The Heartland exhibtion has been opened on the 4th of October. The last two weeks of installing and working intensively together with the artists, most of which could come to share with us the pleasureable moment of the opening, were fantastic. The opening was a great day in which we were able to show the public eye what we, as curators, organizers, museum staff, artists, musicians, cultural institutions and others involved in the process have accomplished in the last two years of intensive research and collaboration. We would like to say Thank You to all the people that we have met throughout our research travels so far - your hospitality and insights about the Heartland as well as your engagement and participation in the process was inspiring and made it possible to realize this large-scale interdisciplinary exhibition project.
All of you who did not yet have a chance to visit the exhibition, come and visit us at the Van Abbemuseum in Eindhoven to experience Heartland yourself, as Regine Debatty did from blogging about her visit in the museum: we make money not art.
Hard to believe, but only a couple of more days and the political future of the United States and therefore the next US president will be elected. This elected person is not only going to be the president of the United States, but also the person upfront dealing with the affects of the economical crisis.
The day after, if you want to discuss the election with us, you should come to our election brunch on the 5th of November in the museum.
