Temporary Museum

The Temporary Museum is an initiative of Nathalie Faber (curator) and Claartje Kortbeek (producer) from 60 Layers of cake foundation. Every hour, our museum team – made up of young Amsterdam locals and newcomers – will be holding a guided tour for the visitors.

After a successful first edition in the former Shell Tower, the present edition explores connections with the new residents of the – equally temporary – asylum seekers’ centre set up here. The participating artists and designers were invited to make new work for the occasion. Examples include Leonard van Munster’s tree fountain in the courtyard, Teun Castelein’s Bijlmer Hammam in an old cell block, Mayra Sérgio’s tea landscape and Jan Hoek’s transformed scooters. The Museum will continue to expand its collection throughout the exhibition period.
