Anton Herbert, founder of the Herbert Foundation died at 83

 

Last week the collector,  founder and inspirator of the Herbert Foundation Anton Herbert (5 nov. 1938 – 7 dec. 2021) passed away in Gent, Belgium. Since the end of the sixties, together with his wife Annick, he collected contemporary art, with a focus on Conceptual Art, arte povera en Minimalism. For the Herbert couple the artist is more important than his artwork, and while collecting art, they always include the documentation around each artwork and the artist.

Museum Voorlinden acquires a new work by Jan Henderikse (1937), Checkout (2018)⁠

Jan Henderikse (1937) was the most radical artist of the Dutch Zero movement, an international collective of artists that exhibited under that name between 1958 and 1966. The Zero-artists worked with alternative means such as movement, reflection, repetition and seriality of forms, and had a preference for modern materials. Although Jan began his career as a painter, he soon switched to making installations and assemblages of everyday objects: “Consumer goods, kitsch and trash, I am interested in everything that moves people”. ⁠
