The film DEPOT – Reflecting Boijmans by Sonia Herman Dolz premiered at International Film Festival Rotterdam (IFFR) February 2023

  • Press Release
  • June 2023
  • Rotterdam - the Netherlands
Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen

The film DEPOT – Reflecting Boijmans by Sonia Herman Dolz premiered at International Film Festival Rotterdam IFFR 2023.

“While Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen had to close in 2019 due to large-scale renovation, a completely new building was created nearby that would open its doors to the public: the Depot – a shared dream of architect Winy Maas and Boijmans director Sjarel Ex. This documentary not only takes us through the creation of the world’s first fully publicly accessible depot, but also draws beautiful parallels with the construction of the current museum building in the 1930s on the basis of archive material from Bouw Museum Boymans.

Maas and Ex guide the viewer with contagious pleasure through both the stripped down museum and the brand new depot and share their enthusiastic view of the past and present. The film, a monument to the future, unlocks the secrets of the museum between the acts and reveals details that are usually hidden from view. Both buildings reveal themselves, a vault with art treasures is opened. The result is a loving symphony for art and architecture.

DEPOT – Reflecting Boijmans is the latest film by filmmaker Sonia Herman Dolz, known for award-winning documentaries such as Romance de Valentia (1994) about the art of bullfighting and Lágrimas negras (1998), about an aging Cuban band. She also made the documentary Conducting Boijmans (2015).” (text by Christiaan Boesenach IFFR)

During the general meeting of the Netherlands Association of Corporate Art Collections (VBCN) on May 10th 2023, Ali Keles took office as the new chairman. He succeeds Anne Clement van Vugt, who has been chairman since 2020 and whose term of office expired this year.

Ali Keles (1983) is an investor and founder of Lakeside Capital Partners, a financial services and investment group based in the Netherlands. In addition, he collects contemporary art that is housed in the Lakeside Collection, and thus joined the VBCN in 2019. He has been a board member of the VBCN since 2021.

With Keles as the new chairman, the VBCN is committed to further professionalizing the services it provides to its members. In addition, an important spearhead will be intensifying cooperation with the Dutch cultural and museum sector, but also between the affiliated corporate collections.

Keles strongly cares about the long-term commitment of the corporate collections and wants to embed this by developing a widely supported Charter for Art & Culture. Increasing the sense of responsibility of companies and (semi) public institutions to invest in the Dutch art and culture sector is evident to him.

In his opening speech, Keles emphasized: “Companies and (semi) public institutions that have committed themselves to the VBCN and that have all built up treasures of art collections over the years are an important part of the Dutch art sector. This makes them a great support for the arts and their creators. Recent research by the UvA has shown that the VBCN members collectively conserve more than 100,000 works of art and account for almost a quarter of all art purchases in the Netherlands.”

The VBCN is very pleased with the appointment of Keles and at the same time thanks Anne Clement van Vugt – senior advisor and art coordinator at Erasmus University Rotterdam – for her chairmanship. Under her inspired leadership, the VBCN membership grew, the association’s memory was recorded, the mission and vision updated, the anniversary publication VBCN VIEW was realized and the association presented the fourth edition of the VBCN OPEN curator’s prize. About the VBCN The Dutch Association of Corporate Collections (VBCN) is an independent non-profit knowledge network for Dutch companies and (semi) public institutions with an art collection. The members bring a large and diverse audience into contact with art and create new connections between art and society. This makes the VBCN a distinctive player in the cultural field.

Parts of the interview:

Art collectors about their collection. It always starts with that one work of art that you fall head over heels for. Five art collectors talk about that love, which leaves you wanting more.

In my eyes, art was something for museums. The fact that you can also buy art was not something that lived with me. Until I came to the PAN for the first time around the age of nineteen and saw gallery owners, met artists. That’s how I started buying a piece of art every now and then.

A purchase always starts with my heart. A work of art does something to you, touches you, moves you, can inspire, raise questions, abrade, but it can also just be very beautiful. Aesthetics can be an important reason to acquire art.
