Idealists in Glass

How did Leerdam Glass become so famous? What motivated the artists, architects and factory directors at the beginning of the 20th Century? What did they rebel against?
Guided by the most beautiful pieces of Dutch glass art by De Bazel, Berlage, Copier

and Meydam, a historical image is painted between the ideals and their shape they take or even between dream and reality. On three floors, three generations of idealists in glass will show their products, including designers like Arnout Visser, Ed Annink and Marcel Wanders.

Art Ants was asked by the National Glassmuseum to curate the exhibition, coordinate the marketing and produce the bilingual catalogue, designed by RAM vormgeving.
