Have we met? The Detour Guides
Each Detour Guide brings their unique perspective as a dancer, teacher or designer to these hour-long tours one Sunday every month. In collaboration with the Triennale di Milano, Het Nieuwe Instituut expands its Detours to include local Milanese makers trained by the Dutch team.
