In the exhibition titled Couleur Radicaal, a parallel event of Manifesta 9, Marres Projects and SCHUNCK* explore how the universalist principles of modernism have influenced local developments, using ‘Heerlen’ as case study.
Since the 20th century, the idea of avant-garde played an explicit role in Heerlen, a city with a self-image composed of concepts as innovative, enterprising and pioneering. Curator Lene ter Haar traces the trail of the avant-garde in Heerlen based on a series of “memories”.
