Farewell with a view to the future

Part of: Hammacher

The sculpture garden has only just opened and Hammacher is already pushing for expansion. He wants a pavilion by the architect Gerrit Rietveld and also asks him to design park benches. In his last years as director he still contributes to international exhibitions, and in the face of criticism he acquires the Large split drum from Oceania and a metal relief by the artist Zoltán Kemény.
