Laura Grimm

A “self-organising artist” is how Detour Guide Laura Grimm describes herself. She likes creating sculptures and working with textiles. Her studio, the autumn and changing into her pyjamas after getting home are a few of her favourite things.

“A Detour is more than looking, listening and reading. It is a moment when I can connect people to something or someone, teaching them to see more and gain more insight together.”

Thursday Night Detour

Every Thursday night a Detour Guide takes you on a free Detour through one of the exhibitions on display at Het Nieuwe Instituut. Discover design, digital culture and architecture from the perspective, expertise and knowledge of your guide. Each Detour is different. You might find yourself making a joint choreography or designing a space for insects.
