Works from the archives and library collection of Het Nieuwe Instituut are loaned out for exhibitions both in the Netherlands and abroad. Museums and other cultural institutes can submit a request for a loan to the Heritage department.

In theory, all works from the collection can be borrowed, but the condition of the material is an important factor in decisions on whether a drawing or model can be given on loan. After all, the material may be too delicate to transport or exhibit. If you loan works from the collection, you are responsible for the costs of transport, insurance and framing, if necessary. If a work has to be restored, the borrower is also expected to pay the costs.

Requests for loans should be submitted to the Heritage department at least three months prior to the opening of the exhibition in question. Before submitting a request, please read the Loan conditions. To facilitate the procedure, it is also important that you select the works of your choice before submitting your request. If you require assistance in your research or selection, please ask the staff in the reading room.
