These notions and the programme that has been set to fulfil Het Nieuwe Instituut’s agenda (Landscape and Interior, Things and Materials, and changing annual themes) form a thread that runs through the selection. This collection of images, which is not static, but being constantly added to and edited, is used in a variety ways to communicate about Het Nieuwe Instituut, for example, in projects that are in development, or themes that are being addressed by long-term research projects. Or they are used for special products, such as publications and reproductions. This also provides a means by which to analyse the collection in unusual ways – more theme oriented than object oriented, more substantive, but also more associative and personal. This project has resulted in a set of several hundred images which can be drawn upon for different purposes and which can help to both support and shape the identity of Het Nieuwe Instituut.
