The Binnenhof is the oldest House of Parliament in the world still in use and will undergo a major renovation from 2021 until 2026. Multimedial Document for a Monument introduces Dutch citizens and tourists to the history of our democracy, the use of the Binnenhof, the changing political constellations of the last 50 years and the road to the future.
In co-operation with photographer Dick Holthuis, Mizja Haak (Colorativa) has initiated the development of a multimedia platform about the history, it’s residents and the renovation process of this remarkable institute of democracy.
Document for a Monument takes you from the beginning, to Count Floris of Holland and his beautiful plan for an imposing court. What has taken place there since the thirteenth century? What functions did the buildings have and what conversations were held in and around the Binnenhof? How did the Binnenhof develop from a few buildings to the seat of the Dutch government?
