Since its inception 84 years ago, the Van Abbemuseum has had a tradition of innovation, pioneering and facilitating research. These core values hold true for the preparation of the new collection display, which will take shape throughout 2021 in the museum’s Collection Building. Leading works from an international collection of modern Western art will be presented in a global perspective across three floors.

Minor histories

Chosen for display will be pieces from the collection that have received less attention over the years, as well as recent acquisitions that uniquely represent the times we live in. ‘Minor’ histories - both regional and international - will be a focal point, told by well known and unknown people alike. These stories generate unexpected artworks, offer an insight into the motivations of their creators, and offer surprising perspectives on the future.

Accessibility

Partly thanks to generous support from the Bankgiroloterij, the museum has been experimenting on increasing accessibility for those with disabilities; for example, through the use of tactile replicas and olfactory interpretations that bring famous works of art to life for the blind and partially-sighted. In the new collection display, these experiments will be expanded further for all audience groups, introducing an additional dimension for anyone visiting the exhibition.
