Exhibition

How close are the ties between visual art and design really? Lidewij Edelkoort and the Van Abbemuseum answer this question with the exhibition The collection is.... during Dutch Design Week 2022.

Design meets visual art

In the 10 rooms of the Old Building, The collection is... poetically explores the line between autonomous design and visual art. The interplay between the two disciplines allows you to think creatively about social issues such as climate change, migration, loneliness and the relationship between the city and the countryside. Prominent pieces in the exhibition include works by Maarten Baas, Jurgen Bey, Nacho Carbonell, Piet Hein Eek, Hella Jongerius and Studio Job.

“It’s a revolution in the museum world to unify and merge these two spheres and to bring them on an equal footing”
-Lidewij Edelkoort

Practical

During Dutch Design Week, from 22 to 30 October, The collection is... can only be visited with a DDW wristband. Before and after DDW a regular museum ticket is required.
