ART & PSYCHIATRY - Residency in the psychiatric institutions the Willem Arntsz Hoeve/Altrecht
Het Vijfde Seizoen (The Fifth Season) is a residence for artists on the grounds of the psychiatric institution the Willem Arntsz Hoeve in Den Dolder, the Netherlands. Professional artists can live and work here for a season.
Since 1998 many artists have lives and workes in Het Vijfde Seizoen. It is an inspiring place and an extreme experience. The line between sick or not sick sometimes seems to disappear fot the artists and the patients. It is remarkable to see how each artist picks his own angle and approaches the psychiatry from a totally personal point of view.
By inviting a different artist every season to come live and work, a contribution is made to our goal of bringing society closes to psychiatry and breaking through the closed character of the grounds. Through their works od art the artists contribute to the imaging of the psychiatric patient and psychiatry in general.
