Van wie is het (platte)land?

“How do we deal with land when it’s in short supply? Do we build, or farm, or return the land to nature? And what effect do wind turbines or solar farms have on the landscape? All these dilemmas first appear in the countryside. But the country is also where solutions can be found and the future secured. What do we want that future to look like? And how do we get there without losing each other in the process? Who does the countryside belong to?

These developments and questions form the impetus for Rijksmuseum Twenthe to look to rural areas. From the independent position of the arts, we hope to contribute to the conversation on these pressing issues. The public project Who does the countryside belong to? opens the dialogue with three exhibitions, an extensive program of activities, and the opportunity for artistic field study.”
