The Royal Investiture! | De Nieuwe Kerk, Amsterdam | 2013
On the occasion of the investiture of King Willem-Alexander the Nieuwe Kerk features the history of two hundred years of the Kingdom of the Netherlands and the family of Orange-Nassau by eight inaugurations.

The monumental exhibition design uses the symbols and colours of the monarchy. The ticket box is at the Dam Square and the entrance at the N.Z. Voorburgwal, just as the guests used to enter the church at the inaugurations. Each monarch is represented by his/her costume, throne, documents and film footage of the ceremony. The regalia of King Willem-Alexander and Máxima are displayed in the transept. The background of the family of Orange-Nassau is explained in the ambulatory.
