Van Gogh Mile art route in Amsterdam

Artist Henk Schut installs the Red Line (photo: Martijn van den Dobbelsteen)The Van Gogh Mile is a special walk from the Van Gogh Museum to the Hermitage Amsterdam. The route, designed by the artist Henk Schut, will lead visitors along an inspiring path to the Van Gogh Museum’s temporary location at the Hermitage Amsterdam.

With the city of Amsterdam as his background, Schut’s work in the public space will stimulate walkers’ senses with audio artworks, virtual apparitions, text and images, inspired by the letters of Vincent van Gogh. Prepare to be amazed by the installations, texts, images, audio artworks and virtual representations, and see Amsterdam from another perspective!

This 1.4-mile artwork will be created in the public space and will be constantly evolving throughout the seven months of the Van Gogh Museum’s stay in the Hermitage.

The Van Gogh Mile is a triptych consisting of the 'Red Line', sound installations, and the Van Gogh Mile app. These layers give different dimensions to the same image. Together they demonstrate that the themes discussed in Vincent’s letters are still relevant today.

The Van Gogh Mile starts at Museumplein and takes around 30 minutes. Participation is free, including the app (downloadable via free wifi at the Museum Shop hotspot). Share your experiences on Facebook or Twitter!
