DELINKING AND RELINKING - New collection display
This major multi-sensory collection display, which you can see, touch, hear and smell, let’s you experience art differently. Featuring 120 pieces of art and spanning all five floors of the museum’s collection wing, Delinking and Relinking invites you to experience art differently. Sometimes in the literal sense, by touching, smelling or listening to it; other times metaphorically, by giving expression to different, lesser-known voices. Mostly inspiring and occasionally confrontational, Delinking and Relinking spans more than a century of art history, with Hommage à Apollinaire by Marc Chagall from 1913 as earliest work and This Means Tableau from 2019 by Laure Prouvost as most recent work.
With over 25 multi-sensory tools, including texts in Braille, scent interpretations, tactile drawings and soundscapes, Delinking and Relinking represents the first, fully multi-sensory collection display in the Netherlands. Besides enriching the museum experience for everyone, the exhibition is accessible to a wide audience, including visually or hearing-impaired visitors and wheelchair users.
FIVE FREE MULTI-MEDIA TOURS
You have the option of five different media tours to guide you through the exhibition. The Introduction Tour and Family Tour offer a general overview for both young and old. If you want to deepen your visit, you can also choose the Bodily Encounters Tour, the Love Letters Tour or The Broader Story Tour. You can access the tours for free from September 18 by downloading the Smartify app on your smartphone.
The exhibition was developed in collaboration with various experts in the field of physical accessibility. Also consulted were The Office of Queer Affairs and Wie Zijn Wij (Who Are We), two interest groups that have a long-standing working relationship with the museum to help introduce broader perspectives to the museum.
