A century after the outbreak of World War I, Het Nieuwe Instituut looks at the relationship between war and creativity in the events programme 2014–1914: Conflict and Innovation. Component projects include the radio tour Radio Neutraal. Het Nieuwe Instituut’s building provides a dramatic setting for Radio Neutraal, which takes the Dutch government's attitude in World War I as its point of departure but goes beyond political history. The project looks at neutrality as a recurrent productive strategy used by a range of Dutch designers, architects and policymakers. The radio report is illustrated with historical visual material, models and recent designs. Contributors include Samuël Kruizinga, Timo de Rijk, Gijs van Oenen and Ben Schouten.
