Atelier Nelly and Theo van Doesburg

Jul 11, 2020–Jul 12, 2021
Theo van Doesburg. Studio in Meudon-Val-Fleury, 1927-1930. View from the garden. Collection Het Nieuwe Instituut, DOES AB5388. Donation Van Moorsel.

A new look at the work of Nelly and Theo van Doesburg is possible thanks to the restoration of their architecture archive. The exhibition recognises Nelly as a key figure in the consolidation of the reputation of Van Doesburg and De Stijl. The magnificent focus of the exhibition will be on the couple’s most striking joint project: their studio-house in the Parisian suburb of Meudon. Sketches, drawings and scale models rarely (if ever) exhibited before reveal the house’s rich history.
