Het Vijfde Seizoen: Spring residency: Jan Adriaans (DAI, 2015) Gerwin Luijendijk and Marianna Maruyama (DAI, 2014)
Artist Residency in psychiatry
Het Vijfde Seizoen (The Fifth Season) is a residence for artists in psychiatry. Professional artists work here for a season.
Since 1998 many artists have worked in Het Vijfde Seizoen. It is an inspiring place. The line between sick or not sick sometimes seems to disappear for 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 work at the residency, a contribution is made to our goal of bringing society closer to psychiatry. Through their works of art the artists contribute to the imaging of the psychiatric patient and psychiatry in general.
The artists Jan Adriaans, Gerwin Luijendijk and Marianna Maruyama will be working in The Fifth Season from April through June 2018. Their research will be about language in psychiatry.
