The Hoodie - The Last Truly Political Garment

6 AUGUST 2019

For four months from 19 May 2019, Het Nieuwe Instituut’s programming will be investigating more-than-human knowledge. 100 years on from the foundation of Bauhaus, under the banner Neuhaus, we are opening a temporary academy taking visitors on an exploration of what it could mean for humanity to learn to experience the world without putting itself at the centre.
