A true Romantic revival will take place in our park as we proudly present our new exhibition A foolish summer at Huize Frankendael. In the 19th century, so-called follies popped up in the gardens of the elite all over Europe. These small, imaginative constructions could present themselves in about any form – be it the old ruins of an ancient structure (like the ruin that is still on view in Park Frankendael) or an exotic pagoda. Anything was possible, as these fanciful little buildings were supposed to amaze and encourage reflection.
 
Seven modern-day artists show their own interpretation of this curious cultural phenomenon.
