What role do the visual arts and museums play in our society? And what role might they be able to play? The unassailable position long enjoyed by art is no longer self-evident. This means that the authority of the museum has also come under pressure. Museums nowadays tend to focus more on the number of visitors than the broader societal value of the museum. In this stimulating essay, Rutger Wolfson provokes a fundamental discussion of the current artistic climate. Het museum als plek voor ideeën [The museum as a space for ideas] redefines the institution of the museum.
