Our Mission

OSCAM makes room for makers and visitors to be part of a creative community in which we jointly own the story of Amsterdam Southeast and the Netherlands. We realize this social mission as a museum for art, fashion, design, craft and development in Amsterdam. We give substance to this through high-quality presentations and exhibitions, through educational and participatory activities and programs and by bringing the creative process closer to the public.

Curator Statement

At OSCAM we not only curate artists and their works, but also the conversation about them. The Speak Sessions, with which we have distinguished ourselves from the beginning, are the ideal platform for that conversation. The discussion about art and representation, and about who can say what, in which time and place, is in a difficult but necessary phase. The conversation about inclusion is uncomfortable for some. However, this is the time when more voices make themselves heard and claim space, specifically in the world of art and culture.

OSCAM’s ultimate motivation is connection between people, through art, fashion, design, craftsmanship and development. No one is infallible in the search for the right expression and exploration of ideas. We face this steadfastly, with due leniency to human limitations. Ultimately it is about the work that tells the story, that shows the layers of the human experience, that simultaneously gives and is imagination, that touches heart and head. That work is never just ours, but always yours too, moreover ours together, because we give meaning to it collectively. Anyone who wants to participate without excluding others is welcome in Zuidoost, and in the Open Space Contemporary Art Museum.
