De Stijl 100 years

In 2017, it will be 100 years since De Stijl, the Dutch art movement, was founded. Countless inspiring events and exhibitions will be held throughout the Netherlands 2017 to celebrate this fact. De Stijl started in the city of Leiden (located between Amsterdam and the Hague) in 1917 when De Stijl magazine was established by Theo van Doesburg. De Stijl artists search for a completely ‘new art’ that is also expected to renew all of society. Piet Mondrian is a role model for all De Stijl artists. Even today, the principles of De Stijl continue to inspire many Dutch designers like Hella Jongerius, Maarten Baas, Joris Laarman, and Piet Hein Eek and ofcourse your favourite artist Johannes BlonK.

On this page I will give you information about the events (mainly in the Netherlands) around this jubilee.
