Our Mission

OSCAM, short for Open Space Contemporary Art Museum, aims to stimulate and increase the interest in the arts for the young and adult residents of Amsterdam, specifically the Bijlmer. We show high-quality presentations of art, fashion, design, craftsmanship and development, through exhibitions, education and participatory programs. By involving known and unknown creative talents in our exhibitions and programs, OSCAM inspires and fulfils the need for a connection platform with other social art institutes in Amsterdam, the Netherlands and beyond.

Interested to see more? In our ‘Jaarverslag 2020’, you can read all about OSCAM and the things we do and did.

Curator Statement

In collaboration with our partners like PATTA, Bonnefanten, Decoratelier Nationale Opera & Ballet, Amsterdam Museum, Modemuze, Compagnie Theater and HvA, we work on various exhibitions and programs. The products that we offer as OSCAM, elevate these exhibitions to the next level, while keeping them accessible and attractive to the youth.
