We work for provinces, communes, companies and consortia. Below is a selection of our clients.

Along the A12 highway, near Laagraven and on the recreation area managed by Down Under, an artwork is to be realised that will bring attention to the New Dutch Water Line. Véronique Baar from QKunst supervises the proces.

An important part of Achmea’s art collection leads back to the insurance company’s role as pioneer in Alternative Workplace Strategies. QKunst made an analysis of the collection to reorganise it in two key collections.

In 2020, QKunst worked on the development of an art policy for the art collection of TU Delft. The heart of this collection consists of works that are bound to either buildings or grounds.

Art library and gallery Heden manages about 15.000 artworks. QKunst supports Heden within taking inventory, valuing and sharpening the collection, using the QKunst collection management application.

In 2012, QKunst was commissioned by 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.

In 2008 QKunst advised KPN on matters of creating a collection and presentation, among other things. Since 2019 QKunst accompanies KPN with the sharpening of the collection.

Alliander’s art collection is closely interwoven with the organisation’s history. After quick scan of the collection, QKunst developed a new art plan together with design agency Trapped in Suburbia. QKunst since then supports Alliander with the collection’s management and preservation.

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.

QKunst has a long-term relationship with the province of Gelderland. In the past years, our team has supported the province with 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.

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.

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