Tijdelijk Huis van Thuis

4 July 2021 till 29 May 2022

With a multifaceted Temporary House of Home, from July 2021 Het Nieuwe Instituut will explore how our thinking about domestic interiors and design has evolved over the past decades. Because each room offers its own perspective, the house forms a spatial collage of possible interpretations of what a home can be – from safe haven to home workplace, from financial investment to haunted house, and from site of seduction to a means of control or punishment. Different perspectives on the role and functioning of the interior are set against design history and past and contemporary examples. The Temporary House also offers various answers to the question of what “design” entails beyond the furniture and interior objects with which it is usually associated.
