the archive in-out center about

Curators of the In-Out Center Archives are Tineke Reijnders and Corinne Groot.

The plans to set up this website took shape during the In-Out Center exhibition at De Appel, Amsterdam which took place from november 15 – december 11, 2016. Original artworks, documents and stories were assembled and presented to the public as a temporary collection.
There is no physical In-Out Center archive; the documentation and artworks were discovered at scattered sources and belong mainly to the artists involved, collectors, galleries and institutions. The online archive aims to make the research about In-Out Center tangible and accessible to an international audience. 

Tineke Reijnders took care of the texts.
Tineke Reijnders is an art historian and critic. She has written on contemporary art for several magazines, specialising on artists' initiatives. Dutch weekly De Groene Amsterdammer has published her texts on artist-run spaces in the eighties. Reijnders intends to continue researching independent non-profit artists' initiatives, shifting them out of the critical shade.The In-Out Center is the oldest artists' initiative in the Netherlands, and the first to be presented in this context.
Reijnders acknowledges the help of Hetty Huisman (1941–2017), who put her on the track to pursue this project. She is grateful to all involved artists for their information.

Corinne Groot is responsible for tracing, researching, assembling and describing the documentation.
Groot is a historian and curator. She was co-founder of Zapp Magazine, an international artzine released on VHS videotape in the 90’s. Through Zapp Productions she has curated and designed exhibitions for museums and galleries, and researches art inventories for artists and collectors. Recent projects include the inventory of the works of Miguel-Angel Cardenas/Michel Cardena and a retrospective exhibition Cardena Warming
