By invitation only
Het Vijfde Seizoen (The Fifth Season) is a residence for artists on the grounds of the psychiatric institution the Willem Arntsz Hoeve in Den Dolder, the Netherlands. Professional artists can live and work here for a season.
Since 1998 many artists have lived and worked in Het Vijfde Seizoen. It is an inspiring place and an extreme experience. De 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 come live and work, a contribution is made to Het Vijfde Seizoen's goal of bringing society closer to psychiatry, and breaking through the closed character of the grounds. Through their works of art the artists contribute to the imaging of the psychiatric patient and psychiatry in general.
