The Momentum in Voorlinden

The Momentum. The tipping point that unleashes a tectonic shift. An artist is perpetually in search of that instant. The second in which that one defining insight emerges, paving the way for new ideas. It’s an instant with which we are all familiar: the deciding moment when everything gains momentum. The point at which mass and speed combine to yield an extraordinary impetus.

Their world is poised on the brink of a tipping point as well. They must make choices regarding climate and migration, issues that are impacting our lives more and more intensely.

Momentum brings together forty works that embody this tension. This selection from their collection unites new and established names working in a wide range of media. Together they offer insights into the personal and collective challenges of our time. With works from artists including Anish Kapoor, Rineke Dijkstra, Jacco Olivier, Esther Tielemans, Ryan Gander, Gabriel Rico and Mona Hatoum.

In Voorlinden Museum on display until 20th of September.
