      The Groninger Museum presented a large-scale overview of the developments in art and history in Cuba from 1868 to the present day. The exhibition gave a survey of the multicultural society of Cuba, and had been organized by the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts. Cuba is known world-wide for its music and literature, and simply for being an exceptional country. The many paintings, photos, videos, graphic designs and installations in the exhibition provided a picture of Cuba in a political and historical context.

        The Groninger Museum is build in the water of the Verbindings Canal in Groningen, a town in the northern Netherlands. The new Groninger Museum is not merely a casing for art, it is a work of art in itself. The ultimate design by the Italian Alessandro Mendini and the three guest architects Philippe Starck, Michele de Lucchi, and Coop Himmelb[l]au was completed in 1994. The museum shows modern and contemporary art, fashion and design, as well as historic arts. After the renovation in de summer of 2010 the Groninger Museum has a new Info Center, Museumrestaurant and Lounge. www.groningermuseum.nl. Video made by Sije Kingma

              Music Tour Summer hit has taken on a new meaning in the Groninger Museum. What would a painting actually sound like? We asked a number of bands and singer-songwriters from the Netherlands and abroad. The musicians took their inspiration from a work of art featured in the exhibition entitled Now in the Groninger Museum. 100 Years of Collecting: 1894-1994. They translated whatever the painting meant to them into music. The result is a soundtrack you can listen to in an audio tour while seeing the art in the exhibition. You can listen to a taste of some of the songs here in advance. Klaas Reitsma (montage) en Sije Kingma (regie en camera).
