Het Nieuwe Instituut announces an open call for three research fellows to work in residence from September 2017 to February 2018.
Rafaël Rozendaal questions the anonymity and ephemerality of the screensaver and is fascinated by its subversive, playful and diffuse character. He creates an immersive space for the visitor that captures the extraordinary visual language of this virtually lost medium.
Sonneveld House (1933) is one of the best-preserved houses in the Dutch Functionalist style. The villa was designed in 1933 by architecture firm Brinkman and Van der Vlugt for Albertus Sonneveld, a director of the Van Nelle Factory.
Het Nieuwe Instituut manages 600 archives and collections of Dutch architects, urban planners, professional associations and educational institutions, comprising a total of some 4,000,000 documents. The collection is available for research in the Study Centre.
Designing the Surface, an exhibition where the final topcoat targets the senses, investigates a compendium of artefacts over five sets: lustre, patina, faux, teflon and agency.
Het Nieuwe Instituut’s Thursday Night programme addresses varied issues related to architecture, design and digital culture. Each week there is a lecture or talk show, a pop-in expo, a Thursday Bite and various partner programmes, as well as a chance to visit the exhibitions.
