Contribution from the Mondriaan Fund
For Princessehof acquisitions
The Mondriaan Fund has awarded €80,000 to the Princessehof National Museum of Ceramics for acquisitions. The Princessehof’s application for a contribution to the Collection Programme 2022-2023 was positively evaluated by the fund. The grant from the Mondriaan Fund will enable the Princessehof to make important acquisitions. The committee praised the museum’s plans to make ‘urgent and social issues more visible and tangible’. In the coming years, for example, the Princessehof will focus on sustainability in contemporary and modern ceramics. The first in a series of 12 exhibitions on this theme will open in the museum this autumn. A publication will also be produced.
In its announcement, the Mondriaan Fund stated: "The committee is positive about Princessehof’s collection policy and about the relationship between the acquisitions and the existing collection. It is curious about the choices the new curator Wendy Gers will make and the kinds of acquisitions that will result from these. Overall, the committee is convinced of the museum’s national profile and expertise."
