The Van Abbemuseum cordially invites you to the free two-day event Change Feeling on Thursday 7 and Friday 8 July.
Conceived as a dialogue across research, mediation and performance practices, Change Feeling aspires to read and experience practice closely, with friends and collaborators, to interface with the possibility and struggle of change in a heritage institution. The programme includes keynote conversations, performances, book launches, research presentations and exhibition tours to gain insight into the possibilities and struggles of a museum in relation to change.
