small art for small people

j/k :)
Of course, it should read bad art for bad people. The restless folks, known as the happy famous artists, are coming to the Museum Van Nagsael:
The Museum, open day and night, has no invitations, no openings and no cashflow. It is an easy organisation, one that is free from tedious administrative chores. It is, therefore, close to the basics of art: in the pleasure of the making, the exhibiting and the viewing. Van Nagsael is both intimate in the function of an exhibtion room and public in its function as a work of art in public space. For the directors these facts are more important than the scale, however the scale has some signifignance, being 1:15. For them what is most important, is the Museum's total integration in the surrounding. Making in the small vitrine an even smaller space actually enlarged the terrain of the Museum. For the artists that are invited to exhibit, what seems most important is the approach of Van Nagsael not so much as a miniature exhibition space, but more as an artwork. Half of the artwork that is to be completed every month anew. For the visitor to Van Nagsael, by chance or intention, on route through the city, the Museum is viewed alone and privately.

One should know that on even months Silvia B., widely blogged for her strange dolls, is the director of the museum Van Nagsael.
