12.00-12.45 Film MAM. Theater maker Adelheid Roosen records and enters into the world of her mother, who is suffering from Alzheimer's disease. It is a very visual, loving and humorous attempt to gain an understanding of an elusive disease. The film is followed by a talk with Adelheid Roosen (film and talk in Dutch). This screening is related to the Alzheimer programme Unforgettable Van Abbe.
13.30    Theatrical tour Once Upon a Time…. The Collection Now
During the theatrical tour wondrous things will happen. A forgotten and dusty painting breaks out of its frame to commence on a voyage of discovery. It’s a portrait of the eccentric H.H. van Abbe, a distant relative of Henri van Abbe. She is made of the most beautiful pastel shades and searches for her own personal place in the wall. While searching, she discovers a whole new world of artworks. Inconceivable forms, surprising colours and images. Everything tells a different story. Which is sometimes very hi ha hilarious…
