barbara Hepworth settled in the Cornish seaside town in the late 1930s, where avant-garde artist friends Naum Gabo, Roger Hilton, Wilhelmina Barns-Graham, Bryan Wynter, Terry Frost, Patrick Heron and Sandra Blow joined them. St. Ives quickly developed into an international art centre. The artists were inspired by the ancient landscape, the sea and the local people's connection to their environment. A total of about 60 paintings and sculptures, mainly from international collections, will be brought to Oranjewoud, including many pieces that have not been exhibited in the Netherlands before.

The Turing Foundation is contributing €25,000 towards this exhibition, which will be from 28 May to 20 September 2022.

Stedelijk Museum Schiedam Exhibition: 'Living Landscape. Six Centuries of South Holland Maas Delta', Stedelijk Museum Schiedam, 2022
The Stedelijk Museum Schiedam is organising an exhibition about the city of Schiedam and its surrounding landscape: the Maas Delta between Dordrecht and the Hook of Holland. The exhibition 'Living Landscape' presents a cross-section of six centuries of landscape art. It focuses both on the changing landscape of the Maas delta in South Holland and artists' ever-changing impression of this landscape. A selection of more than 30 works from the seventeenth to the nineteenth centuries are being exhibited thematically: Land, Water, Fire and Air. Works from the museum's own collection are being supplemented with masterpieces from various Dutch collections. The museum also hopes to loan several works from abroad, including William Turner's Rotterdam Ferry Boat (1833, National Gallery of Art, Washington).

The Turing Foundation is contributing €20,000 towards this exhibition, which will be from 30 April to 16 October 2022. This donation is earmarked for the loan costs of William Turner's painting Rotterdam Ferry Boat (1833).

Kunstmuseum Den Haag 'Paula Rego', Kunstmuseum The Hague, 2021-2022
Portuguese-British artist Paula Rego's (Lisbon, 1935) oeuvre spans decades and deals with topical themes such as colonial history and feminism. Her early work is often politically tinted and directed against the dictatorial regime of Portuguese Prime Minister António de Oliveira Salazar (1932-1968). Her later work is in the style of magical realism, with family suffering, family relationships and the dominant role of women as central themes. Paula Rego is a star in the United Kingdom, but she has never had a solo exhibition devoted to her work in the Netherlands. Which is why the Kunstmuseum Den Haag has organised an overview of Paula Rego's life and work, based on an impressive 70 works (from Tate Britain and Portuguese museums and private collections, including the Calouste Gulbenkian).

The Turing Foundation is contributing € 30,000 towards this exhibition, which will be from 27 November 2021 to 20 March 2022.

Limburgs Museum 'The Forgotten Princesses of Thorn', Limburgs Museum, Venlo, 2021-2022
Until the end of the eighteenth century, part of the small town of Thorn was home to a convent: an ecclesiastical institution which only hosted unmarried ladies of high nobility. The convent ladies were unusual women in their time: they were independent, elected one of their number as the 'princess-abbess', ruled over their mini-state and were welcome guests at European courts. The exhibition 'The Forgotten Princesses of Thorn' at the Limburgs Museum gives insight into the history of the convent and its inhabitants in the period 1700 to 1794, based on the biographies of three princess-abbesses. A total of more than 200 loans from approximately 50 lenders from museums and private collections in the Netherlands and abroad will feature in the exhibition, including paintings, trinkets, medals, marriage certificates, jewellery, clothing and furniture.

The Turing Foundation is contributing € 30,000 towards this exhibition, which can be seen between 1 October 2021 and 3 April 2022.

Van Gogh Museum 'Golden Boy Gustav Klimt. Inspired by Van Gogh, Rodin, Matisse', Van Gogh Museum, Amsterdam, 2022-2023
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 from 7 October 2022 and 8 January 2023.

Frans Hals Museum Exhibition 'At Home with Jordaens', Frans Hals Museum, 2021-2022
The Frans Hals Museum is devoting an exhibition to the Flemish painter Jacob Jordaens (1593-1678), one of the giants of Antwerp Baroque painting alongside Rubens and Van Dyck. A total of about 30 pieces by Jordaens belonging to the Phoebus Foundation, a private art foundation in Antwerp, are being exhibited in Haarlem. The highlight of the exhibition is the reconstruction of the - partly lost - reception room in Jordaens' house, where he had painted the walls and ceiling with scenes from the mythological story of Amor and Psyche.

The Turing Foundation is contributing €30,000 towards this exhibition, which can be seen between 15 October 2021 and 8 May 2022.

Design Museum Den Bosch 'Lucio Fontana - The Conquest of Space', Design Museum Den Bosch, 2021-2022
The avant-garde artist Lucio Fontana (1899-1968) is best known for his monochrome paintings with vertical cuts. This departed from the notion of a painting as a flat painted surface on which space is suggested. The Design Museum Den Bosch is organising an exhibition displaying work from Fontana's entire oeuvre and discussing his ideas about the conception of space in the various disciplines. The museum exhibits ceramic objects, paintings, lights, spatial installations and design. In addition to twenty works from the museum's own collection, many European loans will be on display.

The Turing Foundation is contributing €20,000 towards this exhibition, which will be from 2 October 2021 to 23 January 2022.

Parallel Lives, Parallel Aesthetics is a combination of two solo exhibitions: a large retrospective of León Ferrari (3 September 1920 - 25 July 2013, Buenos Aires) and an overview of Gülsün Karamustafa's (1946, Ankara) work to date. León Ferrari is one of Argentina's most celebrated contemporary artists. He won the Lion D'Or at the Venice Biennale in 2007 and the opening of the exhibition in 2021 marks the moment that the Van Abbemuseum will receive a donation from the Ferrari family, consisting of fourteen works. Gülsün Karamustafa, who won the Prince Claus Award in 2014, is one of the leading lights of contemporary Turkish art and an important figure in the struggle for recognition of female artists.

The Turing Foundation is contributing €15,000 towards this exhibition, which can be seen between 27 November 2021 and 13 March 2022.

Museum Catharijneconvent presents the aesthetic, cultural and historical values of Christian and other religious heritage as well as this history's influence on our society. The museum is planning an exhibition in 2021 dedicated to the biblical figure Mary Magdalene: what is the reason for the widespread fascination with her and how did this complex representation come about? Historical sources, paintings, contemporary visual art and popular culture are used to construct a multifaceted image. In addition to important works from the museum's collection, approximately 50 loans will be exhibited, including approximately nineteen from foreign museums and (private) collections.

The Turing Foundation is contributing €50,000 towards this exhibition, which can be seen between 24 June 2021 and 9 January 2022.

Kunsthal Rotterdam Calder NOW, Kunsthal Rotterdam, 2021-2022
The American sculptor Alexander Calder (1868 - 1976) was fascinated by movement and added dynamism to the previously static art of sculpture. The progressive and experimental nature of his work has had a major influence on the development of the visual arts and was and is an inspiration for contemporaries and subsequent generations. In collaboration with the Calder Foundation, the Kunsthal is organising an exhibition entitled Calder NOW, focusing on Calder's influence on contemporary art. Around 25 of Alexander Calder's works are being exhibited alongside works by ten leading artists who have been inspired by him, including Olafur Eliasson, Ernesto Neto, Sarah Sze, Roman Signer and Carsten Nicolai.

The Turing Foundation is contributing € 50,000 towards this exhibition, which will open 20 November 2021 and run until 29 May 2022.

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 13 November 2021 and 10 April 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 27 June 2021.

Drents Museum 'Frida Kahlo. Viva la Frida - Life and art of Frida Kahlo', Drents Museum, 2021-2022
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 10 October 2021 and 27 March 2022.

Scheepvaartmuseum Amsterdam 'Willem van de Velde: Father & Son', Scheepvaartmuseum Amsterdam, 2021-2022
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 1 October 2021 and 27 March 2022.

Dordrechts Museum 'In the light of Cuyp. Aelbert Cuyp & Gainsborough - Constable - Turner', Dordrechts Museum, 2021-2022
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 3 October 2021 and 6 March 2022.

Het Residentie Orkest 'The Residents', music education for children aged eight to twelve, 2024-2025
The Residents is the Residentie Orkest's prime educational project for children aged between eight and twelve. Every year, hundreds of children from disadvantaged neighbourhoods in The Hague are given the opportunity to develop themselves and broaden their horizons through music. The project involves eight primary schools in disadvantaged neighbourhoods in The Hague and covers a period of four years. Children are acquainted with music, learn to play an instrument, have weekly music lessons, practice at school and play together in an orchestra. In addition, they can take part in Stadsorkest The Residence orchestra in which children from all parts of The Hague make music together after school every week. Over the coming years The Residents will concentrate on further growth in the number of schools and in the Stadsorkest. The Residents Academy is also being intensified and expanded for secondary school pupils who would like to play their instrument in an orchestra but have (often financial) difficulty doing regular music lessons or joining a youth orchestra

The Turing Foundation is contributing a total of € 75,000 towards this musical education project (of which, €25,000 in 2024).

Het Leerorkest Het Leerorkest, 2024-2025
The Leerorkest (founded in 2005) wants to give as many children as possible the opportunity of discovering how much fun it is to play an instrument and make music together. They do so by giving primary school pupils weekly music lessons, given by professional music teachers. The children are acquainted with (classical) music, learn to play a musical instrument and can participate in after-school talent orchestras and follow-up programmes at secondary school. Some 5,000 children in Amsterdam are taking part in more than 30 Leerorkest orchestras. They are loaned their instrument for free from the National Leerorkest Instrument Depot, which was set up by the Leerorkest and manages some 8,000 musical instruments.

The successful Leerorkest concept is being expanded around the Netherlands in the coming years. The aim is to come to a well-structured organisation, operating across the country, that links, renews and supports a network of music organisations for children with knowledge and instruments. The focus is on children growing up in disadvantaged neighbourhoods.

The Turing Foundation is contributing a total of € 60,000 over three years towards upscaling the Leerorkest into the Leerorkest Nederland.

Nederlands Philharmonisch Orkest 'Welcome to the Orchestra - the premier league!, education for primary school and special needs schools, 2024-2026
Welcome to the Orchestra is the education program of the Netherlands Philharmonic Orchestra (NedPho) for primary schools and special needs schools. During five weeks children are provided with a varied program that stimulates their musical, creative and social development. By means of this 3-year program NedPho offers 5,050 children from group 5 to 7 from the greater Amsterdam region a unique and inspiring encounter with orchestras and a valuable first-hand experience with classical music. Soccer is the theme for the 2024-2026 edition. Students will discover the resemblances between a symphony orchestra and a soccer team. The theme evokes positive associations for both boys, girls and teachers and thereby strengthens the musical education. During this edition students start composing themselves as well. The project provides students the freedom for creative and musical development, within the framework of the teaching materials. The students play a decisive role in this project as their compositions will play a part during the big final concert.

The Turing Foundation is contributing €60.000 towards this musical education project (of which €20.000 during the school year 2023-2024)

Prinses Christina ConcoursClassic Express 'Classic Express', Prinses Christina Concours, 2023
The Princess Christina Competition (founded in 1967) aims to acquaint all children and young people in the Netherlands with (classical) music. It wants to stimulate and support their musical talent. One of the Princess Christina Competition's most appealing educational activities is the Classic Express: an extendible truck with technological features creates a real concert experience for children. In this driving concert hall primary school pupils (aged four to twelve) experience the value of music, they are inspired to make music and they experience the fun of performing. The concerts are interactive and informative. They are given by winners of the competition, whose young age means they have easy contact with the children. The Classic Express visits regular and special-needs schools throughout the Netherlands, and explicitly looks for schools in vulnerable neighbourhoods when choosing schools.

The Turing Foundation is contributing € 22,000 towards the Classic Express in 2023.

Noord Nederlands Orkest Pieter Roelf Youth Concert, North Netherlands Symphony Orchestra, 2023
The North Netherlands Symphony Orchestra has organised the Pieter Roelf Youth Concerts every year since 1999: live performances by a symphony orchestra with high-quality classical music for school children (9-12 years-old) in the three northern Dutch provinces of Friesland, Drenthe and Groningen. A total of 8,000 children visit one of the eight concert halls in the north of the Netherlands with their classes. The performance for the 2023 edition of the Pieter Roelf Youth Concerts is entitled 'Concert for Rafiq' and is about a nine-year-old girl who has to flee her country. A topical theme, conveying in an appropriate and sensitive way what it is like to live in war and to have to flee your country. The music is based on Mahler's Symphony No. 1. The concert is interactive and children take part with singing, rhythmic texts, body percussion and movement. The project also gives teaching material for five preparatory lessons in class.

The Turing Foundation is contributing € 10,000 towards the youth concerts, which will be performed between 1 and 16 June 2023.

Stichting Klassiekfabriek Klassifest, Paradiso, Amsterdam, 2023
Stichting Klassiekfabriek has been organising the Klassifest festival 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 managed to do so successfully. Its concept: all Klassifest concerts last a maximum of half an hour, the bar is open and there are no seats in the hall. The venue (the pop concert venue Paradiso) and the short concerts give the audience the opportunity to listen to various kinds of classical music and different musicians in a shorter time. After successful editions in 2017, 2018 and 2019, Klassifest was unfortunately cancelled in 2020, 2021 and 2022 because of the Covid-19 pandemic. Klassifest 2023 is planned for 15 April 2023, and together with the Conservatory of Amsterdam an interesting programme has been put together, with performances by the Dutch National Opera Academy, the Symphony Orchestra of the Conservatory of Amsterdam, Nieuw Amsterdams Klarinet Kwartet, Slagwerk Den Haag, violinist Merel Vercammen, the Dianto Reed Quintet, 3violas and Soheil Shayesteh.

The Turing Foundation is contributing € 5,000 towards this festival, which will take place on 15 April 2023.

Prinses Christina Concours 'Choose your instrument', Prinses Christina Concours, 2023
The Princess Christina Competition (PCC) aims to acquaint all children and young people in the Netherlands with (classical) music and then stimulates and supports them so that they can develop their musical talents as much as possible. Years ago PCC developed the Choose Your Instrument (CYI) platform, which caters for the space between being inspired by music (via the project Classic Express) and the practical next step of choosing an instrument and a teacher, (optional) financing and a first music lesson. Flyers referring to the website are handed out after Classic Express sessions, but the platform is now outdated and urgently requires an update. PCC is focusing on developing an active database with thousands of accredited music teachers across the Netherlands, good search functions, information about financial support, and making CYI more user-friendly. A renewed CYI will enable PCC to better monitor and support the impact of Classic Express. PCC is also looking for strategic partnerships as the aim of CYI is to be of value to the entire sector. Other organisations involved in music education/participation (including professional orchestras) are being invited to joining CYI as a partner. With their own landing page in their own style, organisations can use CYI for useful data reports for impact monitoring and contribute towards the further development of their education projects.

The Turing Foundation is contributing € 25,000 in 2022 towards the modernisation of Choose Your Instrument.

Nationale Opera & Ballet Dutch National Opera and Ballet, Bus transport to school matinees, 2022-2025
The mission of the Dutch National Opera & Ballet (NOB) is for everyone to experience the magic of opera and ballet and it welcomes visitors of all ages. The NOB focuses particularly on young people: it wants every school-going child (in both primary and secondary education) to have the opportunity to experience what it is like to be moved by a beautifully sung story or a magnificent dance experience. School matinees are an important part of the programme for primary schools: extra performances of specially selected opera and ballet productions exclusively for schools from across the Netherlands. The school matinees have proved very popular, but transport to the theatre is an organisational and financial barrier to many schools outside Amsterdam. By providing bus transport the NOB wants to offer a structural solution to this problem and reach primary school children from all over the country.

The Turing Foundation is contributing € 115,800 towards bus transport to the special Dutch National Opera & Ballet school matinees, which will take place between September 2020 and June 2025.

Noord Nederlands Orkest Pieter Roelf Youth Concerts 'Arcadia', North Netherlands Symphony Orchestra, 2022
The North Netherlands Symphony Orchestra has organised the Pieter Roelf Youth Concerts every year since 1999: live concerts with high-quality classical music for school children (9-12 years-old) in the Netherlands’ three northern provinces of Friesland, Drenthe and Groningen.

The Turing Foundation is supporting the Pieter Roelf Youth Concert 2022 with a contribution of € 10,000. The COVID-19 crisis led to the postponement of the ‘Concert for Rafiq’ programme, originally planned for May and June 2020, to 2021 and then to its cancellation in 2021. Our donation is now being used for the performance ‘Arcadia’ in 2022, when the symphony orchestra can once more perform at full strength. In June 2022 Arcadia will be staged 24 times in the Netherlands’ three northern provinces.

Organisatie Oude Muziek Festival Oude Muziek, Utrecht, 2022
The Festival Oude Muziek ('Early Music Festival') is the biggest early music festival in the world, attracting around 65,000 visitors a year. The festival's theme in 2018 is 'The Burgundy Lifestyle'. The inspiration was historian Johan Huizinga's book Herfsttj der Middeleeuwen (The Autumn of the Middle Ages; 1918), which is being used to translate Burgundian court culture - in which Franco-Flemish polyphony blossomed, and became the model for European music - and the history of the Burgundian mentality into a prospectus for the festival.

The Turing Foundation supports Festival Oude Muziek during the pandemic 2020-2022 with € 6,000.

Strijkkwartet Biënnale Amsterdam String Quartet Biennial Amsterdam, 2021-2022
In 2022 the String Quartet Biennial Amsterdam, the world's biggest string quartet festival, took place in a reduced form. The continuing uncertainty about COVID-19 measures led to the cancellation of this festival. With radio broadcasts, a live stream from New York and a last-minute live concert, the Biennial's third edition - the COVID-19 edition - will probably go down in history as the most memorable edition. The Turing Foundation supported the first two editions of the Biennial in 2018 and 2020.

The Turing Foundation supported the Biennial organisation during the COVID-19 pandemic with a contribution of € 2,000.

'The Residents' is the Residentie Orkest's prime educational project for children between the ages of eight and twelve. For ten years now, hundreds of children from disadvantaged neighbourhoods in The Hague have been given the opportunity to develop and broaden their horizons through music. Children learn to play an instrument in a three-year course at primary schools. The participants are given an extensive introduction to musical instruments, visit a rehearsal by the orchestra, meet a musician and visit a performance. Then they choose 'their' instrument and are given weekly instrumental music lessons in a group by professional music teachers.

The Turing Foundation is contributing € 20,000 towards this project in the 2021-2022 academic year.

Nederlands Philharmonisch Orkest 'Welcome to the Orchestra', classical music for children aged eight to eleven, 2021-2022
Welkom bij het Orkest (Welcome to the Orchestra) introduces primary school pupils aged eight to eleven to classical music and the symphony orchestra. The programme's central theme is a weekly vlog in which presenter Pepijn Gunneweg looks for a piece of music he has heard somewhere. He gradually becomes fascinated by how this music is made and he discovers the musicians, instruments and eventually the (Netherlands Philharmonic) orchestra behind the music. Pupils prepare in class for a visit to the Netherlands Philharmonic Orchestra with teaching materials, songs, body percussion, conducting, musicians visiting the class and music lessons via live stream. And after five weeks they are ready for a real concert by the entire Netherlands Philharmonic Orchestra at the NedPhO-Koepel in Amsterdam East.

The Turing Foundation is contributing € 20,000 towards this project in the 2021-2022 academic year.

SeaSession School performances of Circus Charms Music Theatre Production, 2020-2022
Frank and René Groothof return to the theatre with the project 'Circus Charms', a music theatre production based on the stories, plays and poems of Russia's greatest absurdist writer Daniil Charms (1905-1942). Charms' work has been adapted into a performance consisting of a mix of circus, storytelling, brothers' quarrels and film. The common thread is classical music: the ensemble SeaSession is performing chamber music by unknown avant-garde Soviet composers from the 1920s - Alexei Zhivotov, Alexander Mosolov, Arno Babajanian, Vladimir Deshyevov and Leonid Polovinkin - contemporaries of Charms. A total of eleven family performances and six school performances are being performed.

The Turing Foundation is contributing €15,000 towards this project, which will take place between 19 September and 29 December 2020. The contribution is earmarked for the school performances.
