 Atelier Nelly and Theo Van Doesburg offers a fresh look at the work of Nelly and Theo van Doesburg, made possible thanks to the restoration of their architecture archive. The exhibition recognises Nelly as a key figure in consolidating the reputation of Van Doesburg and De Stijl. The magnificent focus of the exhibition is on the couple’s most striking joint project: their studio home in the Parisian suburb of Meudon. Huub Breuer of Disclosing Architecture will show us around and share his insights.

Disclosing Architecture

Because of its special cultural and historical value, the Van Doesburg collection has been extensively researched, preserved and restored where necessary within the extensive Disclosing Architecture restoration programme. Disclosing Architecture looks at archive collections from possible new perspectives, in order to reformulate the collection policy and provide new input concerning the valuation of historical sources.
