The Way Beyond Art / Exhibition Design for Van Abbemuseum by Future Anecdotes Istanbul

Between 2017 and 2021 the Van Abbemuseum organises a series of exhibitions and projects using its own collection. In this context the exhibition The Way Beyond Art can be seen in the large hall circuit of the Collection Building from 1 July 2017. It includes post World War II works by, amongst others,  Chto Delat,Corneille, Dan Flavin, Nilbar Güres, Iris Kensmil, Anselm Kiefer, John Körmeling, Taus Makhacheva, Füsun Onur, Dan Peterman, Thomas Schütte and Franz Erhard Walther.

On the basis of three fundamental topics – Land, Home and Work – works are grouped and activated in a new sequence of ‘atmosphere rooms’ for the present. The traditional model of the white cube is rejected in this special setting by Future Anecdotes Istanbul, where extended possibilities for experiencing art in space and in relation to body and mind are tested.
