Stroom Den Haag has appointed Alexandra Landré as artistic director and Bas Mulder as business director. The center for visual arts announced this with a press release on Monday.
The new directors, who will start on 1 May, will jointly succeed Arno van Roosmalen. His position became untenable after a November NRC-publication on transgressive behavior by artist Julian Andeweg, who exhibited under his direction at Stroom.
