Van Abbe Museum - Choose a role to explore arts in different ways
This modern and contemporary art museum is located in the Eindhoven, a city in the south of The Netherlands. The museum name, Van Abbe, is not from a famous painter or designer name. It is from a private collector and cigar manufacturer, Henri Van Abbe.
It has more than 2700 works of art collections from Netherlands, Flemish and Germany, and covers the period starting 1900. You can see some artworks from Hommage a Appollinaire (1912) by Chagall until Repetition (2005) by Artur Zmijewski. But the Lissitzky collection is the major importance there.
There is a program called Play Van Abbe. It is designed for the visitors. There are four roles that we can choose: The Pilgrim, The Tourist, The Flaneur and The Worker. Each of these roles experiences the museum in a different way and each role has their own tools to explore the museum. This program will be available from 26th February 2011 until 20th August 2011.
