Press release Space Embodied
12 June 2016 - 8 January 2017
The installation Space Embodied, on show from 12 June 2016 in Het Nieuwe Instituut, is about the new, free human as propagated by the Russian avant-garde. Space Embodied is an installation about the body in movement: life-size projections of dancers, a dance floor, stage sets and mirrors confront visitors in a direct and physical way with the historical material from the 1920s.
