Axel Rüger, Van Gogh Museum (NL)

The Van Gogh Museum, fully engaged in its cultural entrepreneurship, has developed a new initiative: MEET VINCENT VAN GOGH, a travelling, multi-disciplinary experience, introducing visitors to the world of Vincent van Gogh (1853-1890) in an innovative and immersive manner. This all-encompassing Van Gogh experience for the whole family will present the unique official story about Van Gogh’s short and turbulent life. This Experience created by the museum, combines the artist’s life, work and quest. Guided by facsimiles, audio-visual and digital applications, quotations from letters, life-like reproductions and scenes from his artworks, life and environment, visitors virtually travel through the artist’s life, and thus experience for themselves the story of the person behind the paintings. The first Meet Vincent van Gogh experience will be launched by the museum in China in May 2016
