(Lut Pil) The Low Countries – 2017,№25, pp. 114-123
This year, the Netherlands is celebrating the centenary of De Stijl, the avant-garde movement that grew up around the De Stijl magazine. De Stijl belongs in the canon of Dutch history and is also the most important Dutch contribution to the modern art of the twentieth century. It has gained a permanent position for itself in surveys of modern art, architecture and design, with several members who are well known, including Mondrian, Van Doesburg, Van der Leck and Gerrit Rietveld. The multidisciplinary orientation and the aim of using art in society in concrete ways are once again topical notions, making De Stijl a relevant point of reference even for today’s art and design world.
