Nieuw Dakota is an exhibition space for contemporary art, located on the NDSM wharf in Amsterdam. The experimental programme consisting of exhibitions, performances, guided tours, education and lectures aims to broaden the visitor's world.

From 2023, a new artistic programme will start: 1 x 2. Within this concept, one subject will be visualised in two diverse, almost opposite exhibitions. The first topic to be discussed is the relationship between humans and animals. The exhibition Pigs and Sheep and Beasts takes a radical position that highlights one side of the coin: how can we humans make better use of animals and employ them even more for our own comfort? The second exhibition within this theme, Four Legs Good, Two Legs Bad, will tell the other side of the story. Then the animals will get their voices back.
