A home for every
thing we love

It used to be a theater.
A daylight one.
We’ve kept the space,
and the light,
much of the grandeur,
and a little of the theatricals,
to create the NewWerktheater.


Enter through the front door and you will find yourself here. Order a coffee, grab a magazine, take a seat and enjoy our menu with daily changes. Every Friday Night we’re open for dining and cocktails, never the same menu, always a great night.

On Friday 24th of November, One Shot & Halal will be exhibiting 70 one-of-a-kind shots from Lotte van Raalte, Johan Kramer and Olya Oleinic at the NewWerktheater.

One Shot is the first gallery of its kind and celebrates the fragile beauty of analogue, by offering exclusive 1/1 prints from some of the world’s best photographers. Each shot is printed in an edition of one, after which the negatives are destroyed – making it the most limited edition photo series ever.

For their third edition One Shot partnered with the bespoke film production company and photography agency Halal, and asked three of their photographers to shoot a single roll of film, however they want. 

Lotte van Raalte

Lotte van Raalte is a constant observer far more interested in real life characters, than picture perfect models. Her photography has a refreshingly clean cut, no nonsense approach to it — topped with a splash of individuality. For Edition Three, Lotte shot a roll of Kodak Portra 160 on a Canon EOS Rebel 2000.

Johan Kramer

Johan Kramer is an advertising icon turned exquisite filmmaker and photographer — a terrific storyteller who loves the documentary-format. There is always a sense of intimacy, honesty and purity that has become Johan’s trademark over the years. For Edition Three, Johan shot a roll of Adox Color Implosion 100 on a Nikon F5.

Olya Oleinic

Olya Oleinic is a meticulous composer with an intriguing, visceral approach, usually executed in a combination of eye-popping colors. Her often extreme images are largely inspired by her never-ending pursuit of the new. For Edition Three, Olya shot a roll of Kodak Portra 400 120 mm on a Mamiya RZ67.

70 exclusive 1/1 shots are available here (https://www.oneshoteditions.com/shop)– 24 from Van Raalte, 36 from Johan Kramer and 10 from Olya Oleinic. The shots are sold sight unseen and listed in the order they were shot. Once a shot is claimed, it’s gone forever. The photos can be seen for the first time and picked up at the exhibition.

Time: 7.30 PM – 11.30 PM

If you have an invite, be sure to RSVP as spots are limited. If you don’t have one yet but would like to join, you can send an e-mail to: one@oneshoteditions.com.



…,staat are unveiling their latest collaboration, a limited range of art objects with fashion designer Jackie Villevoye. ‘Aesthetic Memories’ see geometrical patterns juxtaposed with the craft of hand embroidery. Each of the 30 pieces are hand embroidered in Villevoye’s atelier of master embroiderers in the Indian province of Uttar Pradesh.

Villevoye is renowned for her hand embroidered designs, as the lady behind the embroidery for Comme des Garçons’ women’s ready-to-wear collections from 2013 to S/S’17. Following her collaboration with CDG’s Rei Kawakubo, Villevoye has gotten together with …,staat to turn her creations from on the body to on the wall.

We’re holding the exhibition here at the NewWerktheater from 1st December – 1st March 2018

Come join us and see this example of a rare craft being kept alive.
