Construction work commences. Practical solutions must be found for both the architectural interventions and the museum’s operation. Oxenaar uses an important exchange exhibition with Russia to expedite the new construction. The staff and collection move temporarily to Arnhem, where the outdoor exhibition Sonsbeek buiten de perken is also held. Meanwhile on the Veluwe a ‘new’ museum for modern art, but now also contemporary art, arises.
‘Nowhere will this triad be more evident than here. It was Mrs Kröller-Müller’s point of departure, it was also the point of departure for the design of the new building by architect Quist.’
