Project avant-Garde 1922 - 2022
This year it is one hundred years ago that the International Theatre Exhibition was opened on the upper floor of the Stedelijk Museum in Amsterdam. That exhibition presented the then state-of-the-art in scenography and theatre architecture. A large number of avant-garde artists who have become world famous and have acquired a definitive place in art and theatre history exhibited their work here. The exhibition was seen as revolutionary and gained worldwide recognition. A few months later, the exhibition was shown at the Victoria and Albert Museum in London, where it could also count on an enthusiastic reception.
The project starts with the virtual reconstruction of the International Theater Exhibition of 1922,
accompanied by a reflection on design for theater today and the future of scenography

Scenography is a discipline within theater that is broader than set design. It has been defined as "the manipulation and orchestration of the performance environment... typically through architectonic structures, light, projected images, sound, costume and performance objects or props."
More holistic, it is "the seamless synthesis of space, text, research, art, actors, directors and spectators that contributes to an original creation."
