Museum door de Stad


Museum door de Stad travels through the city with installations inspired by the Eindhoven Museum’s cultural-historical collection and the history of the city itself. We'll be back in Woensel from April on!

GLOW

Donation (schenking)

Artist Paul Panhuysen made this model of his street, the Wilgenroosstraat. In the seventies he researched how visual arts could help solve problems in a street. With the participation of residents, he made a design for more than the standard ‘pavement, parking lanes and roadway’. Unfortunately, the plan was never implemented. 

Memory Game

Ivo Hulskamp has made a life size Memory game made with pictures of the Eindhoven Museum collection that have to do with the Second World War. Every month the game will be located in a different location in the city, right now it is standing by Catharinaplein. Photos: Nick Bookelaar 

Still for everyone?

The latest asset to Eindhoven Museum is a bottle from lemonade factory A. van den Bemd. It probably dates from the first half of the thirties. In 1929, A. van den Bemd owned a beer bottling company and a mineral water factory (lemonade factory) at the Hoogstraat 252 in Eindhoven in Gestel, he also was an agent for the Amstel beer brewery. In 1934 the factory moved to the Laagstraat.

Catharinaplein

In the month October, Checkpoint Eindhoven and the life size Memory game will be at Catharinaplein across the entrance of the Heuvel. Checkpoint Charlie displays portraits of Eindhoven citizens in their current occupation and the occupation they would have if Eindhoven was never liberated and we still would have been occupied. What occupation would they have? Would they still have been a rapper, artist or entrepreneur, or would they have been working in the army, working in a factory or be jobless? The Memory game is made with pictures of the Eindhoven Museum collection that have to do with the Second World War. Photo: Nick Bookelaar

The installation by Aart van Asseldonk shows portraits by Britt Roelse of Eindhoven citizens in their current occupation and their occupation that they would have if Eindhoven was never liberated. The installations also include the Dilemma-machine by Jelle Mastenbroek and Daniël de Bruin: Do you push your boundaries when your freedom is at stake?

Brabantse Erfgoedprijs 2019

Museum door de Stad is one of the eight nominees for the ‘Brabantse Erfgoedprijs 2019’ by Erfgoed Brabant. Out of 56 submissions, the professional jury selected eight initiatives who have a chance of winning the prize, the winner will be announced on November 7.

Tablecloth from 1905

Eindhoven Museum recently received a special tablecloth. The rug was made in honour of the engagement party on March 12 1905, of the double engagement of both the eldest son and eldest daughter in the Keunen-Leen family. The table cloth had 80 embroidered signatures by the people that were present. These were mainly people from the Eindhoven elite at the beginning of the twentieth century, such as Eindhoven manufacturer families. The linen cloth is professionally embroidered, possibly by religious who at that time often provided linen with monograms. A beautiful piece of Eindhoven history!

The collection is online again

The Eindhoven Museum collection is online again. Of course, the collection can also be seen in Museum door de Stad (May 19-24that Strijp-S during Dutch Technology Week), but now also 24/7 on the website again.
