“The coming twenty years we’ll be okay, with all the baby boomers retiring. But after that we’ll have to come up with a different way of doing things otherwise museums will soon be obsolete.” It was Arnoud Odding, director of Rijksmuseum Twenthe, who said this when I asked him about the most pressing priorities in the Dutch art sector. Odding has given the subject a lot of thought. In 2004 he published Het Gedroomde Museum (The Dream Museum), about the museum as a place for... [more]

Holding up a mirror to an awakening art market   Pick-button-5bf6c1b36c3b74ec8f312c7c9f6f1ae3

There is a reason why there are no pictures of art works accompanying this article. Tino Sehgal does not allow his work to be documented in the form of script, film, or photograph. Sehgal’s work consists of performances, putting him in the category of ultra-ephemeral, verging on the mythical. When a Sehgal-piece gets sold – his dealer, Marian Goodman Gallery, has them on offer in editions of four or six – the deal has to be sealed by the artist himself in a conversation with the...

Clutching cups of tea from thermos flasks to warm our hands on a cold evening in a classroom-like space at NASA (New Art Space Amsterdam), I and roughly thirty others listened to a Dutch film maker expressing his love for a 19th century anarchist. Cees Hin, one of the evening’s speakers, had grown great affection for Voltairine de Cleyre. Especially after googling her name and seeing her eyes – her words had apparently made less of an impression on him than her looks. De Cleyre (1866 -... [more]

Some Full Circle on Randall's Island: John Ahearn at Frieze Projects   Pick-button-5bf6c1b36c3b74ec8f312c7c9f6f1ae3

Some people living in New York have great views, most don’t. Where I lived in Greenpoint, Brooklyn, the view from the front of the apartment overlooked an off-ramp from the Brooklyn-Queens Expressway. Day and night trucks would rumble past, slamming into potholes and screeching on their brakes. The building would literally shake—a constant earthquake—with the only respite on Sunday mornings or during the occasional blizzard. If any windows were left open, within a few hours a layer of fine soot wou... [more]
