The Hague Highlights
Lights out, spotlight on! From Wednesday 24 January to Saturday 10 February 2024 The Hague Highlights will put Escher in Het Paleis in the spotlight in The Hague’s Museum Quarter. Attempt the Absurd, Achieve the Impossible is one of the statements of the graphic artist M.C. Escher and at the same time an invitation to talented creators, video artists and other graphic artists . This year it is not only one artist who gets to enchant the façade with light art, there are hundreds of them! You can be one of the artists who may temporarily change the appearance of Escher in Het Paleis.
