Making Space for Lace #1: The Why

00:03:02 82 Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen
In the vlog of Making Space for Lace our correspondent Lotte will take you behind the scenes in Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen: in this episode, why?

Lotte searches for the why. She talks to curator Mienke Simon Thomas about the necessity of ‘reassessing’ and how ‘de-accessioning’ works.

About Making Space for Lace

From 11 March to 11 June 2017 museum employees are publicly cataloguing and re-assessing the lace collection of Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen. The re-assessment of the lace collection should give a better picture of the role that this aspect of the collection can play in the museum in the future. What makes the project unique, is that the process can be followed live in the museum. In this vlog series lace correspondent Lotte Bloem takes the viewer behind the scenes to follow this process closely.

Until 20 August 2017 the presentation Making Space for Lace is on view at Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen.
