De Appel organizes exhibitions, performances, film screenings, lectures and gatherings that cross boundaries with regards to artistic and discursive disciplines. These programs are a means to facilitate artistically and socially relevant dialogues with various cultural and societal organizations, both in Amsterdam and beyond.
The institution is home to a world-renowned curatorial programme and features a prominent archive and library. De Appel is constantly-in-the-making to remain critical towards rapidly changing societal and cultural contexts, both in the Netherlands and abroad.
In 2017 De Appel takes on a renewed, nomadic form. De Appel offices, its Curatorial Programme and its Archive relocate to Broedplaats Lely on the Schipluidenlaan 12 in Amsterdam and will realise a public program at this location, as well as a nomadic exhibition programme throughout the city.
