During the weekend of 12 and 13 September this year, an adapted Open Monumentendag programme will take place, with special routes, openings and online programming. Discover the story behind Sonneveld House, a national monument from 1933 and one of the best-preserved houses in the modernist Nieuwe Bouwen style.
During Open Monumentendag, visiting Sonneveld House is free of charge. Due to the current coronavirus measures, an online reservation is essential. You can then discover the house at your own pace, listen to the free audio tour and experience how the Sonneveld family lived. You can also listen to the audio tour online.
Gijs Bakker & K. Schippers: Basics
A visit to the house means that you can currently also enjoy work by Dutch jewellery designer Gijs Bakker and Dutch poet K. Schippers. The starting point of the exhibition Basics is the difference between the way we view a piece of jewellery and how we see a poem. When looking at jewellery, the observer's perception is loaded: would I wear it? What's it worth? With a poem, you are more likely to see the words on paper as a whole, making a judgement on them only after reading. Nevertheless, jewellery and poetry share the ability to convey a message in a compact form.
