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.

    Liza Wolters - Now is a different back then

    Liza Wolters’ work consists of everyday scenes that appear to be scripted. In a spontaneous moment, a specific game is created that is translated into photographs, videos, book arrangements, and spatial structures. In this exhibition, Wolters – who is originally from this region – will present her previous work in addition to images created on the spot.

    The post-industrials

    After the collapse of the ‘Lange Jan’ chimney, Heerlen turned grey. But in between the cracks in the concrete, new creativity blossomed and new generations paved their own way. Together with Historisch Goud, SCHUNCK* is bringing the rich history of Heerlen’s subcultures to life in this exhibition.
