It's been years since the last exciting visit to a historical-architecture-themed exhibition, driven by a curiosity to see new things. It's been years since the last reading about a red-blue-yellow painting, how the painting was a product of an artistic movement, how Mr. Rietveld methodically designed a chair in 1917 and a house in 1924 accordingly. It's been years since all of those things amused my younger self. I don't know which one is more surprising: the fact that it's been years, or the fact that it was very very truthfully amusing.
