In episode 9 of Boijmans TV, you'll meet Jordi - a skaterboy, slightly deranged and incredibly enthusiastic - who takes his father Marco to the museum.

Marco has to get used to things; couldn't those two Swiss guys, Lutz & Guggisberg, have done a better job of finishing off their installation? But for artist Copy, who this times arrives at Mandy’s desk with his companion, the work of Lutz & Guggisberg is a genuine source of inspiration. Perhaps they can find a plinth somewhere for their constructed sculpture.

And while this is taking place, Bregje is showing four young helpers of St Nicholas around the museum. And just when they arrive at the 17th century portrait of Jan van Amstel and his wife Anna Boxhoorn by Abraham van den Tempel, three business-men from Ghana join their group. They love the costumes of the Piets and think they perfectly match the painting. After an explanation by Bregje about wealth and colour contrast, everybody suddenly understands why St Nicolas is white and wears a long beard.

About Boijmans TV

Boijmans TV is a new programme about art, based on an idea by Wilfried de Jong. It is more than an art magazine. We do not only meet the artist, but also the museum visitor, the attendant and the employee of technical services.

Each episode of Boijmans TV can be viewed here on ARTtube after it has been broadcast.
