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 Thursday & Friday Night we’re open for dining and cocktails, never the same menu, always a great night.

Photo Studio

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.

Sunday 25, March we are hosting Food&Film N#5 – a matinee brunch + film viewing with the director here to talk about his or her work.

For the fifth edition, we are excited to have director Vincent Boy Kars here to present his documentary Independent Boy, an experiment in which a young filmmaker directs the life of his best friend.

For a month, the young filmmaker Vincent Boy Kars makes all the decisions for his indecisive friend Metin.
As a first step, he forces Metin to live alone for a month, away from his mother, with whom he has a relationship that borders on too close. Kars wonders to what degree we can mold peoples’ lives. The twentysomething Metin doesn’t really know what to do with himself— his friends consider him smart and creative, but he never applies these traits to actions. It’s striking to see the contrast between Metin and the cheerful youth leaders from his boyhood scouting troop. He’s also very different from his climbing instructor, who teaches him that you have to think about where you’re going— to plan out your steps on your way up the rock wall. But planning isn’t Metin’s thing. Vincent Boy Kars wants to make people think about what a successful life implies. Millennials will recognize a lot in Independent Boy, as will anyone who has ever been in their twenties.

…,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.
