Exhibitionprogramme
AMMODO ✕ P/////AKT
2015 - present

Every year P/////AKT presents an exhibition series consisting of six conceptually connected solo exhibitions by emerging artists. The series offers talented young artists the opportunity to develop new work, gain experience in setting up a solo exhibition and the chance to attract a relevant audience. Participating artists include Kasper Bosmans, Raphael Langmair, Tim Hollander and Michiel Hilbrink. Ammodo has supported the exhibition programme of P/////AKT since 2015 because it contributes to the artistic development of the participating artists and contributes to the visibility of their work.

RAW Academy
AMMODO ✕ Raw Material Company
2016 - 2020

RAW Academy is a postgraduate course for international artists, curators and critics in Dakar, initiated by Koyo Kouoh, curator and founder of Raw Material Company. In Senegal, the traditional academies are dominant and there are few opportunities for young artists who have completed their training to continue to develop in an innovative and independent manner. Ammodo supports RAW Academy as a way of contributing to the creation of a high-quality postgraduate institution in Senegal and promoting the exchange between different artistic media.

Paradocs
AMMODO ✕ IDFA
2012 - 2015

In Paradocs IDFA shows experimental and artistic documentaries. In order to respond to the increase of interdisciplinary practice of visual arts and film, IDFA wants to expand and strengthen the Paradocs video art programme over the coming years. IDFA will do so partly by programming a series in collaboration with Amsterdam Art and the Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam. This programme will present new work by Sander Breure & Witte van Hulzen, Barbara Visser, Nicolas Provost and Mark Cousins, amongst others. Ammodo supports Paradocs because through this programme IDFA is offering an alternative, high-quality platform for showcasing video art.

Masterpiece
AMMODO ✕ De Nieuwe Kerk
2011 - present

Since 2011 De Nieuwe Kerk Amsterdam presents an annual series of exhibitions with international masterpieces. Each year Masterpiece exhibits a piece of art of the highest quality in the church space. A prerequisite for selection is that the work has either never been seen in the Netherlands before, or at least not for a very long time. In addition to being of a very high quality the pieces chosen are also of a spiritual or religious nature. Ammodo supports Masterpiece to contribute to the development of exhibition concepts in De Nieuwe Kerk Amsterdam.
