In Vitro The many lives of glass

Maastricht

The In Vitro exhibition illuminates Limburg's rich glass heritage, showcasing its evolution from artisanal material to industrial force shaping architecture and environments.

Glass has profoundly shaped Limburg’s regional and visual identity. From Roermond’s history as a glassmaking hub, to the Roman Catholic commerce that extended beyond provincial borders. From distinctive glass-in-lead skylights to neo-Gothic Catholic church windows. From Limburg School luminaries, including Joep Nicolas, Charles Eyck, and Felix Flos, to contemporary architects, such as Wiel Arets, Francine Houben, Mathieu Bruls, and Jo Coenen.

Glass has profoundly shaped Limburg’s regional and visual identity. From Roermond’s history as a glassmaking hub, to the Roman Catholic commerce that extended beyond provincial borders. From distinctive glass-in-lead skylights to neo-Gothic Catholic church windows. From Limburg School luminaries, including Joep Nicolas, Charles Eyck, and Felix Flos, to contemporary architects, such as Wiel Arets, Francine Houben, Mathieu Bruls, and Jo Coenen.

In Vitro is an exhibition exploring glass's diverse uses in architecture. Beyond glass’s role as a local and artisanal material, it holds the status of an industrial product that significantly shapes our interactions with each other, the architectural landscape, and the surrounding environment. This exhibition combines historical archive materials and vintage stained glass with contemplative installations and films investigating glass’s luminosity and layered characteristics. Through designs and models, the exhibition also forges connections between modern Limburg architecture and the broader context, philosophy, and symbolic significance of glass.
