Kunsthal KAdE participates in the nationwide Unlocked/Reconnected exhibition with one work in the entrance hall.

The Unlocked/Reconnected exhibition aims to shed light on different notions of the concepts of "house" and "home. It is an initiative that connects the most diverse 'houses for art': museums, presentation institutions, galleries, artists' initiatives and corporate collections. The starting point for Unlocked/Reconnected is the idea of solidarity, the will to reflect together on what is (t)home.

Unlocked/Reconnected spans a wide range of venues throughout the Netherlands, each presenting one work of its own choosing - be it a painting, sculpture, performance or video installation. Each institution installs the work of choice in "the hall of the house," or entrance area of that location.

Kunsthal KAdE participates in the work Uden Birds by Tom Claassen. In 2010, Kunsthal KAdE (then on Smallepad) showed a solo by Tom Claassen. It included a large floor sculpture of sand lions, the Lavatory cubicals, a rabbit on the roof and in front of the door a horse. These Uden birds were first located in the entrance of the Smallepad but in 2015 they flew along to the new location on the Eemplein. Here they have nestled - again in the entrance - on a stick, cozy together, defying the new normal of the 1.5 meter distance with dignity.
