SCHUNCK*, situated in Heerlen at the heart of the Euregion, is a multidisciplinary institute devoted to contemporary visual art, architecture, music, literature and film - and all imaginable crossovers between the disciplines – manifested by means of presentations, collections and educational projects. A modern public library and music school also rank amongst the amenities at SCHUNCK*, both working in modern-day fashion to promote reading enjoyment and musical learning. SCHUNCK* is housed in the historic Glaspaleis, the “glass palace” built by architect Frits Peutz in 1935.

    Canvasses have been used for centuries to create artistic masterpieces. In contemporary art, however, the canvas is more than just medium for paint; it is being continuously reinvented. As a fabric, a texture, and as a workable material. PAINT IT SOFT  is an interactive exhibition that unravels artistic work processes.

    Including works by: Norbert Fiddelers, Romy Finke, Twan Janssen, Fransje Killaars, Jean Lurçat, Rob Scholte, Berend Strik, Helen Verhoeven en Roy Villevoye.
