DE COLLECTIE IS…Lidewij Edelkoort

THE COLLECTION IS…Lidewij Edelkoort - Boek ter gelegenheid van de overdracht van de Edelkoort collectie aan het Van Abbemuseum

An exhibition (and catalog) where design and art are shown side by side and engage in a dialogue. With shifting scenarios about the human condition, the current zeitgeist, and social context. It shows how art and design have grown closer to each other and how powerful they can form a bond together. How they even need each other and are no longer clearly distinguishable from each other. On the occasion of the acquisition of the Edelkoort Collection, this exhibit asks questions about what a collection actually is and how everyone can give a personal answer. Works that have been collected by various idiosyncratic directors of the Van Abbemuseum meet the autonomous design collection of the visionary former chairwoman of the Design Academy Eindhoven. All have achieved a lot within small budgets. Art and design are often a collection themselves and consist of a grouping or collage of objects or works. This reinforces the image of a collective era.

THE COLLECTION IS…Lidewij Edelkoort - Boek ter gelegenheid van de overdracht van de Edelkoort collectie aan het Van Abbemuseum

Ter gelegenheid van de verwerving van de Edelkoort Collectie stelt deze tentoonstelling vragen over wat een collectie eigenlijk is en hoe iedereen een persoonlijk antwoord kan geven. Werken die door verschillende eigenzinnige directeuren van het Van Abbemuseum zijn verzameld, maken kennis met de autonome designcollectie van de visionaire oud-voorzitter van de Design Academy Eindhoven. Allemaal hebben ze veel bereikt binnen kleine budgetten. Kunst en design zijn vaak zelf een verzameling en bestaan uit een groepering of collage van objecten of werken.Dit versterkt het beeld van een collectief tijdperk.
