Photographer's Note

The Groninger Museum (1994) is not merely a casing for art, it is a work of art in itself, a principle that is occurring to an increasing extent in contemporary (museum) architecture. It is an artwork in the centre of the city, traversed by public space where passers-by are directly confronted by all kinds of works of art. (homepage of the museum)
