HET DEPOT, by Boymans van Beuningen, visit 2022

Weather condition a 1 on a scale of 1 to 10 , so the worst imaginable possible, but after entering this wonder of architecture we fell in love with the building. Functional to host the collection of the Boymans van Beuningen museum, but beside being functional the building has so much to offer. Corners, see through moments, vistas, a roof garden, town view and a restaurant for some nice snacks and of course art, but ….. here is in my personal opinion…. a tiny problem. The buidling is fantastic, but in the building itself there were at least 4 spaces suitable to present small exhibitions and they were not there. A room was filled with the building history and concept of Het DEPOT, the other for the restauration progress of the Boymans, One was filled with 3 large objects by John Block and the largest of them all with one black mechanical work of art and the rest was empty. With so many important and beautiful items at hand it should not be any problem to organise some nice small exhibitions with works directly from out of HET DEPOT. Boymans should use this space and not wait another 3 to 4 years before they can open again. But still an impressive addition to the landscape of dutch museums. well worth visiting!
