Museum in transition - De Lakenhal Leiden

2019

  • De Lakenhal 9934 35zonderstreep 20190617093648
  • Between 2016 and 2019, Karin Borghouts followed the rebuilding process at Museum De Lakenhal in Leiden (NL) with her camera. She strolled through the museum on countless occasions, seeking out powerfulimages of moments of demolition, rediscovered historical details and the building chaos, as well as more unassuming details. These still lifes of the empty museum spaces undergoing renovation are displayed here as witness to a past phase: the museum in transition.
    This is one of the 10 art assigments artists received from Museum The Lakenhal at the occasion of the renovation.
    The construction of the new museum part is realized by HappelCornelisseVerhoeven Architecten. The museum has closed its doors in October 2016 and reopens 20 June 2019. The work of Karin Borghouts is exhibited in the new exhibitionhall of the museum and published in the new museumbook.
