Description

In 2014, ART IS THERAPY by guest curators Alain de Botton and John Armstrong wanted to provoke you into rethinking some crucial assumptions about what a museum visit is for. What is the purpose of art? They proposed it can be enjoyed for its powerfully therapeutic effect on evils that we all suffer (yes, you too). De Botton and Armstrong introduced a kind of philosophical graffiti. New texts appeared on giant Post-It notes throughout the museum. This unusual exhibition catalogue is published in the form of a giant yellow Post-It block, designed by Irma Boom. Bilingual English/Dutch language edition.
