In an age in which the writing of fashion history has been relegated to the PR departments of fashion houses, Het Nieuwe Instituut attempts to construct an open canon of Dutch fashion. In an interplay between fact and fiction, this open history – with multiple and occasionally contradictory narratives – places the accent on the user/consumer as emblematic of the innovative force of Dutch fashion. Guus Beumer, artistic director of the Temporary Fashion Museum, took the Reading Room public on a journey through Dutch fashion history.
