The National Gallery of Vilnius invited Jan Knikker, MVRDV’s Head of Business Development, to give a talk in the lecture series “How did I get here? National identity in architecture” on the 23rd of January 2014. MVRDV is the ultimate representative of "Superdutch", a 1990's generation of Netherlands architects who turned a Dutch version of iconic modernism into a worldwide export product. As the wish for a local architecture rises, the studio has recently realised a number of buildings reflecting and questioning the wish for national identity, history and local context.
The lecture series is organised by the curators Tadas Jonauskis, Justina Muliulyte and Julja Reklaite.
