Museums are one of those things I only visit when I’m traveling, and I used to be an art student! Shame on me! So when Chantal organized a instagram-bloggers-museum-meet, I decided to tag along. With a group of girls we visited the Van Abbemuseum in Eindhoven, which I’ve only visited once before. ‘Once before’ actually means 10 years ago, when I still was an art student… I’m getting old!
Van Abbe is a museum for contemporary art and after that day I think it became one of my favourites! Even though I’ve studied art and sometimes even consider myself an artist, I’m not always a fan of museums. Somehow I find creating my own ‘art’ way more interesting than watching other people their art. Specially when it’s that vague modern art stuff where someone pisses in a different jar every day and then exhibit it all together as a piece of art. Not even kidding, a schoolmate of mine did that. Forever scarred!
So no, I’m not always really into art museums, but I really really enjoyed the Van Abbemuseum. Whenever I’m abroad, I just really feel like going to a museum. And I do really enjoy going to museums, it really feels like a treat. So yesterday it just felt a little like I was traveling, in a different country than my own, with a bigger city and all these expats talking in English. Such a weird feeling! I decided that I should do this more often, going to museums and meet up with strangers from the internet :) I had such a great day!
Excuse the incoherent babbling, what I wanted to say is: the Van Abbemuseum is awesome, if you’re somehow near Eindhoven one day, you should visit it! Here are a few pictures from the day, but not too many because I don’t want to spoil the museum for you, like a typical movie trailer does!! I hate it when you watch a trailer and it’s basically a summary of the entire movie, ugh. Okay that was random. Bye!
P.S. Considering writing in both Dutch and English again… y/n? I feel English is more universal, obviously, and I do have a few foreign readers. However, sometimes writing in Dutch comes a bit more natural. But… other times I’m too lazy to write the same post twice! Sigh. Struggles!
