SEXYLAND World

SEXYLAND World is nothing less than a declaration of love for the city, and you are more than welcome to experience it.

SEXYLAND World is a club, an art house, a hangout, 2 restaurants, a hairdresser and a gallery. A labyrinth of diverse cultural, creative, and societal initiatives with a single entrance and a shared vision. The building serves as a necessary place for cultural freedom, inclusivity, and creative experimentation. No closed doors, secluded studios, or offices, but 400m² of organized chaos. You can wander from an authentic Chinese Sichuan restaurant to a youth hangout with Moroccan tea and games, from a boundless Art Castle to Amsterdam’s most beautiful terrace with Surinam fusion cuisine, from the Iranian 65+ community to a club with a different owner every day. Flexible and noisy, accessible and diverse, with high and low quality but always unpretentious

SEXYLAND World is an attempt to connect (sub)culture, art, and other expressions of enthusiasm across all layers of society. Solidarity and radical heterogeneity form the foundation, whilst unexpected encounters are encouraged. Each initiative has its own space, programming, and style, but we share the entrance, finance, idealism, and audience. It’s a place that embraces experimentation and unpredictability, prioritizing the collective over the individual. It’s also a final attempt to resist the increasing conformity and suffocating market forces that seem to deprive contemporary Amsterdam of its soul, humanity, and diversity. SEXYLAND World is nothing less than a declaration of love for the city, and you are more than welcome!

SEXYLAND WORLD IS:
– SEXYLAND
– ANDISHE
– FACE SPORT CLUB
– KUKRU
– NO LIMITS! ART CASTLE
– ORDER SICHUAN

SEXYLAND World

is a place to discover Amsterdam’s dynamic and forward-thinking art scene.
