The Exhibitors in Alphabetical order
The catalogue lists over ninety-five designers and architects from twelve countries and reads like a compendium of the now famous renewers of scenography and/or architecture in the first decades of the twentieth century with names like Adolphe Appia, Léon Bakst, Hendrick Berlage, Lovat Fraser, Firmin Gémier, Nathalie Gontcharova, Edward Gordon Craig, Robert Edmond Jones, Louis Jouvet, Oskar Kauffmann, Frits Lensvelt, Emil Orlik, Emil Pirchan, Hans Poelzig, Alfred Roller, Lee Simonson, Ernst Stern, Oskar Strnad, Bruno Taut, Henri van de Velde, H. Th. Wijdeveld and others – not to mention the great names in theatre (directors, theoreticians) that were indirectly presented through these artists (such as Cheney, Copeau, Diaghilev, Jessner, Reinhardt, Royaards, Verkade and others) and who in many cases came to visit the exhibition themselves. Besides the designs and models within the exhibition there was an additional study collection with books on modern stage design from all over the world where one could read “the theories which form a basis for modern drama, and which shape it”. Finally there was a series of lectures by Gordon Craig, Jacques Copeau, Oskar Strnad, Frits Lensvelt and H. Th.Wijdeveld where the ideas behind the designs were explained and discussed.
