EXPLORE THE MUSEUM THROUGH THE EYES OF TWO DANCERS
Tommy & Rowan are only 17 and 16 years old, but in November, they were declared the winners of Holland's Got Talent. They recently staged a special performance in the Van Abbemuseum, that you can see here.
In this (Dutch) video, we see the Van Abbemuseum through the eyes of Dutch comedian Vincent Bijlo, who was born blind. He shows us that we can experience art in a variety of ways, using different senses. In his words: an “exciting journey of discovery”. Commissioned by the Van Abbemuseum, Parastone Den Bosch created a special 3D tactile object from a painting by Picasso from the museum collection. This way, you can experience what an artwork looks like using your finger tips.
THE CHOICE OF... CHARLES ESCHE
Charles Esche director of the Van Abbemuseum made a special video in which he talks about what art means to him today and how the current crisis can change the world for the better. He chose the artwork Untitled (Wroblewski) (2005) by Wilhelm Sasnal (Tarnów, 1972).
