Together with Simon Deinum, the author of the biography Dichter bij Siep, Museum Dr8888 is organising a major retrospective of the Frisian artist Siep van den Berg (Tirns 1913 – Amsterdam 1998). Van den Berg was first a house painter and later took the Drawing and Painting evening class at Minerva Art Academy in Groningen. He had lessons here taught by Ploeg member Jan Altink, among others. His style developed from naturalism through impressionism and cubism to constructivism and he was greatly influenced by De Stijl.

Together with Simon Deinum, the author of the biography Dichter bij Siep, Museum Dr8888 is organising a major retrospective of the Frisian artist Siep van den Berg (Tirns 1913 – Amsterdam 1998). Van den Berg was first a house painter and later took the Drawing and Painting evening class at Minerva Art Academy in Groningen. He had lessons here taught by Ploeg member Jan Altink, among others. His style developed from naturalism through impressionism and cubism to constructivism and he was greatly influenced by De Stijl. This exhibition on the ‘Kind van Mondriaan’, as he called himself, coincides with the celebration of 100 jaar De Ploeg in 2018.

This exhibition is part of the Strasbourg, laboratory in Europe project and concentrates on the Aubette. The Ciné-dancing and Restaurant Aubette was designed and decorated in 1928 by Theo van Doesburg, Hans Arp and Sophie Taeuber-Arp. Van Doesburg could now set loose his ideas about colour in architecture on a monumental scale; the Aubette is therefore also called the Sistine Chapel of modernism. For Museum Dr8888 it’s very interesting to connect Van Doesburg’s last work with his first – the Papegaaienbuurt in Drachten. This is a travelling exhibition and can be seen in Strasbourg in 2017 and in Drachten in 2018.
