The Groninger Museum is a museum of modern and contemporary art in Groningen, Netherlands.
Science Center NEMO in Amsterdam… from the outside, what is happening inside has to be experienced, pictures are not very helpful, although i have some here :) it’s a very cool place for both kids and adults.
inside the National Museum of Archaeology and History, Chisinau, Moldova
yesterday i’ve visited the Museum of Design in Zurich. now it is hosting an exhibition on plastic garbage - “Out to Sea? The Plastic Garbage Project”. it is a pretty informative (with lots of text) exhibition…i’ll post later more pictures of it.
above is the Plastic flotsam installation - a large amount of original plastic flotsam. This plastic garbage was collected during beach cleanup campaigns on Kahoolawe, an uninhabited Hawaiian island, on Sylt in the North Sea and Fehmarn in the Baltic.
there is some garbage there…but also there is a mirror creating an amplifying effect :) when i got there and took the pictures, haven’t realized it (not always wearing my glasses), but then walking through the hall already noticed the trick :)
the exhibition is open until the 28th of October and it’s free admission.

Heidi Weber Museum by Le Corbusier, in Zurich
love this architectural combination. the local history museum in Rapperswil…
Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art in Nice, France has several works of Yves Klein.
wiki says: "was a French artist considered an important figure in post-war European art. He is the leading member of the French artistic movement of Nouveau réalisme founded in 1960 by the art critic Pierre Restany. Klein was a pioneer in the development of Performance art, and is seen as an inspiration to and as a forerunner of Minimal art, as well as Pop art.”
these two paintings are part of the Anthropométries series… take a look at how the paintings were created…
other artist from the same museum: Niki de Saint Phalle
Nikolaj, Copenhagen Contemporary Art Center
Church? No, well, not anymore… it is Nikolaj, Copenhagen Contemporary Art Center, which “is located in the former Nikolaj Church at Nikolaj Plads in the centre of Copenhagen and functions as the city’s exhibition space for contemporary art.” (website)
During this period the Center is hosting the Space Invaders exhibition, it is an “interactive exhibition about computer games and contemporary art”. It was really dark inside, there were some projections on the walls (with games) and there were the sticks and instructions on how to play, then the usual very high ceilings of the churches, some elements of the former church were still there, like the organ and old chandeliers, but the walls were completely white… I liked this combination. I would love to see this happening in my country, Moldova.
There was a small room, all black, except the black&white screen…
How did it work? There were some buttons that moved the picture up, down, left, right… it was an almost 360 degrees image, horizontally and vertically… and… slow motion with blurring… a very trippy thing :) I was excited :)
Then on the upper floor there was this guy continuously running… with some really good music
and another game… everybody was “invited” to kill the guy.
Some more pictures HERE
from my point of view, a must visit while in Copenhagen!
