During the first phase of the Disclosing Architecture programme, filmmaker Marit Geluk made Curating Decay, a documentary about the restoration and conservation of the Van Doesburg collection. From 2019, she closely followed the work of paper restorers, colour specialists, lighting experts, exhibition-makers, programmers and policymakers. Throughout the restoration process, trade-offs had to be made between the preservability, visibility and useability of this fragile material, in the knowledge that decay is inevitable.
