Arts initiative SPOONK stands for innovative formsof contemporary art. With an artist-in-residency, exhibition space and projects in the city and province, we have been a young, new platform in Leeuwarden since 2019. We run SPOONK Art Cantina an Art stage with – Coffee Cake & Art to Go- (or Stay-zelf weten…) and a conceptstore located at the Kleine Hoogstraat 17A on de highest mount of Leeuwarden. We’re open from wednesday to saturdays from 13-17h.
How can we look differently at ingrained behaviors and fixed mindsets and bake the world a better place?
With performances, publications, drawings, installations, tours, videos and educational projects, Caro Kroon expresses the desire to offer new perspectives on thought and behavior.
She incorporates this into both the visual aspects of her work and by engaging in direct interaction with her audience. In all of her diverse work forms, Kroon uses humor to address major themes in a lighthearted manner. With humor and absurdity she gives meaning to the daily routine and offers the audience a different perspective in an innocent way.
SPOONK was established by Caro Kroon in 2000 as a place to accommodate the various activities that she has undertaken as an independent artist, performer and theatre maker since her bachelor in Fine Arts at Willem de Kooning Academy Rotterdam. In 2020 she graduated here for her Master’s degree in Arts & Education at the Piet Zwart institute Rotterdam. Over the years, the focus of her business has crystallized to working on her (community) theatre projects,art exhibitions and related actions.
