Tijdschrift voor Interieurgeschiedenis en Design: Women and Design in Belgium

As a continuation of the Flanders Architecture Institute’s Wiki Women Design (2020-21), the Tijdschrift voor Interieurgescheidenis and Design (Peeters) has dedicated 2023’s thematic issue to women and design in Belgium.

The issue, edited by Nina Serulus, Javier Gimeno-Martinez and Marjan Sterckx, contains six research articles highlighting women in (interior) architecture, design and applied arts, and in architecture and design education. In addition, nine shorter portraits shed a light on women who were researched in the framework of Wiki Women Design.

Hortence members who contributed to the issue are Veronique Boone and Elisabeth Gérard, with an article on the first women at La Cambre (1927-50); Apolline Vranken, who wrote on architect Simone Guillissen-Hoa (1916-96) in Belgian periodical press (1948-69) and Michel D’hoe, with a portrait of Jenny Meirens (1945-2017), key figure in Belgian fashion and co-founder of Maison Martin Margiela, co-written with Eve Demoen (Modemuseum Hasselt).
