28 JANUARY 2019

WORK, BODY, LEISURE closing event and afterlives

21 NOVEMBER 2018

The Dutch contribution to the 16th International Architecture Exhibition of La Biennale di Venezia, will travel to Het Nieuwe Instituut in Rotterdam, where it will be open to the public from 21 December. The installation will chart a journey through a series of architectures in the Netherlands and beyond in which bodies are categorized and transformed: offices, playgrounds, farms, factories and virtual spaces, windows, beds, and doors. Scenarios that look familiar—if rarely accessible or seemingly banal—but are nevertheless at the epicenter of the transformation.

This Fall, Het Nieuwe Instituut temporarily transforms into a design archive. Since the late 1980s design from the Netherlands has been world-renowned under the banner of Dutch Design. But what about the memory of Dutch design today? What will be preserved for the future? Why, how and by whom?

Lest We Forget

6 SEPTEMBER 2018

How do we preserve and share Dutch design heritage? What form should a collection of Dutch design take? And what does this mean for developments in design and digital culture today? This autumn, Het Nieuwe Instituut spotlights the memory of design disciplines. Three different presentations and an extensive events programme each examine the remains of our material and spatial design culture from their own perspective.
