Museum Van Loon
| 26-10-2020 - 29-11-2020
What you see when you look at art differs from person to person. Perhaps a work of art is reminding you of something from the past or it moves or disturbs you. Every person looks at art from their own background and experience and this is all taken into account when looking at art. The meaning and relevance of the artwork therefore partly depends on who is looking at it, and that makes it interesting and different. This autumn, Talking Heads in Museum Van Loon will focus on 6 different works of art, consisting of interior items, paintings and objects. For each of the 6 artworks, 3 different people, including Jennifer Tosch, Jody & Ananda van Reliving and Rosita Steenbeek, give their perspective on the artworks. What does the work do to them? What does it remind them of? Does it inspire? Does it excite? What do they want to say about the work? These perspectives add a new layer and allow you to get to know the artworks in a different way. New layers and meanings present themselves. Visitors are also invited to share their own story and perspective in the museum.
The presentation is also a way to add multiple stories to the collection of Museum Van Loon and the kick-off of a larger and more extensive exhibition that will start next April. Residents of Amsterdam are invited to shed new light on the museum's collection and add perspectives.
