'The Dutch Assembly', ARCOmadrid, Madrid, Spain, 15–19 February 2012
The Netherlands was the guest 'Focus' country of ARCOmadrid 2012 (15–19 February 2012). With the collaboration of the Mondriaan Fund and the Embassy of the Netherlands in Spain, ARCOmadrid hosted a presentation of a range of Dutch arts organizations curated by Latitudes.

Sited within a specially-commissioned structure by Dutch artist Jasper Niens and designer Thijs Ewalts, 'The Dutch Assembly' consisted of the accumulation of 30 hourly talks, readings, artists presentations, performances, book launches, in conversations and screenings throughout the five days of the fair. Contributions representing art spaces, research initiatives and individuals formed a series of 'depositions' and dispatches analysing cultural practices and policies from the Dutch perspective, as well as reflections of the artistic links between Spain and the Netherlands.
