I See That I See What You Don't See Opens in La XXII Triennale Di Milano

21 FEBRUARY 2019

Op 1 maart 2019 opent I See That I See What You Don’t See, de Nederlandse bijdrage aan de XXII Triennale di Milano. In deze Triënnale onderzoekt curator Paola Antonelli met het thema Broken Nature: Design Takes on Human Survival, welke rol design kan spelen bij het herstellen van de relatie tussen de mens en zijn omgeving, in zowel natuurlijke als sociale ecosystemen. De Nederlandse bijdrage reageert op het overkoepelende thema met een presentatie over onze relatie tot duisternis.

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.

10 OCTOBER 2018

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?
