Loot - 10 stories
Jongsma + O’Neill x Mauritshuis
14 September 2023 - 7 January 2024
Suppose you are the director of a museum that houses art that was once stolen. How do you deal with it? Should you return it? Do you leave it there? And if you leave it there, are you as a museum complicit in looting?
The exhibition Loot - 10 stories shares the struggle museums have with stolen art. Where did the looted objects come from? Why were they stolen? With a VR headset on, you suddenly find yourself in a secret art storage. In a tunnel, a kilometre underground, you're all of a sudden eye-to-eye with a stolen Rembrandt. How did it end up there?
Please note: Due to the limited capacity of the unique VR experiences within the exhibition, it is necessary to book a ticket online in advance.
