In 2017, the Netherlands is celebrating the De Stijl, the iconic artistic movement based around straight lines and primary colours. De Stijl artists turned their hands to painting and sculpture, architecture, industrial design, typography and even to literature and music.
Museums and art institutes throughout The Netherlands organise exhibitions and many other inspiring events about De Stijl to celebrate this fact.
De Stijl started in Leiden in 1917 when De Stijl magazine was established by Theo van Doesburg. De Stijl artists, such as Piet Mondrian, Theo van Doesburg, Bart van der Leck and Gerrit Rietveld searched for a completely ‘new art’ that is also expected to renew all of society.
On this series page, we've collected the video's about the exhibitions that are organized especially for the De Stijl celebration, but also added some video's from our achives that highlight art works and artists around De Stijl.
