Maria Barnas' The Reader
The Reader is a Rijksakademie theory workshop project initiated by artist and advisor Maria Barnas. During the last year, Maria Barnas interviewed residents and alumni about reading and the way this relates to their artists’s practice. The artists are asked which specific book they would like to re-read.
A transcript of the interview will be included in the chosen books and will have a specific label. You can find the first inserts in The third policeman by Flann O’Brien (choice of Jason Gomez), The chairs by Eugene Ionesco (choice of Bert Jacobs) and The immortal life of Henrietta Lacks by Rebecca Skloot (choice of Crystal Z. Campbell). The books will be available at the library for all visitors today. Wednesday until Friday from 11h00 to 17h00.

Contemporary Art Collection
Every year, new works are added to the Art Collection. Resident artists donate a work or a study for a work at the end of their work period. Some of these works are featured on the website
The historical and contemporary art collections provide a look on three centuries of art education and artistic practice. The collections are diverse in nature and reflect in this way the diversity of the artists’ interests: there are prints, record sleeves, books, drawings, paintings, plasters, pictures, posters, medals, slides and digital material. Yearly, the Art Collection is being enriched with works by resident artists.
The collections can be visited by appointment.
