QKunst helps Achmea bring focus to the art collection, according to the ‘Netherlands guidelines for deaccessioning of museum objects’ (LAMO).

Due to the renovation of all its offices, Alliander wanted to redefine the composition and use of its art collection. QKunst made a quick scan of the collection and developed an art policy that makes way for a special replacement of the artworks.

In 2012, QKunst was commissioned bij the City of Amsterdam to take on the artistic guidance of the art for a new metro line running from north to south Amsterdam.

 

QKunst also accompanied the City in deaccessioning art from the BKR-period, a government regulation in place from 1956 to 1987, allowing visual artists to receive an income in exchange for their services or artworks.

When the Fries Museum’s collection was moved to a new provincial depot, it was time to take a good look at the collection. QKunst accompanied the museum with the selection and relocation of objects that no longer fit in the regional collection.

In 2008, KPN’s new strategy – ‘back to growth’ – was a reason to take a closer look at the brand image of the collection. QKunst did recommendations concerning communication, presentation, collection building and organisation.

Pension organisation PGGM manages a corporate art collection. The expansion of the headquarters and the implementation of a new workplace strategy were taken as an opportunity to sharpen the art policy. PGGM asked QKunst to formulate this policy and accompany its implementation.

Artist Ram Katzir and artistic duo Hertog Nadler were commissioned by the City of Zwolle to work on an art route that connects the train station to the inner city and refers to Zwolle’s history: Portal. The artists asked QKunst to accompany them behind the scenes.

QKunst has committed to a long-term relationship with the province of Gelderland. Team member Imee Luijten works as an art consultant for the province on site one day a week. Among other things, she is responsible for advice concerning management, communication, registrations and loans for use.

With an extensive renovation and changes within the organisation ahead, the province of South-Holland developed a new art policy. QKunst helps with the implementation of the policy, working closely together with the provincial art commission.

Commissioned by the Utrecht Centre for Fine Arts (CBKU), QKunst formulated an art policy plan for the province of Utrecht in the spring of 2011. The starting point was the opportunities for the organisation rising from the new building. QKunst and CBKU together accompanied the implementation of the policy.

QKunst is preferred partner of the Rabobank art department for art-related advice to local banks. To get an insight into the art collections, QKunst performs stocktakings and appraisals of the different collections, in order to give custom advice to each individual bank.

All locations of Rijndam Revalidation in Rotterdam and surroundings have art on display. Making the collection more visible was one of the pillars of the newly developed art policy by QKunst.

Commissioned by and together with ArtOlive, QKunst accompanies the yearly changing exhibition of the art collection of housing corporation Ymere.
