Irregular (office) opening hours & visits in September 2017

In the process of making our transition from Casco – Office for Art, Design and Theory into Casco Art Institute: Working for the Commons, we are temporarily working behind closed doors. This “behind-the-scenes” work includes preparations for two upcoming projects. The Army of Love Training Camp workshop series with writer Ingo Niermann, artist Dora Garcia, and many others will take place 11-14 October 2017. The subsequent exhibition by and with Army of Love soldiers opens on 25 November 2017. On the same date, we will also see the opening of the exhibition Library of Unread Books by Singaporean artist Heman Chong.

In the meantime, a few publications are also on their way: Drawn In Drawn Out: Studying the Commons, conceived and written by the study group formed on the occasion of the exhibition and study program We Are the Time Machines: Time and Tools for Commoning (WTM); 365 Days of Invisible Work, developed with Werker Collective; and Site for Unlearning (Art Organization), with artist and long-time Casco collaborator Annette Krauss. Official launch events for these long-awaited books are in the works, too!

Importantly, we are also working on a new organizational structure and recruiting new members to join our team.

During this period - limited to the month of September - we have decided to operate Casco a bit more nomadically. This means that our headquarters at the beautiful Abraham Dolehof are not always opened and we do not stick to the regular office hours.

If you would like to drop by the office to meet one of us, or to visit our research library and bookshop, please make sure to contact us in advance by sending an e-mail to, or call +31(0)30 231 99 95.

And please save the dates for the occasions mentioned above: further announcements will follow soon!

Accessibility information

For those visiting Casco – Office for Art, Design & Theory for the first time, it might be useful to understand accessibility in our beautiful but challenging building:

- Due to the steps leading to the entrance way and the building’s internal staircases, Casco is not currently wheelchair accessible. We are working towards making Casco an accessible space for wheelchair users in the future.

- The bathroom is a (small) single stall.

- Our mediation material is available in both English and Dutch and our events are typically spoken in English, unless otherwise noted.

Please contact Anne Punt at if you will need some extra help and we can assist you to visit our exhibitions and attend the many events in our multifarious program.
