The Beeldbrekers (literally: ‘ReFramers’) represent young adults with a multicultural background. They act as a bridge between the Van Gogh Museum and a new generation of museum visitors.
The Beeldbrekers broaden the museum’s outlook. They ask critical questions and find new points of departure to make the story of Van Gogh relevant to people today.
The Beeldbrekers discover new layers in the perception of the Vincent van Gogh’s life and work and communicate about them. Thanks to this exchange, the museum can continue to develop and to function as a relevant and up-to-date place where as many people as possible feel at home.
The questions the Beeldbrekers ask themselves are: how can we change existing images that we no longer wish to convey? How can we create new images to contribute to an equal world?
Call us Beeldbrekers
We are the mirror image of the children that the world often forgets . Of the youths who bring new perspectives. We are the keys that open closed doors.
