Hack a Construction Fence!

Construction sites aren’t the most exciting places. They’re omnipresent in the Amstel III area in Southeast Amsterdam, where we’re running the HOBU project. In collaboration with local real estate developers and construction companies, we’ve made 100 construction fences available for displaying visual art.

100 Fences, 24 Hours

During the Hekkenthon on 21st May, three visual artists get 24 hours to create a design for the construction fences. The winner will get the chance to exhibit his/her work throughout the entire district. In case you’re interested in participating, please drop a line at contact@hobu.amsterdam. Deadline for submissions is 10th May.
