Lecture ‘Blik op Wielen’ by Bas van Werven & Niels van Roij at the Louwman Museum

The theater lecture 'Blik op Wielen' is a stimulating show in which two car 'freaks', Bas van Werven and Niels van Roij, take you with passion into the wonderful world of car design. Car design appears to be a landscape full of booby traps, a world where concepts such as beauty and ugliness are of secondary importance.

The theater lecture ‘Blik op Wielen’ is a combination of learning and entertainment in which the car industry deals with its heritage and brand DNA. What moves the team of designers to the creation of a new model and what is their journey? Nothing else in society colors our identity as strongly as the car.

The college of Bas van Werven and Niels van Roij takes about one hour. After a short break, the program is interactive, you can ask questions and eventually design your own car!

If you want to learn something about car design and want to have a nice afternoon, you can easily order entrance tickets for the lecture via the website of the Louwman Museum.

The theater lecture starts at 1.30 pm and ends at 4 pm. You have the opportunity to visit the museum before and after the lecture.
