Join us each Sunday afternoon for one of our introductory lectures. Free of charge, these lectures are the ideal start of an exhibition visit. Modern casts a new light on 19th- and early 20th-century artists and designers who did not want to work only for the elite, but aimed to reach as many people as possible. A story about the connectedness of aesthetics and ethics, which also includes the interactions between European and extra-European art and design. Learn more about this perspective during this introductory lecture, followed by your visit to the exhibition.
