Koempels is a word from a dialect spoken in Limburg, a province in the south of the Netherlands, and means ‘mineworker’ but also ‘buddy’. The exhibition presents a new generation of a group of painters called ‘Amsterdamse Limburgers’ from the 1950s. In the exhibition, contemporary painting is combined with social and art historical research.
