The HCAK (Hague Centre for Contemporary Art) was the first artist initiative in The Hague and for long time one of the few in the Netherlands.

The history of the HCAK is a fundamental chapter of the cultural history of The Hague and is an important source of inspiration for the current initiatives in the city.

One generation later, six The Hague-based art institutions engage in reflecting on the ideas of the HCAK, which seem to be anything but dated. In this project by the name HCAK Revisited Heden, GEMAK/Vrije Academie, 1646, JCA DE KOK, Ruimtevaart and Nest take, individually, a closer look with a contemporary take to a few of the projects by the HCAK.

Invited to manage the space of 1646, the still active organisation of the HCAK chose to present 1646: a historic reversal. Clara Pallí Monguilod, Floris Kruidenberg, Nico Feragnoli and Johan Gustavsson in collaboration with Philip Peters and Rien Monshouwer.
