16 May - 20:00 - Het Nieuwe Instituut Beyond the Cover
Beyond the Cover approaches buildings as materialisation of a set of regulations, investments, and policies, making visible the political, economical and social relations constructed architecture embodies. Starting from a single building that flaunted on the cover of the Architecture in the Netherlands yearbooks between 1990 and 2000, the series explores how the shifts experienced in this era—including the deregulation and privatisation of the housing market—have directly shaped the conditions of contemporary practice of architecture. The first iteration, together with invited guests Frits van Dongen, Mariet Schoenmakers will use housing block The Whale as lens to explore what happened to housing in the Netherlands, unpacking how the backstories of the 1990s still resonate beyond the covers today.
