Ask anything

  • Tod Marshall asked

    Is your collection of “catalog” descriptions of 20th century objects available on-line?

  • Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen answered

    Hi Tod, we have some collection catalogues online, i.e. Piranesi, Early Netherlandisch drawings, Italian drawings and our collection of Surrealism, but unfortunately not the complete 20the century collection. Still, you might find it interesting to see our research page on the website: https://www.boijmans.nl/en/collection/research
    Kind regards, Els

  • P.H. Michels asked

    Heeft Boijmans werk van Hans Hovy?

    Beste mijnheer of mevrouw Michels, het museum bewaart één werk van Hans Hovy, namelijk 'Culptures by Night' dat Hovy in 2012 in opdracht van Boijmans maakte voor de tentoonstelling Kunst4Kids. Per aparte email stuur ik u de basisgegevens met een plaatje. Hartelijke groet, Els

More information

David Claerbout uses light and time as his primary mediums and sees their effect as the foremost agents of communication. Architecture is frequently represented in his work, the tones are uniform and sombre. In this work by Claerbout, the image initially seems to have been frozen as if in a photograph. Only after a while do the subtle changes of light and shadow become apparent. The film’s 38 minutes correspond with the actual time needed for the sun to pass over that part of the facade. David Claerbout's work intensifies the spectator's perception: you are made aware that you are looking at an image.
