Theatre Tour: Lost in Art

Hey psst…. Do you know me? I am Loek, the small sign indicating your location in Google Maps.

Through the internet I take you around the world. Now I want to go into the real world to view the Van Abbemuseum with you. I want to take a look behind the art, or feel what it is like when you blow against it, or feel what it does to you when you imitate it.

Because…. I want to get lost in art!

Will you help Loek to discover the art and the world around her?

Are you going to help Loek experience the art and the world around her?

Loek takes you through the collection presentation The Way Beyond Art. The tour is intended for the entire family. The recommended age is 6+, but younger brothers and sisters are of course also welcome. This tour is in Dutch.
