wendingen 1

With its first issue in January, 1918, Wendingen set a new standard in arts publishing. In its combination of rigorous thinking about the world of contemporary arts and its exquisite design and production, it surpassed all other journals of its time, and those that followed. Under the direction of architect Hendricus Theodorus Wijdeveld, Wendingen (which roughly translates as ‘upheaval’) sought out the newest ideas and most creative practitioners in all of the visual arts, including architecture, graphics, sculpture, ceramics, glass and theatrical design.


In its fourteen year history, Wendingen featured the work of such diverse artists and architects as Gustav Klimt, Josef Hoffman, Michel de Klerk, El Lissitzsky, Erich Mendelsohn, and Eileen Gray.
