IISH activities History Month

‘In-between Dream & Deed’ is the theme for the annual Dutch Month of History, October 2015. The Month of History’s website explains the theme further: ‘In-between Dream & Deed is  about achieving ideals. You may think of immigrants who came to the Netherlands with a particular dream, technical progress or great ideologies such as communism or capitalism.’

The IISH hooks up on the theme by organizing  two walking tours through Utopian Amsterdam, a symposium about the sharing economy and a collection presentation ‘Naked Utopia’, about nudists and their ideals.

A small selection of the IISH’s  latest collection presentations and larger document collections that touch on the subject:
