In addition to his own practice Torenbosch founded new situation, a non-profit exhibition space for art, theory, and social action and is committed to the notion of art as a public sphere and a political space. While its programme considers the contemporary, new situation also regards how art has been created and experienced in the past, and imagines the shape of its futures.
