De Ateliers 1963–2023. History of an artists’ institute

Celebrating its 60t birthday, De Ateliers launches a new book on the notorious history of Hollands first post academic art institute. De Ateliers 1963–2023.

Seven-day week, 2023
Outdoor sign, 80x60 cm
Evita Vasiljeva

The Woonhuis sign is inspired by Evita Vasiljeva's time at De Ateliers, where days stretched into weeks, weeks into months, spanning two years. Reflecting the shared sense of time unraveling at De Ateliers, the sign takes the shape of a chaotic calendar—a visual attempt to impose order, yet ultimately succumbing to disorder.
