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.
