Van Abbemuseum Vitrine: Selection Sander van Doorn

08.06.2019 - 30.09.2019

The Van Abbemuseum Vitrine is a unique collaboration between Van der Valk Hotel Eindhoven, the Van Abbemuseum and designer Piet Hein Eek. In a vitrine, designed and made by Eek, a part of the museum’s collection will be on show. This vitrine, a glass cart, has a central position in the entrance hall of Hotel Eindhoven.

The collaboration between Van der Valk Hotel Eindhoven and the Van Abbemuseum arose in 2017. They found each other in the desire to introduce as many people as possible to the beauty that Eindhoven has to offer.

In this vitrine, there will be regularly changing exhibitions. For this, prominent people from Eindhoven and the region make a choice from the collection of the Van Abbemuseum. The display case with the choice of the fourth guest curator, Sander van Doorn, is on show from 8 June 2019.

The choice of Sander van Doorn

The selection of Sander van Doorn is all about his passion for music. The chosen artworks have music as a theme, or remind him of aspects of his life as a DJ. For example he chose the work Grammofoon (Gramophone) by René Daniëls. “For me it all started with that”, Van Doorn reflects. A piece by John Körmeling with the text ‘klap klap klap’ (clap, clap, clap) reminds him of the applause he gets after his shows, all across the world. He associates Structuur XXXVII (Structure 37) by Peter Struycken with the airplanes in which he spends a lot of time while traveling.

Sander van Doorn (1979) is a Dutch Electronic Dance Music producer and DJ, born in Eindhoven. He started his musical career at 16, with vinyl records and his brother’s Groovestation. He also experimented with drum computers and making his own productions. This led to his breakthrough as a DJ and producer.
