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.
NewWerktheater Editions are artist and -brave- brand collaborations born to provoke. If you’d like to know more or feel that together we’d create something exceptional.
Work & Event Space
The NewWerktheater has three stellar spaces to make ideas happen. From the intimate Out of Place to the impactful Foyer, there’s a place to fit every happening.
A high ceiling and massive windows make the Photo Studio the spot for photoshoots. Alternatively, swap the soft box for a table and you’ve got a great space for workshops.
An ever changing mini-shop in the form of a cabinet. Shopshopshop is always refreshing, always revolving. From all-time classics to once in a lifetime.

Sunday January 14 we are hosting Food&Film No.3 together with Halal Film and Photography– a matinee brunch + film viewing with the director here to talk about his or her work.
For this edition, we are excited to have award-winning Amsterdam based filmmaker Thomas Vroege with his latest documentary ‘A Stranger Came to Town’:
Complex realities can never be reduced to simple stories of good and evil. Certainly not in the case of the Syria-conflict. Interviews with four inhabitants of Aleppo form the backbone of this cinematic essay, each share their personal experiences.
Thomas Vroege is most known for being honoured with the European Film Award for his documentary ‘9 Days From my Window’. Graduating from Sint Joost Academy of Arts with short documentary ‘The Son & The Stranger’, he entered the world of filmmaking with a win in the The Dutch Film Fund’s ‘Wildcard Award’.
In addition to being a documentary director, Vroege also works as an editor and cinematographer. He was an advisor to the Dutch Cultural Media Fund, and is currently a board member of the Dutch Directors Guild and Docking Station.

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.
