Nieuw Dakota is an exhibition space for contemporary art located at the NDSM wharf in Amsterdam. The experimental program includes exhibitions, performances, tours, and educational activities, aiming to challenge both artists and visitors and broaden their perspectives on the world.

Since the beginning of 2023, Nieuw Dakota has introduced a new artistic program called 1 x 2. Within this concept, one theme is exhibited in two different and almost opposite ways. The current theme is ‘giving and taking,’ with the exhibition (+ Supplementary Fee) currently highlighting the aspect of giving. This solo exhibition by Thordur Hans Baldursson offers a critical view on the challenges faced by artists and cultural institutions in a time when art subsidies are increasingly under pressure. As the commercialization of the arts seems inevitable for survival, visitors are asked to pay supplementary fees to view the artworks.
