The exhibition ℞eFormat takes place in the Gallery of the Royal Academy of Art in The Hague from 27 November until 14 December 2015. This exhibition presents art work that Noorda made within the framework of her PhD research.

She focuses on both the history of the Lebensreform movement and its impact on contemporary art, as well as on her own roots growing up in an anthroposophical family.
