Atelier Nelly and Theo van Doesburg

Archive, Exhibition

11 Jul 2020 — 03 Oct 2021

A new look at the work of Nelly and Theo van Doesburg is possible thanks to the restoration of their architecture archive. The exhibition recognises Nelly as a key figure in the consolidation of the reputation of Van Doesburg and De Stijl. The magnificent focus of the exhibition will be on the couple’s most striking joint project: their studio-house in the Parisian suburb of Meudon. Sketches, drawings and scale models rarely (if ever) exhibited before reveal the house’s rich history.

Lithium

Research, Exhibition

20 Sep 2020 — 15 Aug 2021

Conceived as a spa resort, the exhibition Lithium highlights the beneficial and destructive aspects of the eternal human search for energy. Researchers, designers and artists reflect on the role of the chemical element lithium in powering today’s economy. How many times can we recharge our batteries without addressing the causes of depletion, in both human bodies and the planet?

Exhibition

Art on Display 1949-69

Exhibition

04 Oct 2020 — 06 Jun 2021

How do we present art? And how do we look at it, as viewers? Most museum visitors look at artworks without noticing how they are displayed. In contrast, Art on Display 1949-69 focuses not on artworks themselves, but on the way they are presented. For the first time, the exhibition brings together some of the most progressive postwar exhibition designs by architects in the form of 1:1 reconstructions. Featuring displays by Franco Albini and Franca Helg, Lina Bo Bardi, Aldo van Eyck, Carlo Scarpa and Alison and Peter Smithson.

Borrow an EVJ Museum Bag!

Elisa van Joolen x Het Nieuwe Instituut

06 May — 06 Nov 2021

What happens to the idea of ​​value when an everyday consumable becomes an object to take care of, even when you don’t own it? In May 2021, designer Elisa van Joolen and Het Nieuwe Instituut will present the EVJ: the institute's first official museum bag, made from recycled melted plastic from disposable carrier bags. Users never own the EVJ, but take care of it for a time. Prospective borrowers can complete and sign a loan agreement via the website, in which they agree to adopt an EVJ bag for six months.
