In the MuseumKwartier (Museum District) you can make a visual journey in time past the cornerstones and milestones of our democracy in the playful video projection Old masters, New heroes, on show at Ridderzaal.
Think of The Hague and images of the iconic residential buildings quickly come to mind. From Thursday 8 November - Saturday 8 December the Ridderzaal on Binnenhof will be under the spotlights for fifteen evenings (every Thurs/Fri/Sat). Fascinating video projections bring the building to life. A projection will also take place at the Kurhaus. Keys of Light.
Old masters, New heroes, video projection on the Ridderzaal
Take a visual journey in time past the milestones of our democracy in the MuseumKwartier. The playful video projection Old masters, New heroes sheds new light on the history of the residence. For 800 years, the Binnenhof has been the centre of power, heart of the democracy and foundation for freedom. Nowhere in the world is a government centre that has been operational for eight centuries with such a strong connection to the monarchy, art and culture. Who were the counts of Holland, why did they choose this spot and why did Amsterdam not become the centre of government? The Gothic Ridderzaal (Knights’ Hall), once the entertaining palace of the Counts of Holland, serves as a film screen. Make this voyage of discovery with the whole family. A unique opportunity, because the Binnenhof is on the verge of a large-scale renovation.
