In 1896, members of Vindicat organised one of the largest Van Gogh exhibitions ever held, at the Groninger Museum. In November 2024, the museum will tell the story about that exhibition.
The students aimed to shake up the dormant art scene in Groningen. They organised six exhibitions, with the most remarkable being the one featuring Van Gogh. The group managed to bring together 128 of his works. There were also works on display by other innovators in the art world – something the museum intends to do again next year.
Bringing together 128 Van Goghs once more might not be achievable, according to guest curator Mariëtta Jansen. ‘If we have ten or fifteen, I will already be very happy’, she said to RTV Noord.
