AGA LAB cooperates with various organizations; in the field of printing techniques, residencies, other cultural disciplines and education. Both locally and (inter) nationally.


In October 2015, almost twenty Amsterdam art institutions united and founded Platform for Development Institutions (P_Oi). This sector works with young artists and new makers. They are creators of culture, new forms and experimental art. The institutions are at the beginning of the chain with a spin-off for the cultural field. Goals of the POI include entering into crossovers with other sectors and working together on overarching themes such as cultural education and Amsterdam promotion.

Members of the platform are (in alphabetical order): AGA LAB, Architectuurcentrum Amsterdam, CBK Zuidoost, De Appel, Don’t Hit Mama, Framer Framed, If I Can’t Dance, I Don’t Want To Be Part Of Your Revolution, LIMA, M4gastatelier, Mediamatic, NDSM-became, P ///// AKT, Pakhuis de Zwijger, Rijksakademie van visual arts, STEIM, Submarine, The Beach, Veem House for Performance, Waag and WOW Amsterdam.


Currently (May 2023) the garden in the courtyard of the AGA LAB is being improved. We are working on new collaborations and workshops will be given again in the near future. Painting Plants is led by Aster Kruisbrink and Ruben de Haas. Together they will continue and renew this special initiative of Naan Rijks.



The AGA LAB is structurally financially supported by the Social Development Department of the Municipality of Amsterdam.
