A young creative platform, based in Amsterdam


For the first time ever, Paradiso turned into an open house, on Thursday September 13th, 2018. That year Paradiso celebrated their 50th anniversary: the perfect occasion for a multidisciplinary exposition, talks and a party organized by MOAM.


25 young artists exhibited their work inspired by the concerts, the authentic history and the highlights of the iconic pop temple. Art, creative expression and freedom. Sex, drugs & rock ‘n roll of the year 2018!


MOAM offered 25 young talents the stage of Paradiso and gave them the opportunity to create art in complete creative freedom, inspired by Paradiso in its broadest sense. These diverse and unique works were exhibited throughout the building; from the iconic balcony to the entrance and from the wild basement to the legendary stage: art everywhere.

In addition to these 25 talents, MOAM hosted various talks with managing director of Paradiso Mark Minkman, Emma Wortelboer, Nellie Benner, Rens Polman and Bo Hanna.


After the exposition, MOAM celebrated Paradiso’s anniversary party with everyone: sex, drugs & rock ‘n roll of the year 2018. Both Paradiso and MOAM offered young talent a platform. The two combined their powers for this unique event where creativity, diversity and sex came together.
