Lecture Masaru Saito | An Encounter in 1923: Horiguchi meets the Amsterdam School (EN), including admission

In this lecture, Japanese researcher and curator Masaru Saito provides an introduction to the exhitibiton 1923: Horiguchi meets the Amsterdam School. He explains the significance of Sutemi Horiguchi (1895-1984), sheds light on why this particular exhibition revolves around the Japanese architect, and explains in which ways it does. The lecture also serves as an introduction to the shared heritage of Dutch and Japanese people who dreamed about improving society with arts, a sentiment that was bridged monumentally by a young Horiguchi exactly a hundred years ago.

The goal of this lecture is to illustrate who Horiguchi was and his connection to the Amsterdam School movement. In doing so, Saito also mentions the architect's beautiful quotes about the Amsterdam School and the stories behind them. Through this lecture, Saito aims to make his fascination with this historic artistic exchange tangible, and show us what we can learn from it today.

Please note: the lecture on September 23 will be held in English. The lecture on September 30 will be in Japanese. Both lectures start at 14:00 hrs and take around 45 minutes. Admission for the museum is included in this ticket.
