Collection management

QKunst manages corporate and public art collections. We provide value-driven inventories, registration, and analysis. We use our collection management application and a specially developed Value Map to determine the specific features of a collection. In the interest of collection mobility, we also use this map in case of a relocation. In recent years, we have successfully relocated works in museums. We also create temporary exhibitions on location, and we furnish office buildings with art.

QKunst can undertake the complete collection management but is also available for separate components such as a complicated restoration project. In 2021, QKunst supervised the restoration of Keith Haring’s mural on the Koelhuis in Amsterdam. Furthermore, we provide advice on the development of art policies, including creating a vision on policy. Since 2011 we have been the preferred partner of Rabobank in terms of art consulting for all its local branches.

The KPN Art Collection is one of the leading corporate collections in the Netherlands. In 2008, QKunst provided advice regarding collection building and presentation. Since 2019, we have been involved in improving the focus and presentation of the collection.

Because the KPN Art Collection has public roots, KPN wants to make it visible outside its own office buildings and present it in public spaces. In 2022, QKunst placed 800 works of art from the core collection of KPN at the Depot Boijmans Van Beuningen. Thanks to the public depot space, this part of the collection, which includes work from renowned artists such as Gijs Assmann, Rineke Dijkstra, Marc Mulders, Erwin Olaf and Maria Roosen, is also open to the public.

Province of South Holland

The Province of South Holland cherishes the cultural-historical value of its collection, which is built around artists with ties to the region. After inventorying all artworks, QKunst has been assisting the province in making the collection permanently accessible.

We provided public registration and restoration of paintings by Bob Bonies and Peter Struycken, among others. In addition, we supervised the creation of a depot, from drawing board to realisation, and supported the redesign of the provincial house, in collaboration with the art committee of the province.

Wageningen University & Research

Based on the vision that art and science reinforce each other, Wageningen University & Research (WUR) displays its art collection in the university buildings and on the campus grounds. In 2019, QKunst guided WUR’s art committee in formulating and implementing a collection plan, using the QKunst Collection collection Management management application.

Since then, QKunst has provided support for the restoration, reframing, photography, and presentation of the collection. To this end, we collaborate with specialised restorers for paper, textiles, sculptures, and paintings.
