  • eric asked

    are there any plans to re-show this in the future?

  • Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen answered

    Dear Eric, at the moment there are no exhibitions scheduled that include this artwork (but that can change of course). If it's not in an exhibition, it will be accessible to the audience in the new Depot Boijmans Van Beuningen. This building will open on november 6, 2021. It's not clear if this archive will be open on that day or if this will follow shortly after. Best to check before you plan a visit. All best, Lisa Heinis

  • kellyanne fontaine asked

    i want to add your image to a school project if i cite it as Bas Jan Ader 1969 is that correct

  • Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen answered

    Hi Kelly, Since the title is visible on the photo, I understand that you incline to leaving it out. But for a school project I think it might also be relevant to use the complete caption: Bas Jan Ader, Please Don't Leave Me, 1969, gelatin silver print, 26,4 x 33,7 cm, collection Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen, Rotterdam. Good luck with your project! Els
