This temporary location was developed in close cooperation with Anna Vastgoed en Cultuur and the Rijksgebouwendienst. We are especially excited about this new location because it allows us to give more visibility and a larger social relevance to our program.

55 years ago, Marcel Duchamp predicted — in the context of the symposium Where do we go from here at the Philadelphia Museum of Art — that die Kunst am Rande einer Welt entstehen wird, die durch das ökonomische Feuerwerk geblendet ist.*

Meanwhile it seems that the ökonomische Feuerwerk transformed into a serious volcano eruption. And the german culture filosopher Peter Sloterdijk is convinced that we have to change significantly, if we want to be still alive over 100 year. In the context of those ideas, we see a bigger urge then ever, to not only present the established art canon, but especially the emerging art at the spot it deserves.

In the most beautiful salons, inside the most beautiful palaces, in the most beautiful avenues.

Huis Huguetan is part of ANNA@LV34. ANNA@LV34 is temporarily managed by Anna Vastgoed & Cultuur, a link in real estate that connects, facilitates and develops en executes creative concepts by managing real estate. Anna offers creative solutions for vacant properties.

Rijksvastgoedbedrijf is the owner of the property.
