Vedute asks designers, artists, architects and others to make an object about the concept of space. Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen presented a selection of sixteen objects in the second ‘Vedute Backstage’. This time the presentation will feature works by Dutch and Belgian exhibitors to coincide with Design Derby: Netherlands-Belgium (1815-2015).
The aim of Vedute, a foundation set up in 1991, is to build a library of 'spatial manuscripts'. Those taking part are asked to visualize the concept of space within 44 x 32 x 7 cm. The works fit in a standard box file. Twenty-three years after it was established, Vedute’s collection contains 210 different solutions to this task. In this presentation the museum is showing work by Robbrecht & Daem Architecten, Mels Couwel, Job Koelewijn and others.
