THE KUNSTHAL OF EVERYTHING
UNTIL SUNDAY 22ND MAY 2016
--------------------------

 

First things first ... The Kunsthal of Everything is in full swing and YOMUST VISIT!

The Kunsthal of Everything is the most magnificent assembly of non-academic stuff ever presented by The Museum of Everything. It is certainly the most open-mouthed display ever staged in Holland - and one the most immersive in Europe since the diminutive bald eagle Jean Dubuffet last flapped his wings. 

But don’t assume our correctitude. Here are some marginally-doctored quotes by professionals:

     The Museum of Everything's largest exhibition
     to date once more proves its importance.

John Maizels, Raw Vision     


     An expansive show of undersung (don’t call
     them outsider) artists.

Saskia de Rothschild, New York Times     

         
     Who determines that art is only art if it is made by
     someone who calls himself an artist? Can something
     not just be beautiful or special, or <<mind blowing>>? 

Rinskje Koelewijn, NRC     

         
     The Museum of Everything is not only an exhibition,
     but a fascinating journey through creativity and
     the human mind. 

Rocco Moliterni, La Stampa

If thinking is your thing, along with interrupting, talking over other people and then being forcibly ejected from a public space, then The Symposium of Everything is for you. 

The Museum of Everything has assembled an auspicious chain-gang of historians, writers and makers to form a nationwide lecture and screening series... and it all kicks off with The Weekend of Everything: two days of dandy discourse and on-screen goings-on - and all completely FREE OF CHARGE.


THE WEEKEND OF EVERYTHING
-------------------------
15th, 16th and 17th April
AT THE KUNSTHAL ROTTERDAM

PHOTOGRAPH AMNESTY // COMPETITION
----------------------------------

 


To celebrate The Weekend of Everything, The Museum of Everything has decided temporarily to lift its lifetime ban on amateur photography and invite YOU to participate in The photographs of Everything

Throughout the weekend, we will be asking ALL VISITORS to upload their favourite photographs onto instagram using #musevery - or email it to musevery@gmail.com

Get inspired and check out our images: please click HERE or head to www.musevery.com/exhibition6/photos.
 



 

And so dear friends, we hope you know by now that outsider art does not exist, that art brut is a nonsense, and that categories are catch-alls to describe messy human behaviour. 

We welcome you not with some antiquated notion of the other, but in celebration of the we, the us, the democracy of the creative gesture and the universal right to artistic equivalence.

 


Try clicking HERE or HERE or HERE or HERE. And if you believe in this as we do, don't just read history, make history.

Yours in everything,

The Museum of Everything

PS If you can’t take the heat, then get out of the kitchen HERE.
