Hugo Grotius 400

Hugo Grotius 400

Slot Loevestein (NL)
Temporary exhibition 2021

A dive into the mind of Dutch humanist, diplomat, lawyer, theologian, jurist, poet and playwright Hugo Grotius (Hugo de Groot).


Hugo Grotius, is in The Netherlands famous for his spectacular escape from his imprisonment on Loevestein Castle. Hidden in a book-chest, he managed to flee exactly 400 years ago


The exhibition welcomes the guests with the most iconic and known topic, the chest.


The escape has become legendary and throughout time innumerous artistic impressions of it have been created. From 300-year-old sketches up to a Lego stop-motion film. The exhibition brings some them together and shows how this escape, that is part of the national canon of The Netherlands, has become kind of pop-culture in itself.


Since the original book-chest is not existing anymore, we worked together with young people to build a new one. As a guest, you can even step inside, test the chest-escape-feeling and get a picture taken.

Over the years, the original cell and its interior have been lost. In this space you can meet Hugo Grotius in his original cell in the form of an oil-painting.


Every few minutes, the walls of his cell 'become alive' and start to tell about the live as a captive on Loevestein Castle and reveal the details of the great escape.


As the grand finale and the main space, the guests enter the 'universe of thoughts' of Hugo Grotius who was one of the forethinkers of modern day international and maritime law.


5 of his most important antique books are displayed in orbital-showcases, which virtually scatter the words from the books in form of light all over the space and therewith create an immersive 'light installation of thoughts'. 


Traveling trough this 'universe of thoughts', the guests will meet five experts, among which the ESA Astronaut Andre Kuipers, that talk about some important aspects, the legacy and influence of Hugo Grotius’s work in our modern world.

Museum Catharijneconvent Utrecht 
Temporary exhibition 2020-2021

An immersive journey through the body perception of the Middle Ages.

This exhibition shows Christian artifacts from the late Middle Ages that depict the body in unexpected and extreme ways. The collection is curated from all over Europe, including pieces from the British Library and the French Louvre.


To guide the guests through the collection, we created an immersive experience that leads through different parts of the body.


Guests start their journey with an audiovisual introduction where they meet important experts, before travelling through the themed spaces BLOOD, HAIR, HEAD and SKIN.

As the grand finale, the exhibition ends at the fountain of blood and milk. Guests can scan QR codes throughout the journey to listen to the stories behind the objects.


Due to the corona outbreak, we have adjusted the design to comply with the latest safety requirements.

Paradiso Amsterdam
Performance event 2019

An enveloping experience that draws the visitor in.


For this performance event at the legendary Paradiso in Amsterdam, we worked with the artist Cindy Moorman to develop a visitor journey around her ‘scripted gathering’ Het Wij (The We).


The overall concept incorporates themed lighting and interventions such as posters, visual art, UV stamps and projections into a multi-layered experience.


We have created a comprehensive journey that brings together the exterior and the interior of the building, drawing the guests into the venue and guiding them through the evening with the performance, an audiovisual choir, as the climax.


The very specific typology of colors and shapes of the work of Cindy Moorman has been applied in order to create a themed journey through this performance evening.

De Münster Domschat

De Münster Domschat

Museum Catharijneconvent Utrecht 
Temporary exhibition 2018 

A spectacular treasure hunt through the ages.


For the first time in history, this temporary exhibition presents the famous Münster treasure, which has its origins in the Middle Ages, outside of Münster.


The experiential journey starts with an audiovisual introduction of the treasure’s origin and its relation to Utrecht.


The exhibition then uses fascinating archival documents from the Middle Ages to explain to the guests how such a treasure was assembled with politics and indulgence.


By juxtaposing the preserved relics of the lost Utrecht treasure, we talk about the Eucharistic function of the treasure.


In the laboratory, the guests learn about the materials and origins of the treasure that are also an indicator of the trade relations of that time.


The climax is the Münster treasure itself, which we present in a treasure chest made of glass. The treasures are beautifully mounted and lit and can be experienced in detail. A recording of the Utrecht Dome Choir is playing in the space that is surrounded by enlarged details of the treasure itself.

Vinger.nl + M A F co-production in Amsterdam Zuidoost
Pop-up photo exhibition 2016

An impromptu meeting place for Amsterdam’s hip-hop scene.


This exhibition shows the unique portraits of hip-hop legends taken by the photographer Ilja Meefout in dressing rooms and backstage areas over the years. For this impressive photo-collection, we wanted to create a setting that felt like the perfect backstage as well.


Instead of creating a clean, white gallery space, we have worked with Vinger.nl to turn an empty shop into an exhibition space complete with a DJ setup, a bar and stage lights. Part of the walls are also covered in black paper, inviting guests to literally leave their mark next to the authentic autographs of their biggest idols.

A place where people can not only see the work, but also engage, hang out and perform.


The exhibition has become a temporary stage and hub for the local hip-hop scene almost overnight, bringing together idols and fans with some spontaneous and legendary gigs.
