red window talk

June 21, 2020

In 2018, a red stained glass window was placed in one of the Oude Kerk’s chapels. This artwork by Giorgio Andreotta Calò (Venice, 1979) brings the Roman Catholic imagery back into the chapel and emphasizes the void left by the iconoclastic fury. The placing of the window caused controversy and even a lawsuit. That is why we decided to continue to discuss the work and the changing meaning of heritage. Every year on June 21, the longest day of the year, we organize a discussion in the Oude Kerk. Giorgio Andreotta Calò and director Jacqueline Grandjean will be present to exchange ideas.

Tickets for this evening are on a donation basis; reservations are required.
