Reinier Kranendonk 'squats' Architecture of Appropriation
9 FEBRUARY 2017
On 6 February 2017 artist Reinier Kranendonk took over part of the exhibition space of Architecture of Appropriation on the third floor of Het Nieuwe Institute with Todopia, the semi-mobile living / workspace he designed and that was on display in the institute's foyer the previous week. Kranendonk issued a written statement to explain his motivation, commenting that it would be in keeping with the spirit of Architecture of Appropriation to move Todopia within the exhibition itself.
