Cultural weekend : Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen

Last weekend I went on a little cultural trip to the Netherlands with my boyfriend. We spent a day in Rotterdam and spent the night there. The next morning we drove off to Den Haag and Wassenaar. 

The main reason for this trip was my incredible urge to visit Museum Voorlinden (in Wassenaar), so we figured we could make a little roadtrip out of it and visit some other museums on the way.

First up was the Museum Boijmans van Beuningen in Rotterdam. We mainly went to see the permanent collection. It had been seven years since I set foot in this museum and I read about the changes for the presentation. It made me curious. We saw some pieces of the other exhibitions but my photos are mainly focused on the collection itself.

From what I gathered the museum wanted to create a timemachine. The entrance hall shows a sort dialogue between the old and the new. The next room was a dialogue between Donald Judd – Sol Lewitt and some woodcuts showing the Descent from the Cross. The following rooms were more chronologically.

Anyway. I’ll let the photos speak for themselves and encourage you to visit this museum if you are ever in Rotterdam.
