Wouter Davidts // Triple Bond

Essays on Art, Architecture and Museums

Wouter Davidts investigates the connection between architecture, the museum as an institution, the museum programme and art. The museum architecture is deployed in a variety of different ways: as an autonomous icon, as a flexible ‘shed’, as a PR instrument, as a memory machine, as a stimulus to urban renewal, as a landscape theme, as a political trump card, as a storage depot for artefacts, as an artist's working place, etc. With many case studies: Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam, Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen, Centre Pompidou, Tate Modern, etc.
