with the title ‘WORK, BODY, LEISURE’, the dutch pavilion at the 16th international architecture exhibition addresses the spatial configurations, modes of living and notions of the human body engendered by disruptive changes in labor ethos and conditions. the project, commissioned by het nieuwe instituut and curated by marina otero verzier, includes contributions by a group of architects, artists, designers, historians, musicians and theorists selected by the curatorial team and through a number of open calls.
