Jeff Wall: Tableaux Pictures Photographs 1996-2013
How much does Jeff Wall leave to chance? And what is the subtle difference between fiction and the imaginary? Wall (1948) is eager to challenge preconceived notions and expectations, also about his own work. Days before the opening of the exhibition Jeff Wall: Tableaux Pictures Photographs 1996-2013, the artist and curator of photography Hripsimé Visser stroll through the exhibition and discuss clichés, fact and fiction around his work. This video introduces the exhibition at the Stedelijk and casts a light on Wall's sometimes mystical and at the same time monumental photography and method which moves between reminiscence, mise en scene and realism.

Gordon Matta-Clark: Office Baroque
In 1977, Gordon Matta-Clark (New York, 1943-1978) was invited by the ICC in Antwerp to work on the intervention Office Baroque. At this time, filmmaker Cherica Convents realized the documentary film Office Baroque. Later during that year, she followed Matta-Clark while he worked on Jacob's Ladder for Documenta 6 in Kassel. Thirty-five years later, Cherica Convents has rediscovered unseen excerpts from that film footage. The material shows a thoughtful and talkative Gordon Matta-Clark who, nevertheless, is submerged in brute, hard and physical labour. In the film Summer 77, the camera registers him as if in a dance, an architectural speculation, translated to what the artist himself calls an atmosphere of 'dust, ruins, hardship and spatial complexity'. After restoring the original film, Office Baroque, and after creating Summer 77 in 2012, Cherica Convents decided to finally finish the full edit and production of Jacob's Ladder. Both 30-minute documentary films are an excellent source for in-depth study of one of the 20th Century's most influential artists. The films were presented on 20 March 2013 in Cinema Zuid, followed by a conversation between Cherica Convents and Flor Bex, moderated by Stefaan Vervoort.

Mike Kelley by Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam
A production by Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam for ARTtube. More info: http://arttube.nl/en/Stedelijk/Mike_Kelley Widely acknowledged as an artist who defined his era, Mike Kelley (1954--2012) created a stunning and protean legacy that encompasses painting, sculpture, works on paper, installation, performance, music, video, photography, collaborative works and critical texts. In the largest exhibition of his work ever organized—and the first comprehensive survey attempted since 1993—the Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam presentation of Mike Kelley brings together over 200 works, spanning the artist's 35-year career. Organized chronologically for the most part, Mike Kelley fills virtually all of the 1792-square-meter (19.289-square-foot) temporary exhibition space in the new building of the expanded Stedelijk Museum. The exhibition will constitute an overview of the artist's work from the mid-1970s until shortly before his death, allowing visitors to understand and appreciate the full scope of his achievements. "Mike Kelley's brilliance was rooted in his ability to dig critically into a world of cultural productions, representations, and constructions in all their messy contradictions, using a combination of incisive wit, poetic insight and uncanny associative power," Ann Goldstein commented. "Nothing is sacrosanct in his work—not so-called high culture, history, literature, music, philosophy, psychology, religion or education. In bringing together his interest in so-called low culture—from crafts to comic strips—with a reconsideration of identity and sexuality, he was nothing less than revelatory."

Marlene Dumas: The Image as Burden
In this video we see Marlene Dumas preparing for the retrospective exhibition Marlene Dumas – The Image as Burden at Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam. With almost two hundred drawings and paintings from private and museum collections throughout the world, Marlene Dumas – The Image as Burden is the first major solo exhibition of Dumas in the Netherlands in 20 years. It is the most comprehensive retrospective survey of her work in Europe to date and presents a compelling overview of her oeuvre from the late 1970s to the present. In addition to her most important and iconic works, the exhibition also presents lesser-known paintings and drawings, including many works never before seen in the Netherlands, and a selection of her most recent paintings. The title of the exhibition is derived from the work The Image as Burden (1993), which refers to the conflict between the painterly gesture and the illusion of the painted image. The Stedelijk presentation features a number of exclusive highlights, such as a gallery devoted to drawings that have come straight from her studio, which have rarely – if ever – been on public view, and the 100-piece series Models from the collection of the Van Abbemuseum. The survey at the Stedelijk also places greater emphasis on the works produced between 1976 and 1982, when Dumas’s career in Amsterdam began. After many years, the key work in her oeuvre, Love vs Death (1980), which opens the exhibition, is once again on display. Also included are a selection of Dumas’s most recent paintings, such as The Widow and Nuclear Family, both from 2013, and a number of watercolor drawings from the series Great Men (2014), the remainder of which is currently on view at Manifesta in St. Petersburg. The exhibition closely examines the key themes and motifs that Dumas has developed throughout her artistic career. Special attention is devoted to the works on paper that Dumas produced in the early years after her arrival in the Netherlands, when she also exhibited her work for the first time at the Stedelijk Museum and Museum Fodor (1978-81). Themes such as love, death and longing, and the use of texts and images found in the mass media – which are also explored in her late paintings – are evident in these early works, too. ABOUT MARLENE DUMAS Marlene Dumas is considered one of the most significant and influential painters working today. With her work, she gives new content to the meaning that painting can still have today, in an era dominated by visual culture. Her intense, emotionally charged paintings and drawings address existentialist themes and often reference art historical motifs and current political issues. Dumas often finds inspiration in newspaper and magazine images from her immense visual archive. The artist believes that the endless stream of photographic images that bombards us every day influences how we see each other and the world around us. Dumas addresses this onslaught by revealing the psychological, social, and political aspects of these images. Her drawings and paintings have an enormous directness and expressiveness, which the artist couples with a certain analytical distance. Dumas does not shy away from controversial topics. In both her visual work and her writings, Dumas reflects on contemporary painting and what it means to be an artist. Marlene Dumas was born in 1953 in Cape Town, South Africa. She came to the Netherlands in the ‘70s to study at Ateliers ’63 in Haarlem. On completing her study, Dumas settled in Amsterdam, where she still lives and works. In recent years, Dumas has held important exhibitions in the United States (New York, Houston and Los Angeles), South Africa, Germany and Japan, and elsewhere. Her work is represented in the collections of numerous distinguished museums and private collectors throughout the world. Dumas is the recipient of many prestigious art awards, the most recent being the Johannes Vermeer Prize (2012).

ZERO - Radical Art of the '50s and '60s
Fire, light, movement, space, demonstrations, and performances: the Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam presents an historic survey of the innovative, international avant-garde artists’ group, ZERO. In the ’50s and ’60s, the ZERO artists’ group experimented with the most innovative materials and media. In 1962, the Stedelijk Museum staged the first museum presentation of ZERO. A few years later, a more comprehensive survey, Nul 1965, followed, a presentation widely considered as one of the movement’s highlights. Now, precisely fifty years later, the Stedelijk is proud to present an historical survey that sheds light on how the network’s artists – Armando, Heinz Mack, Henk Peeters, Otto Piene, Jan Schoonhoven, Günther Uecker, Lucio Fontana, Yves Klein, Piero Manzoni, Jean Tinguely, and Yayoi Kusama – redefined the meaning and form of art forever.

Jimmie Durham: A Matter of Life and Death and Singing
The exhibition 'JIMMIE DURHAM A Matter of Life and Death and Singing' features more than 120 works from all his creative periods. Many of his ideas and images recur in different forms at different stages of his career, so the exhibition presents 'ensembles' of works that are not always chronologically organised. Our project starts from Durham's relevance in Europe, which he prefers to think of as Eurasia and where he situates himself as 'a homeless orphan.' His recent work is often understood as a fundamental critique of architecture. This approach allows us to look back, with open eyes and minds, at what he actually proposed years ago. It also allows us to re-evaluate the appreciation of his work formulated in the late eighties, when the art world first started to become multipolar and culturally diverse.

The new graphic identity of the Stedelijk Museum by Mevis & Van Deursen
Graphic designers Armand Mevis and Linda van Deursen provide an inside look into the development of the new graphic identity of the Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam and its implementation in the museum. Internationally renowned as one of the most inventive and acclaimed design agencies in the Netherlands, the duo had previously created the graphic identity of the museum's Temporary Stedelijk program from 2010 to 2012. The museum's visual rebranding includes a new logo, website design, publications, newsletter, stationery and posters, among other applications. In anticipation of the reopening of the Stedelijk Museum on September 23, the new campaign is gradually unveiled. For more information visit www.stedelijk.nl

Kazimir Malevich and the Russian Avant-Garde
The Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam presented Kazimir Malevich and the Russian Avant-Garde, with selections from the Khardzhiev and Costakis collections, the largest survey in twenty years devoted to the work of the Russian avant-garde pioneer Kazimir Malevich (1879--1935). The Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam holds the largest collection of Malevich's work outside of Russia, which was the subject of a large-scale exhibition at the museum in 1989. Kazimir Malevich and the Russian Avant-Garde is a tribute to the artist and his contemporaries, as well as the culmination of 2013 as the year celebrating Dutch--Russian relations in the Netherlands. Not only an artist, Malevich was an influential teacher and a passionate advocate of the "new" art. The show is a tribute to the Russian avant- garde of the early 20th century, with Malevich as its focal point. Although best known for his purely abstract work, he was inspired by diverse art movements of his day, including Impressionism, Symbolism, Fauvism, and Cubism; his own visual language was also influenced by Russian icon painting and folk art. Through oil paintings, gouaches, drawings, and sculptures, the exhibition traces the rich variety of his oeuvre. All the phases in Malevich's career are on view, from his Impressionist period to his iconic Suprematist phase—his Black Square was its most radical consequence—to the lesser-known figurative works that followed. Exhibition dates: Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam October 19, 2013 -- February 2, 2014 Bundeskunsthalle, Bonn March 11 -- June 22, 2014 Tate Modern, London July 17 -- October 26, 2014 Credits Commissioned by Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam; produced by Submarine.

Roni Horn - De Pont Museum
The American artist Roni Horn has exhibitions in the most important places of the world. With this exhibition at De Pont, the accent lies with work from the past ten years: her monumental sculptures of glass, photographic works and recent series of drawings. Through the addition of drawings and photographs from the 1980s and 90s, the visitor nonetheless has a fairly broad view of her oeuvre. The last room of the exhibition is devoted solely to Horn’s recent glass sculptures. After the narrowing space and the intimate wool-storage rooms, the visitor arrives in an open and light space where an ensemble of ten cylindrical sculptures in blue, green, light-brown and white glass provides a captivating final chord.

Kerry James Marshall at M HKA
Kerry James Marshall - Painting and Other Stuff M HKA, Antwerp, 4 October 2013 till 2 February 2014 A long-time resident of Chicago, Kerry James Marshall is widely regarded as one of the greatest painters of his generation. Strongly influenced by his experiences as a young man, Marshall developed a signature style as an artist, centring on the life and history of the black subject. His now-substantial body of work offers his perspective on the complexity of the African-American condition, along with its persistent issues of race politics, cultural representation and social emancipation. In an attempt to reconcile the black subject with images of Western ideals, Marshall places both in his paintings, highlighting determinations of black identity that are contextualised by history and the current social-political situation. Also addressing the history of art, Marshall strives to fill what he describes as the 'lack in the image bank' with his work, whilst raising pertinent questions about how the art system sustains itself and the related antagonisms of legitimation, power and marginalisation. Yet painting is really only one facet of an exquisitely polymorphous practice that also includes sculpture, photography, installation, collage, video, prints and animated film. It is precisely his aesthetic wealth and visual intelligence that M HKA is seeking to foreground in the exhibition KERRY JAMES MARSHALL Painting and Other Stuff -- the biggest exhibition of work by Marshall to date, co-produced by a major European museum partnership. Painting and Other Stuff opens up Marshall's multifaceted approach to making art, offering us a glimpse into his inner world of ideas and ambitions. KERRY JAMES MARSHALL - Painting and Other Stuff is co-organised by M HKA in Antwerp, Kunsthal Charlottenborg in Copenhagen, Fundació Antoni Tàpies in Barcelona and Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía in Madrid. It is a long-overdue survey of Marshall's work in mainland-Europe, and the most substantial presentations in his career to date. After M HKA, Painting and Other Stuff will travel to Copenhagen (27.02--04.05.2014), Barcelona (10.06--26.10.2014) and Madrid (12.06--26.10.2014).

Chantal Akerman: Too Far, Too Close
Belgian director Chantal Akerman gained world success with her masterpiece 'Jeanne Dielman, 23 Quai Du Commerce, 1080 Bruxelles' (1975) and consolidated her reputation with films like 'Toute une Nuit', 'Les années 80' and 'Le Marteau'. In the early nineties Akerman shifted her career from strictly film into the arts. She participated, amongst other exhibitions, at dOCUMENTA 10 and 11. It dated from 1995 since Akerman exhibited in her native country with a massive retrospective. In 'Too far, Too Close' the M HKA presented an overview from Akermans oeuvre starting with the 1968 production 'Saute ma Ville' and ending with her most recent work, 'Maniac Summer'.

In the studio of Berlinde De Bruyckere
Belgian artist Berlinde De Bruyckere (b. 1964) creates sculptures that reveal the human body and human life in all its frailty. Her installations of equine and human bodies evoke feelings of love and consolation, but also of terror and violence. The work is both emotionally immersive and provocative, regularly creating controversy. De Brucykere’s bitter-sweet images unite pain and suffering with a strong aesthetic appeal. Her Cripplewood presentation attracted great public attention at the 55th Venice Biennale. The Gemeentemuseum Den Haag acquired her sculpture Into One – Another II, To P.P.P., 2010-2011 in 2011 and now holds a major retrospective of her work, much of it never previously exhibited in the Netherlands. The exhibition is on view until 31 May. Direction and camera: Gerrit Schreurs Camera, editing and soundmix: Maurits Veldhuijzen van Zanten Sound: Lisa Janssens Subtitling: Einion media

ARTclips - Wat is moderne kunst?
In deze clip onderzoekt presentator Maurice wat moderne kunst is. Met Blikopeners Youssef, Luca en Valerie bekijkt hij een werk van Claude Monet uit 1925. Monet maakte in zijn tijd heel vernieuwende kunst. Hij lapte de regels van de Academie aan zijn laars. Zijn werk wordt modern genoemd. Een term waarmee dus ook al wat oudere kunst wordt bedoeld dan je misschien zou vermoeden. Moderne kunst breekt met de heersende traditie. Aan conservator Bart Rutten vraagt Maurice wat moderne kunst is en ze staan stil bij werk van Marc Chagall, een kunstenaar die volledig zijn eigen weg ging. Moderne kunst ontstaat vanaf ongeveer 1870, als kunstenaars zich veel meer bewust worden van het effect dat hun schilderkunst kan hebben. Ze wisten dat veel mensen in hun eigen tijd hun werk misschien niet begrepen, maar gingen er van uit dat mensen in de toekomst het wel zouden begrijpen. Moderne kunst is kunst van systemen, van de –ismen, allemaal verschillende stijlen die volgens een bepaald concept en overtuiging worden toegepast. Maurice komt er achter dat kunst van tegenwoordig niet meer ‘modern’, maar ‘hedendaags’ wordt genoemd. Met galeriehouders Juliette Jongma en Floor Wullems bekijkt hij hedendaagse kunst in de galeries: waarom noemen we deze kunst hedendaags? Tot slot bekijkt Maurice op zaal een aantal kunstwerken die na 1960 is gemaakt: alles mag. Kunstenaars maken werk van bijvoorbeeld niet-traditionele materialen, voorwerpen of video’s.

Seth Siegelaub: Beyond Conceptual Art
The exhibition Seth Siegelaub: Beyond Conceptual Art is the first all-encompassing overview of Seth Siegelaub’s versatile life, which was so diverse that it’s impossible to caption in words. Seth was a gallerist, independent curator, publisher, researcher, archivist, bibliographer and collector. This mini-documentary is all about the extraordinary life of Seth, someone who was truly unique for the art world. In this mini-documentary Leontine Coelewij, curator of the exhibition, provides us with an introduction about Seth Siegelaub’s life as curator, collector, researcher, publicist and bibliographer. Jan Dibbets speaks about Seth Siegelaub as curator and pioneer on the field of conceptual art. Professor of International Communication Cees Hamelink tells us about Seth’s work as political researcher, and his interest in mass media and leftist literature about communication. One of Seth’s beliefs as a curator was that exhibitions didn’t only have to take place in a museum, they could also be presented as catalogues, symposiums and posters. Irma Boom, designer of the exhibition catalogue, describes Seth’s idea of the book as an exhibition. And lastly, Seth’s life partner, Marja Bloem talks about their enormous handwoven, non-Western textile collection.

ARTclips - Kan iedereen kunstenaar worden?
In deze clip onderzoekt presentator Maurice of iedereen zomaar kunstenaar kan worden. Hij bekijkt met Blikopeners Youssef, Luca en Valerie een werk van Karel Appel en bespreekt waarom dit kunst is. Als kunstenaar moet je goed dingen kunnen verzinnen, creatief en origineel zijn, talent hebben, vinden ze. Een kunstopleiding is vooral goed om een netwerk op te bouwen. Aan conservator Bart Rutten vraagt Maurice of je door een opleiding een betere kunstenaar bent. Bart vindt dat je wel een voorsprong hebt, maar het is niet per se meer nodig. Vroeger was het een beschermd beroep en moest je een opleiding hebben om je kunstenaar te mogen noemen. Sommige mensen hadden echter zoveel ambitie dat ze het toch wel ver schopten, zoals Kazimir Malevich. Maar wat maakt iemand dan een goed kunstenaar? Dat bespreekt Maurice met galeriehouder Floor Wullems: doorzettingsvermogen en urgentie. Met kunststudenten Sarah, Koen, Megan en Pim praat hij het over het belang van een kunstopleiding en of iedereen zomaar kunstenaar kan worden. Kunstenaar Joep van Lieshout denkt dat niet zomaar iedereen kunstenaar kan worden: je moet durven op zoek gaan naar andere mogelijkheden en daarbij volhouden. Conclusie: een opleiding heb je misschien niet per se nodig, maar wel talent, goede ideeën en veel doorzettingsvermogen.

Philip-Lorca diCorcia at Museum De Pont
Philip-Lorca diCorcia Photographs 1975-2012 5 October 2013 - 19 January 2014 Museum De Pont, Tilburg Philip-Lorca diCorcia first came to prominence in the 1970s with photographs that defied definition, existing in the space between documentary fact and movie-style fiction. The meticulous staging of quotidian scenes of family and friends lent the images an unparalleled sense of heightened drama and ambiguity. In the 1990s diCorcia turned his focus from scenes of domesticity to the American tradition of street photography exemplified by photographers such as Robert Frank and Gary Winogrand. In a seminal series that was retrospectively entitled 'Hustlers', diCorcia photographed men who had moved to Hollywood seeking their fortune, only to find themselves working the Sunset Strip as male prostitutes. 2007 saw the publication of 'Thousand' with Steidl Dangin, a compilation of 1,000 actual-size reproductions of diCorcia's Polaroids that instantly brought a new element of diCorcia's artistic practice into relief. Throughout diCorcia's work he has used the Polaroid format to augment his photographic projects and with this publication he was able to showcase this technique for the first time. Whilst some of the images were taken as test shots to check lighting and composition, other scenes were conceived specifically to be taken only in Polaroid format, as an entirely separate endeavour. The exhibition, which has been organised together with Schirn Kunsthalle in Frankfurt, shows work from diCorcia's most recognised series -'Hustlers', 'Streetwork', 'Heads', 'A Storybook Life', 'Lucky Thirteen', and images from his ongoing series 'East of Eden'.

Liam Gillick and Lawrence Weiner: A Syntax of Dependency:
For more than twenty years now, New York-based artists Liam Gillick (°1964) and Lawrence Weiner (°1942), who each represent different aspects of the conceptual, post-conceptual and neo-conceptual traditions in art, have engaged in an intense intellectual and artistic dialogue. In one of a number of conversations between both artists that has been published over the years, they noted how this dialogue has so far 'failed' to produce concretely artistic. This casual observation on an apparently long history of unrealized projects prompted M HKA to invite both artists to develop a project together in which their dialogue would finally be allowed to acquire material form. Their commitment to exploring the many meanings and possibilities of the dialogical model in art is expressed in the exemplary title of the project, "A Syntax of Dependency:". A M HKA production for ARTtube. Thanks to Liam Gillick, Lawrence Weiner, Dieter Roelstraete and Joris Mertens.

Kunstuur in de klas 1: Cultuur van het Moderne (HAVO/VWO)
Weg met tradities en leve de vrijheid! Dat dachten de kunstenaars aan het begin van de 20ste eeuw. Wereldoorlog I bracht heel wat ellende en verschrikking met zich mee. Er heerste een grote crisis en heel wat mensen waren straatarm. Maar ondanks deze ellende was er een hunkerend geloof in betere tijden. Een groep kunstenaars stond op om deze meer welvarende samenleving vorm te geven. Deze context zorgde voor het ontstaan van moderne kunst met kunstenaars als Piet Mondriaan (1872-1944) en Kazimir Malevich (1878-1935) als bekende voorbeelden. Kunstkenner Bart Rutten legt uit wat moderne kunst nu precies is. Hij maakt ons wegwijs langs de verschillende 'ismes'. Termen als futurisme, kubisme en suprematisme worden aan de hand van het werk van Malevich geanalyseerd. De naam Kazimir Malevich is onlosmakelijk verbonden met het zwarte vierkant. Een schilderij in de stijl van het suprematisme. Bij deze stroming heerst er een oppergezag van kleur, vorm en de pure ervaring van de schilderkunst. Er is in dit soort werken geen enkele verwijzing naar de werkelijkheid rondom ons terug te vinden. Ook vandaag bestaan er kunstenaars die nog steeds op zoek zijn naar de pure schilderkunstige beleving. Hedendaagse kunstenaar Steven Aalders legt uit wat hij wil vertellen met zijn schilderijen en hoe Malevich hem inspireert. Een andere bekende kunstenaar die een evolutie doormaakt van figuratief naar abstract is Piet Mondriaan. Mondriaan probeert in zijn schilderijen de chaos van zijn tijd te ordenen. Met zijn abstracte vormentaal behoort Mondriaan tot de Stijl, een groep kunstenaars die de kern van de werkelijkheid probeert weer te geven. Kenner Hans Janssen legt uit hoe Mondriaan tot zijn abstracte schilderijen komt.

Henry Moore: Wall Relief No.1
Henry Moore's Wall Relief No.1, near Rotterdam Central Station, is a unique piece in the artist's career: it is his only work in brick. The wall sculpture is temporarily removed because a new building is erected on the spot. Architecture historian Wouter Vanstiphout talks about the history and future of the piece. About Wall Relief No.1 The brick Wall Relief No.1 that has graced the façade of the former Bouwcentrum (Building Centre) in Rotterdam since 1955 was designed by Henry Moore. The relief is made up of approximately 16,000 hand-carved bricks. It took two master bricklayers 1,200 hours over the course of four months to complete the work. The pattern of geometric elements -- horizontal blocks with circles at the top and bottom, and linear vertical elements left and right -- forms a kind of border. This border is interrupted at certain points so that it does not have the character of a frame. The composition is less structured at the centre, where five organic forms have been loosely juxtaposed. They call to mind bodies or plants, and stones gradually polished by water, sand and wind. Reconstruction Since 2010, the former Bouwcentrum (Building Centre), later named Weena Point, has been demolished. Architecture firm De Architecten Cie. has won a bid for a new building on the same location. Wall Relief No.1 will be re-integrated in the new facade.

From Bosch to Bruegel - Uncovering Everyday Life
Five hundred years ago, there were a number of artists in The Netherlands who saw the beauty in daily life. And more than that: these artists were so talented that their depictions of the commonplace succeeded in making others receptive to it. There and then, in the 53 years between the death of Hieronymus Bosch (1516) and that of Pieter Bruegel the Elder (1569) lies the origins of our unquenchable interest for ourselves, the devious and the other. This animation film, made with images of art works, many of which are on show in the exhibition, gives a special introduction to ‘The discovery of daily life – From Bosch to Bruegel’.

Architect Mels Crouwel on the new Stedelijk
On September 23, 2012, the Stedelijk Museum is open to the public again with its brand new wing designed by Benthem Crouwel and after the first complete renovation of the Stedelijk's historic building, designed by A.W. Weissman, dating back to 1895. In this video for ARTtube, architect Mels Crouwel tells about the new wing: why he moved the entrance, about the transition between the new and old building, its nickname 'The Bathub', the black box next to the museum and the connection between Crouwel and the museum.

Mad about Surrealism: Collector Roland Penrose
Mad About Surrealism presents the passion and the personal interests of four European collectors of Surrealist art, and creates an impression of the ‘madness’, the irrational and ‘the marvellous’ that the Surrealists sought in their work. The surrealists were passionate and their collectors were no less so. This video introduces collector Roland Penrose (1900-1984). COLLECTOR ROLAND PENROSE Roland Penrose (1900-1984), himself an artist, became friends with the French surrealists thanks to his first wife. He supported them by purchasing their work, something for which there was hardly any interest at the time. Penrose developed into an exhibition maker and prepared the way for surrealism in the United Kingdom. His contacts with Picasso, Miro and Dali posed a massive change in his life. THE EXHIBITION From 11 February to 28 May 2017, Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen presents Mad About Surrealism, an unprecedented survey of the Surrealist movement with masterpieces from four famous European collections. The exhibition features more than three hunderd key works, rare books and records from the archives of Dalí, Ernst, Magritte, Miró and other well-known Surrealists. They come from the former private collections of Roland Penrose, Edward James and Gabrielle Keiller, augmented with works from the collection of Ulla and Heiner Pietzsch, which is still being developed. Get to know these collectors in this series of four videos. Photo: Lee Miller, Roland Penrose, Horton Street, London circa 1960 © courtesy Lee Miller Archives, England 2015. All rights reserved.

This autumn, the Stedelijk Museum will present Jordan Wolfson (New York, 1980), one of the most outspoken representatives of a new generation of artists who explore the increasing digitalization of society and other technological developments. The solo show is conceived as a diptych and will occupy the upper galleries of the Stedelijk. Part one is on view from November 27 to January 29, and the second chapter opens on February 18, 2017. Both presentations revolve around Wolfson’s spectacular animatronic creations: robotic human figures, seductive yet repulsive, which interact with the viewer using motion sensor technology. The exhibition also includes video works and digital paintings. This is Wolfson’s first solo presentation in the Netherlands. More information about the exhibition can be found here: http://www.stedelijk.nl/en/exhibitions/jordan

Conserving an Icon: Traces of Time in The Beanery by Kienholz
After in-depth examination, one of the most popular works in the Stedelijk Museum collection, The Beanery (1965) by Edward Kienholz, will be fully restored for the first time by the museum staff working in its new facilities. As the installation comprises a variety of materials -- for instance, the artist coated the entire installation in a synthetic liquid resin -- this will be a complex operation. In anticipation of the grand reopening on September 23, the Stedelijk is preparing and restoring a number of its best-loved artworks so that visitors to the museum will be able to enjoy these cherished icons once more.

Mondrian and Cubism - Paris 1912-1914
Film on the occasion of the exhibition Mondrian and Cubism - Paris 1912-1914, on show until May 5, 2014 in Gemeentemuseum Den Haag. Piet Mondrian (1872-1944) was a man of boundless ambition. He made himself one of the greatest masters of modern art and resolutely pioneered the path towards abstraction. In January 1912 he moved to Paris to explore Cubism. In June 1914 he returned and held an exhibition at the Walrecht gallery in The Hague; it showed just how far Mondrian had travelled from the Dutch art of his time in those two short years. He became a major source of inspiration for other Dutch artists, including Jan Sluijters, Jacoba van Heemskerck and countless younger painters. Exactly 100 years after the show at the Walrecht gallery, the Gemeentemuseum Den Haag presents this centenary exhibition as a homage to Mondrian. Its opening coincides almost to the day with the 70th anniversary of the artist's death. In addition to work by Mondrian and his Dutch contemporaries, the show will feature works by Pablo Picasso, Georges Braque, Le Fauconnier and Fernand Léger, on loan from a raft of top museums such as MoMA in New York and the Beyeler in Basle.

Meet the artist: Matias Faldbakken
The framed bin bag by the Scandinavian artist Matias Faldbakken caused something of a commotion. Faldbakken frequently makes radical and provocative attacks on society and the art world. He destroys and provokes, but at the same time recognises that he is an irrevocable part of the very society to which he says 'no'. In this interview, Matias Faldbakken talks about the artist family in which he grew up, his repulsion for street art and his fascination for minimalism. He explains that he plays with museum conventions and that his locker cupboard bound with expandable binders would not have the added value on the street that it generates by itself in an art environment. Furthermore, he has a tip for the museum visitor. This video was made on the occasion of Intervention # 21 - Matias Faldbakken, in Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen from September 1, 2012 until January 27, 2013.

ARTclips - Waarom is sommige kunst zo duur?
In deze clip onderzoekt presentator Maurice waarom sommige kunstwerken voor waanzinnig veel geld worden verkocht. In het museum bekijkt hij met jongeren Luca, Lateesha en Daphne zo’n duur kunstwerk, Baroque Egg van Jeff Koons. Hoeveel zou dit werk hebben gekost? Met kenner Hoo Man Chan praat hij over een kostbare nautilusbeker uit de 17de eeuw. Waarde kan te maken hebben met de materialen waarvan het gemaakt is, hoe oud iets is, of hoe veel werk er in zit. Kunstenaar Joep van Lieshout vertelt dat kunst ook duur is om te maken: er zit veel werk in, en niet alles wat je maakt is goed genoeg om te verkopen. Kunstenaarsduo Luna Maurer en Roel Wouters (Studio Moniker) en kunstenaar Tim Breukers vinden de meeste kunst juist helemaal niet duur. In de galerie van Floor Wullems gaat Maurice op zoek naar het duurste kunstwerk dat daar op dat moment is. Dit blijkt een werk van Karel Appel te zijn: het werk is duur doordat de kunstenaar niet meer leeft, zijn werk bevindt zich in belangrijke collecties en zijn werk is van groot belang voor de kunstgeschiedenis geweest.

Crash Course Kunst voor je eindexamen: Voorbeeldig - imiteren, variëren en overtreffen
Presentator Ischa Havens gaat aan de hand van verschillende kunstenaars in op de eindexamenthema's van de kunstvakken. In deze aflevering wordt er duidelijk hoe de kunst of de werkelijkheid tot voorbeeld van de kunstenaars dient en op welke verschillende manieren zij dit doen. Kunstenaars doen elkaar al eeuwen na: ze laten zich door elkaar inspireren, kopiëren elkaars werk, geven er hun eigen draai aan of proberen het te overtreffen. Soms kopiëren ze heel letterlijk; soms compleet opnieuw bekeken en geïnterpreteerd. Zijn kunstwerken een voorbeeld van imitatio, variatio of aemulatio? Soms is de grens niet altijd duidelijk te trekken. Zelfs in de middeleeuwse kunst werden modellen steeds weer overgenomen. Kunstenaars, jonge assistenten en volleerd kunstenaars hadden allemaal modellenboeken. Piet Mondriaan is één van de weinige kunstenaars gebleken die in staat was om iets heel radicaals en nieuws te maken. Hij imiteerde de werkelijkheid niet zoals deze is, maar probeerde juist een stap verder te gaan: orde te scheppen in de chaos die er op dat moment door oorlog en armoede in de wereld was. Kunstenaar Rob Scholte en designer Maarten Baas gebruiken bestaand werk, brengen daar een verandering in aan en maken dit zo tot hun eigen werk. Marlene Dumas neemt de foto’s en beelden in kranten, op straat en video’s als bron voor haar werk. Deze beelden kopieert zij nooit letterlijk, maar ze bewerkt ze, past ze aan en geeft er een heel eigen draai aan. Met fotografie kun je de werkelijkheid één op één vastleggen. Maar een fotograaf kan er ook iets aan toe voegen. Ed van der Elsken was zo iemand. Zijn aanwezigheid was altijd zichtbaar in zijn werk, contact was voor hem essentieel om een beeld te kunnen maken. Ook zette hij vaak een situatie in scène en werd hij de regisseur van het verhaal.

Barbara Hepworth – Sculpture for a Modern World
“I have just returned from my most beautiful exhibition at Otterlo. Never again will I see my work in such perfect and wonderful conditions and surroundings”, Barbara Hepworth wrote in 1965. And to Kröller-Müller’s director Rudi Oxenaar: “As you know, the Rietveld Pavilion gives me such a sense of happiness and brightness that it is quite difficult for me to talk about it.” In this short film the Kröller-Müller Museum presents Barbara Hepworth, one of the foremost sculptors of the twentieth century. Now, 50 years later, the Kröller-Müller Museum again presents her impressive body of work, in the museum and in the Rietveld Pavilion. The exhibition Barbara Hepworth: Sculpture for a Modern World is showing until the 17th of April 2016. Film: Matthieu Landweer Camera: Peter Witjes Voice: Claire King Archive: BBC

Alice Neel - Collector of Souls
“I have this overweening interest in humanity. Even if I’m not working I’m still analysing people.” – Alice Neel American artist Alice Neel (1900-1984) was above all a portrait painter or, as she herself put it, a ‘collector of souls’. She painted the people around her, from her children and lovers to MoMA curator Frank O’Hara, fellow artists and the flamboyant characters associated with Andy Warhol’s Factory. Her style not only captured the outward appearance of her subjects, but also their mood, their inner uncertainty or private vanity. Neel is now regarded as one of the most important painters of the twentieth century and a source of inspiration for contemporary artists, including Marlene Dumas, RinusVan de Velde and Elizabeth Peyton. Nevertheless, she remains relatively unknown in the Netherlands. The Gemeentemuseumhopes to change this by staging the first major retrospective of her work in this country. Film: Mr. Frank / Gemeentemuseum Den Haag With special thanks to: Marlene Dumas, Rinus Van de Velde, Jeremy Lewison, The Estate of Alice Neel and all museums, galleries, foundations and collectors, and all those wishing to remain anonymous, who have generously lent their works.

Kunstuur in de klas 2: Massacultuur van de 20ste eeuw (HAVO/VWO)
De tweede helft van de 20ste eeuw ziet er helemaal anders uit dan de eerste helft. In de jaren 1950 is er steeds meer welvaart. Hierdoor kunnen mensen steeds meer kopen en consumeren. Marketing en reclame domineren het dagelijkse leven en zijn overal te zien. Maar welke invloed heeft deze maatschappelijke verandering op kunst? Andy Warhol is een van de belangrijkste kunstenaars uit deze periode. Hij heeft een grote aandacht voor de gewone dingen in zijn kunst. Door deze thematiek behoort Warhol tot de Pop Art. Kunsthistoricus Rogier Schumacher en museumdirecteur Sjarel Ex geven meer uitleg over deze kunststroming. Een ander opvallend element in de Pop Art is het gebruik van strips. Roy Lichtenstein is een kunstenaar die strips uitvergroot tot schilderijen. Hij is wereldberoemd en heeft tot vandaag nog steeds een grote invloed. Zo kijkt ook de hedendaagse kunstenaar Wayne Horse op naar het werk van Lichtenstein. Door het afbeelden van banale voorwerpen uit het dagelijkse leven en het gebruik van een nieuwe vormentaal staat de kunstwereld in de jaren 1950 en 1960 helemaal op haar kop. Een kunstenaar die daar nog een schepje bovenop doet is Jeff Koons. Kunst.. of kitsch? Conservator Saskia van Kampen-Prein helpt ons beter te kijken naar het werk van Koons en legt uit wat hij bedoelt met zijn kunst. Pop Art is niet enkel iets van de jaren 1950 en 1960. Ook vandaag worden bepaalde kunstenaars nog steeds geïnspireerd door de kunststroming. Denk maar aan het werk van Tjalf Sparnaay. Sparnaay wil de werkelijkheid op een andere manier schilderen. Hij wil mensen imponeren door iets wat we ze al kennen. Herken je de invloed van de Pop Art in zijn werk? Museumdirecteur Ralph Keuning legt het uit.

Rinus Van de Velde - Gemeentemuseum Den Haag
The work of Rinus van Velde (b. Leuven, 1983) revolves around the tension between fiction and reality. His striking charcoal drawings are based either on found photographic images or on photographs of scenes he stages himself. For his show at the Gemeentemuseum Den Haag, Van de Velde is creating a completely new site-specific installation, composed of drawings on paper set against a painterly background. Using a loose but virtuoso drawing style, he tells the story of Isaac Weiss, a fictive alter ego who runs an artists’ colony. Members of the artists’ colony are big-name artists of the twentieth century, including Mark Rothko, Jean Brusselmans and Pablo Picasso. In addition to works on paper hung on a painterly background, the artist will present autonomous, free-standing sculptures – the first time he has ever done so. https://www.gemeentemuseum.nl/en/exhibitions/rinus-van-de-velde Film: Mr. Frank / Gemeentemuseum Den Haag

Digital art - Who Cares?
Digital technology plays a major role in our daily life. Computers have changed the world. Contemporary artists, too, create more and more digital works. They reflect upon the medium, write their own software and look for the limits of what’s technically possible. Museums and archives are increasingly confronted with works that don’t have a physical carrier anymore, but that only exist in digital form: born-digital art. The display and storage of digital art poses new questions and challenges. Digital artworks depend on a technological environment that changes constantly. Equipment ages and software develops further. Artworks evolve as well, or disappear forever. To give these works a permanent place in museums, a different approach is needed. What is required to bring digital art from the past to the future? Peter Struycken is a pioneer in digital art, well-known for Dutch audiences as the designer of the ubiquitous ‘Queen Beatrix’ dotted postage stamps, common from the 1980s till the 2000s. His work is collected by many Dutch museums and is typical for the problems that arise around the preservation of digital art. Researching his work is enlightening for the treatment of digital art today and in the future. This documentary presents a number of possible approaches. This documentary has been created as part of the research project ‘Transformation Digital Art’. A project about conservation strategies for digital art by The Foundation for the Conservation of Contemporary Art (SBMK) in collaboration with LIMA and their museum partners.

What the Art?! Marlene Dumas
In this episode of What the Art?!, Blikopeners Janne en Joe visit the exhibition The Image As Burden by Marlene Dumas in the Stedelijk. Fascinated by Dumas paintings and drawings, based upon magazine and newspaper images, they seek to discover more about her work and practice. With a selection of their own 'Dumas-like' newspaper clippings, they go and meet Marlene in her studio in Amsterdam. Janne and Joe have many questions for her: exactly how does she select the images she finds in the media? And how does she use them? Marlene even shows Janne and Joe some works that didn't get selected for the exhibition. Like the painting of Saddam Hussein, why wasn't he selected?

ORLAN (1947) is well known as the first artist to use her own body as a medium with which to make art. In 1980 there was a major exhibition by ORLAN at the ICC. She also carried out a mesuRAGE there, a performance in which she measures ('mesurer') streets or buildings using her own body physically and literally as a unit of measure: the ORLAN-corps. In her work ORLAN seeks a relationship with her surroundings, both symbolic and real. She does this in a long sequence of actions that are both concrete and ritualistic. These mesuRAGEs also have a 'rage' content, since the institutions she commonly measures herself against mainly represent male power. At the same time, these actions are full of humour, a duality that characterises the whole of ORLAN's oeuvre. The M HKA project shows ORLAN's interest in the mesuRAGEs and what they might signify today. Also with regard to her current physical state, because, as she says, a human has several bodies. She carried out two new mesuRAGEs, one for the Any Warhol Museum in Pittsburgh and one for the M HKA. ORLAN uses new technologies like a GPS and a BodyMedia Armband, that collects the physical data of her body and measures the physical efforts of the body during the making of the artwork. You can see the artworks that arise from the performance in the exhibition and this will remain part of the collection.

ARTclips - Wanneer is een foto kunst?
In deze clip onderzoekt presentator Maurice waarom sommige foto’s kunst worden genoemd, en andere weer niet. Met jongeren Youssef, Luca en Daphne praat hij over een foto van Jeff Wall. Op het eerste gezicht zomaar een zeepje bij een vieze wasbak. Maar als je beter kijkt, dan zie je bijvoorbeeld dat de fotograaf heel goed over de compositie heeft nagedacht. Ook een foto van Esko Männikkö is niet zomaar een foto zoals we dagelijks in de krant zien. Met kenner Ischa Havens bekijkt Maurice de foto. Het idee en de interventie van de kunstenaar (zorgvuldig bedachte compositie, titel, presentatie), zorgt er voor dat sommige foto’s meer zijn dan zomaar een kiekje. Met galeriehouder Ruben Bunder praat hij over foto’s in de galerie. Waarom zou Maurice deze foto’s niet zo snel kunnen maken, wat maakt het bijzonder? Kunststudenten Pim, Sarah en Koen vertellen wat volgens hen een foto goed maakt, en kunst. Een kunstfoto maken, dat doe je niet zomaar.

Mark Rothko
From rosy pink and jubilant yellow to bright blue to sombre black – face one of the vast canvases created by Mark Rothko (1903-1970) and you feel yourself being sucked into his world. Constructed layer upon shimmering layer, his colour fields are of unparalleled intensity and communicate universal human emotions such as fear, ecstasy, grief and euphoria. Rothko was an intensely committed painter who invested his whole being in his art and, like many other great artists, led a difficult life. Deeply disillusioned by the two world wars and plagued by depression, he was a tormented soul, yet capable of producing great art with an enduring capacity to comfort and enthral. These days, exhibitions of the American artist’s work are huge crowd-pullers and his paintings fetch record sums at auction. The Gemeentemuseum Den Haag is proud to present a new exhibition of Rothko’s work, forty years after the last such show in the Netherlands. A unique chance to enjoy Rothko’s work, this exhibition will be held only in The Hague and nowhere else.

The restoration of ‘Saint Christopher’ by Hieronymus Bosch
The restoration of ‘Saint Christopher’ by Hieronymus Bosch is taking place in the Art Studio of Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen until February 2016. This painting and several other works by Bosch from the collection have been requested as loans for the exhibition ‘Jheronimus Bosch 500’, which will be held in Den Bosch in 2016. The painting is currently too fragile to travel. A preliminary examination has shown that the painting needs to be restored: the parquet (the reinforcing cradle at the back of the panel) is fixed whereas it should be free to ‘breathe’, the wood is rotten in places, the varnish has yellowed and some of the paint is loose. This public restoration is a foretaste of what the public will see in the expertise centre in the new Public Art Depot, which is expected to open in 2017. The museum wants to show what is involved in the care and conservation of a priceless, world-class collection by allowing the public a glimpse behind the scenes. Tip: From 10 October 2015 to 17 January 2016 Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen is hosting the exhibition ‘From Bosch to Bruegel – Uncovering Everyday Life’.

Crash Course Kunst voor je eindexamen: Dromen - Dromen van een betere wereld
Presentator Ischa Havens gaat aan de hand van verschillende kunstenaars in op de eindexamenthema's van de kunstvakken. In deze aflevering staan kunstenaars centraal die met hun ontwerpen willen bijdragen aan de wereld van morgen. Al eeuwenlang dromen mensen wel eens over een betere, mooiere en fijnere wereld. Veel kunstenaars dromen er ook van om de wereld een mooiere plek te maken. Zij zoeken naar innovatieve manieren om hun droomwereld werkelijkheid te laten worden. Studio Makkink&Bey schetsen een wereld die er anders uit zou kunnen zien. Zij ontwerpen - in opdracht van Prooff, het kantoor van de toekomst. Een onderdeel hiervan is de Slow Car. Dit wordt volgens ontwerper Jurgen Bey het mobiele kantoor waarin we ons gaan voortbewegen. Voor nu nog een droom, maar straks rijden we er misschien wel allemaal in. Kunstenaar en uitvinder Daan Roosegaarde wil met zijn ontwerpen ook bijdragen aan een betere wereld. Met zijn interactieve kunstwerken wil hij de verbeelding prikkelen en een nieuwe droomwereld scheppen. Hij werkt aan een nieuwe interactieve natuur die mooi, functioneel en duurzaam is. Joris Laarman verkent de toekomstmogelijkheden van design. Hij maakt hierbij gebruik van de allernieuwste wetenschappelijke inzichten op het gebied van robottechnologie en digitale technieken. Soms zijn deze zelfs nog zó nieuw, dat de technieken nog niet toe te passen zijn; daar kan hij nu alleen nog maar van dromen…

The Future of Fashion is Now - Craig Green
In his installation “Look 14”, a textile design in collaboration with Helen Price, Craig Green elaborates upon his autumn/winter menswear collection, which was inspired by Persian carpets, workwear and romantic elements. The outfit displayed here consists of several layers: skirt, shirt, blouse, floor-length jacket and leather harness. The jacket was inspired by the Japanese worker's jacket know as a 'noragi'. The powerful silhouette is softened by the romantic print in psychedelic colours. "All pieces within the piece are individually hand painted – so each piece of cloth is a one of a kind textile. The process was a look back to how textiles used to be produced in reaction to how digitised and easily reproducible textiles and prints have become in recent years. The textile is covered with a layered circular motif[ ... ]. Each layer of paint has to dry first before a new layer can be added." Craig Green's work can be seen at the exhibition: The Future of Fashion is Now Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen until January 15, 2015 Credits A film by: Kuba Szutkowski en René Hazekamp Concept: Rianne Schoonderbeek Camera assistent: Gino Ragueb Subtitling: Einion Media

Siobhán Hapaska
Sensory Spaces 5 - Siobhán Hapaska Sensory Spaces is a series of commissioned solo projects presented in the Willem van der Vorm Gallery, located in the freely accessible exhibition space in Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen's entrance hall. Artists are invited to respond to the architectural qualities of the space, emphasizing notions of transformation and surprise. Siobhán Hapaska’s (Belfast 1963) oeuvre stretches over a period of twenty years. Her work speaks on both an abstract and representational level, paying attention to both detailed craftsmanship and contemplation. Through her installations, Hapaska attempts not only to speak to our eyesight, but to activate all the senses so that we have a more intuitive response to it, i.e. to ‘feel’ the work. She uses a wide variety of images, forms and materials. Many of Hapaska’s recent works feature olive trees. In Greek mythology the olive tree symbolizes the birth of Western society. The trees also have a symbolic value within Islam, Christianity and Judaism. Hapaska’s installation for Sensory Spaces 5 consists of nine olive trees that hang horizontally in the air and shake continuously. If Hapaska had to give the work a title, it would have been ‘Intifada’: an Arabic word that literally means ‘shaking off’. Hapaska states: “[…] uprising, rebellion or resistance, this is my intention for the spirit of this installation. I don’t necessarily mean this in an obvious political sense, more a shaking off of that which limits a better future.” The viewer has the choice to observe the installation from the sidelines or to ‘feel’ the situation in all its complexity by entering the installation, thereby becoming an active component of it all.

Meet the Artist: Ugo Rondinone [Vocabulary of Solitude]
You need know nothing about Ugo Rondinone (Brunnen 1964) to understand what his work is all about. Old gnarled trees, tiny birds, bronze horses: they are the same and yet all different - and this also applies to the primitive human figures made up of rough blocks of stone. Constantly recurring motifs are the clown and the rainbow, whereby the first portrays in all its colourful splendour an individual that must rely completely on himself, while the rainbow, with the same colours and a poetic text, shows how we people are connected with each other. But even if his work is immediately understood by everybody (even or perhaps particularly by children), it is still interesting to hear what people who know Rondinone have to say about him. Film-maker Hans Wessels travelled to New York and Zurich to talk to gallery owners Barbara Gladstone and Eva Presenhuber, MoMA curator Laura Hoptman and the poet and artist John Giorno, who is also Rondinone’s life partner. This video was made in the context of the exhibition ‘Ugo Rondinone - Vocabulary of Solitude’, which will be on show in Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen from 13 February to 29 May 2016.

Makers: FOTO
In de videoserie 'Makers' duikt ARTtube in een vijftal artistieke disciplines om het maakproces zichtbaar te maken. ARTtube wil laten zien hoe kunstenaars en ontwerpers te werk gaan en waarom ze voor een bepaalde techniek of materiaal kiezen. De derde video in de reeks gaat over fotografie. We bekijken het maakproces van foto's: hoe drie verschillende hedendaagse fotografen - Machiel Botman, Anouk Kruithof en Paulien Oltheten - omgaan met het fotografisch materiaal en de verschillende afdruktechnieken. Inzoomen, scherp stellen, klikken, ontwikkelen, printen of (laten) afdrukken: het maakproces in een notendop. Maar hoe ziet dit proces er eigenlijk uit? ARTtube liep een dag mee met de fotograaf Machiel Botman (1955). In zijn doka ontwikkelt hij zijn eigen film en drukt hij zijn werk af op barietpapier. Een overzicht van zijn oeuvre is van 17 mei t/m 24 augustus 2014 te zien in zijn solotentoonstelling in Fotomuseum Den Haag. Conservator Wim van Sinderen vertelt over het werk van Botman en licht toe waarom het museum werk van hem heeft aangekocht. In het Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam is tegelijkertijd een duotentoonstelling te zien van twee jonge kunstenaars: Anouk Kruithof (1981) en Paulien Oltheten (1982).

ARTclips - Wanneer wordt een gebruiksvoorwerp kunst?
In deze clip onderzoekt presentator Maurice wat er voor zorgt dat een schijnbaar gewoon gebruiksvoorwerp kunst wordt genoemd. Hij staat met jongeren Youssef, Luca en Daphne stil bij twee werken van Ai Weiwei, een gebogen kleerhanger (Hanging man) en een groep hangende krukjes (Grapes). Het gaat toch vaak om het idee dat een kunstenaar heeft en waarmee hij je met andere ogen naar het voorwerp laat kijken. Met kenner Ischa Havens praat Maurice over het werk Zonder titel van Guido Geelen, een opeenstapeling van gebruiksvoorwerpen zoals beeldscherm, gitaar en een fototoestel, die enigszins in elkaar zijn geduwd en samen een muur vormen. Bij galeriehouder Ruben Bunder checkt hij of er zich een voormalig gebruiksvoorwerp in de galerie bevindt, en waarom dit dan geen gebruiksvoorwerp meer is.

Panamarenko Workstation Biekorfstraat
Biekorfstraat 2 Het atelier van Panamarenko als artistiek monument In het voorjaar van 2013 vindt de opening plaats van het Panamarenkohuis in de Biekorfstraat 2 in Antwerpen. Na jaren van ontmanteling, verbouwing en herinrichting, zal het publiek eindelijk kunnen kennismaken met de bijzondere inhoud en architectuur van het historische pand. Gezien de fragiliteit van dit verborgen stukje cultureel erfgoed, wordt de publieke openstelling gespreid over verschillende weken, zelfs maanden. Op die manier wil het M HKA alle geïnteresseerden de mogelijkheid bieden om in alle rust en exclusiviteit het pand te ontdekken. Het artistieke parcours dat Panamarenko vanaf de jaren 60 tot vandaag heeft afgelegd, is internationaal gekend. Dat het merendeel van zijn oeuvre tot stand kwam in zijn atelier annex woonhuis in de Antwerpse Biekorfstraat 2, is minder geweten. Nochtans is deze artistieke biotoop net zo bijzonder als het oeuvre van de kunstenaar zelf. Panamarenko woonde en werkte meer dan dertig jaar in het merkwaardige hoekhuis in de beruchte volksbuurt Seefhoek. Na zijn vertrek uit de stad in 2002, schonk hij het pand aan het M HKA en werd gestart met de ontmanteling en renovatie van het pand. De artistieke uitbating, gekoppeld aan het verzorgen van publieksevenementen, is in handen van de vzw Panamarenko Collectief. Tussen 2007 en 2010 werd het pand structureel verbouwd en gerestaureerd. Op inhoudelijk vlak werd de volledige inboedel geïnventariseerd, beschreven en gefotografeerd. Het resultaat hiervan verscheen als integrale inventaris in het lijvige boek 'Workstation Biekorfstraat' dat in 2010 verscheen bij Linkeroever Uitgevers onder redactie van Hans Willemse, de coördinator van het Panamarenkohuis in dienst van het M HKA, en lid van het Panamarenko Collectief. Tegelijk met de structurele renovatie van het pand door het M HKA, financierde het Panamarenko Collectief de installatie van een imposant helikopterplatform boven de nok van het dak, waardoor het huis gestaag evolueerde van authentieke kunstenaarswoning naar een artistiek monument. De laatste fase van de transformatie bestond erin - in 2012 - om het pand authentiek te herinrichten met de talloze objecten, materialen en artefacten die er aanvankelijk werden aangetroffen. Niet zonder trots zal het M HKA vanaf begin 2013 het monument publiek openen, waardoor de bezoeker zal kunnen vaststellen dat niets van het technische universum van de kunstenaar verloren is gegaan - integendeel. Het heringerichte pand is de blijvende getuige van een boeiend artistiek avontuur dat voortleeft in de collectie van het M HKA. Bezoek modaliteiten: De indeling van het huis en vooral de fragiliteit van de inboedel laat geen grote aantallen bezoekers toe. Toch zal het mogelijk zijn om vanaf de zomer van 2013 het Panamarenkohuis te bezoeken. Er zal wekelijks een kleine groep van maximaal 8 personen toegelaten worden, die een gepersonaliseerde rondleiding krijgen. Tijdig reserveren via de website van het M HKA is een must. De online ticketing-service is operationeel vanaf april 2013. De toegangsprijs bedraagt 150 euro per groep.

We Live Art: My Monastery is my Studio
It is often thought that modern art and particularly contemporary art is difficult and only understood by experts. But that isn't true. Or rather, it is exactly outside that small circle of 'the initiated' that you find people whose lives have been changed since they got to know art. They quench their thirst for art not only in their private lives but also in their work with all the beautiful, exceptional, elusive and intense images that are shown in the museum. A theatre maker studies drama in the photos of Jeff Wall; a choreographer is inspired by the disfigurements in the paintings of Francis Bacon; the owner of a transport company becomes fascinated with the fate of the constructions he ships. This is the first episode of the new ARTtube series 'We Live Art' that is produced jointly by the partners. In this episode, Dom Bernardus, abbot of the Cistercian Monastery in Berkel-Enschot, explains how he discovered that contemporary art in Museum De Pont offered the possibility of communicating about matters for which there are no words. Bernardus sees a relationship between the monk and the artist, for both aim to help people meet each other on a spiritual level. The abbot organised an exhibition in his abbey and with it gave his own calling a new dimension. In addition, he is, together with brother Isaac, a faithful visitor to Museum De Pont.
