Steinbeisser is a new temporary modern art space in Amsterdam that stages various exhibitions, performances and experiments, bringing together a diverse range of artistic expressions, as well as selling a unique selection of contemporary jewellery, design and fashion garments to the public. The project was created in cooperation with the Cultural Embassay of Lloyd Hotel which stages topical cultural events for the Hotel’s guests and visitors, primarily based on their personal luggage or what is going on in town at the time.
