Item description for Imagine You Are Standing here in Front of Me: Caldic Collectie by Jannet de Goede, Boris Groys, Marcel Broodthaers & Andreas Gursky...
How does a museum build up its own collection? How do the choices made by an institution, and the eventual content of its collection, compare to that of a private collection? These questions and many more about the nature of art collecting are addressed in Imagine You Are Standing here in Front of Me, an attractive, generously illustrated overview of the Caldic Collectie, the sizeable, kaleidoscopic, and willfully accumulated private collection of Joop van Caldenborgh. Forming the collection are works by an exceptional array of contemporary photographers, including Rineke Dijkstra, Jeff Wall, Bernd & Hilla Becher, Thomas Struth, Andreas Gursky, and Inez van Lamsweerde. The collection also contains, as a quixotic treat, the complete graphic works of Marcel Broodthaers. Accompanying texts include philospher/art theorist Boris Groys's consideration of the artwork-artist-collector relationship; Dutch critic Sven Ltticken's close look at works in the van Caldenborgh collection; Jannet de Goede's tracing of its history and background; and Brooke Alexander's interview with the collector. Joop van Caldenborgh, chairman and director of Caldic Chemie in Rotterdam and chairman of the Rotterdam Chamber of Commerce, was a member of the Dutch committee for Manifesta 1 and displays part of his collection to the public on a 50-acre wooded park near The Hague. Published in conjunction with Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen. Artists Include: Bernd & Hilla Becher, Rineke Dijkstra, Andreas Gursky, Thomas Struth, Jannet de Goede, Thomas Ruff, Marcel Broodthaers, Jeff Wall, and Inez van Lamsweerde.
Edited by Jaap Guldemond. Essays by Jannet de Goede, Boris Groys and Sven Ltticken.
