About Wendingen, the name and Architectura et Amicitiae

Wendingen covers

The Amsterdam School was a notorious movement in art and architecture. It was a movement without a defined programme. In the magazine Wendingen - under the inspiring leadership of Hendrik Wijdeveld, whose typography can be called pioneering - the works and ideas of the individual Amsterdam School artists were collected and shared.

Now, 100 years later, we are looking for the soul, the expressions and the limits of this expressive movement. Museum Het Schip has set up Platform Wendingen for this purpose, named after the most important magazine of the Amsterdam School.

Read the extensive theme article by Wim Jacobs, board member of Museum Het Schip about the connection between Wendingen, the magazine and Wendingen, the online platform.
