    The Van Abbe Museum is one of the most important in Europe. There's nowhere else in the world where you'll find a city with a population of just 200,000 that has such an important museum. The Van Abbe has the ideal scale. It's small enough to be able to define your own artistic policy, but big enough to be able to buy works of art and to pay for a good staff.The Van Abbe Museum is one of the leading museums for modern and contemporary art. After a far-reaching renovation and extension in 2003, the Van Abbe responds to changes in the museum world and ever-increasing public expectations. Alongside a breakthrough exhibitions program presenting the latest developments in modern art, the museum is also showing its own internationally renowned collection, including well known masterpieces by names like Picasso, Chagall and El Lissitzky.

    Exhibition Jef Geys

    by ATLC Written May 18, 2005

    Yesterday I was at the Van Abbe museum in Eindhoven (NL) where Jef Geys had an exhibition. The main feature of this expo was a collage of about 200 snippings from porn magazines. In the 70s it was also exhibited, at least that was the plan. The artists question was: are the viewers shocked or not? The viewers had to sign a paper that they would not be shocked and only then would they be able to view the exhibited piece, thus answering the artists question.
    Anyway, there was a lot to do about that piece back then, and the town council had the artwork removed before the exhibition openend.
    Now, in 2005, the full work is finally up for viewing in the museum. I'm not disputing its artistry or not. It is obviously not to do with say technique (like a Dutch Master's painting) but more with making a statement or triggering people's reaction. That seems enough to make it art.
    Oh well...
