DWDD pop-up museum Amsterdam Van Abbe collection through the eyes of Marc-Marie Huijbregts
De Wereld Draait Door (DWDD, "The World Keeps Turning") is opening a pop-up museum in the Allard Pierson Museum, the archeology museum of the University of Amsterdam, on 29 January 2015. The VARA television programme is celebrating its tenth anniversary with this. The regular guests round the table will furnish part of the Allard Pierson Museum with works stored in ten large museums in the Netherlands in the context of the theme “Hidden Artists”.
The Van Abbemuseum is linked to the cabaret artist and actor Marc-Marie Huijbregts. He will search for works by hidden masters in the museum stores as a guest curator. He will be given the opportunity to furnish one gallery in the Allard Pierson Museum with these works, entirely according to his own ideas and taste.
