We Are The Collection

by Kummer & Herrman

The AkzoNobel Art Foundation has been collecting art for 25 years, and the international treasure-trove of artworks and stories contained within has been compiled in a tremendous jubilee magazine.
Artists, curators, photographers, art critics, writers and members of the board such as Thierry Vanlancker, Anna Tilroe, Dirk van Weelden, Niña Weijers, Imara Limon, Steven Aalders, Lex ter Braak, Otobong Nkanga, Isaac Julien and many others reflect on the power a collection holds and the themes she’s inextricably bound up with – beauty, zeitgeist, inclusivity, and the importance of art in our work and our lives. The WE in WE ARE THE COLLECTION can be heard sounding throughout in its varied tones.
The catalog, in the guise of a colorful magazine, offers the AkzoNobel Art Foundation the chance to take the collection to the reader. Far from being a static tome, it’s a dynamic collection you can take hold of and open to any page, like a wieldy exhibition.
WE ARE THE COLLECTION is accessible without shying away from complex and current issues. Art of any worth is always multi-layered art. Longer essays take turns with short stories, columns, interviews, themed sections, and spreads created especially for this magazine by artists in the collection.
