For over forty years, Pieter and Marieke Sanders avidly collected the work of relatively young, as well as more renowned artists from the Netherlands and overseas. Their collection includes paintings, works on paper, sculptures, installations, photography, videos, and artists’ books. The emphasis lies on innovative and conceptual work. In recent years, they have been following in particular new developments in the field of new media, video art and post-internet art.
On the occasion of their gift to the Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam the book OBJECT ONDER/OBJECT BELOW: Sanders Collection was published.
