Art and social enterprise
The gallery manages a collection of over 2,000 pieces with ongoing acquisitions of new artwork and artists. As a social enterprise, Beeldend Gesproken represents artists who find it difficult to be a part of the ‘regular’ art scene, often because of a psychiatric background. They liken themselves to Theo, brother, friend and agent to Vincent van Gogh.
Beeldend Gesproken is at the forefront of the sharing economy, having participated in the ART | SHARE concept since 1992. This sharing system, where participants receive a new artwork every six months, provides an alternative for those who aren’t yet ready to purchase art of their own or who simply like a bit of variety. Whether it’s for purchase or rental, Beeldend Gesproken encourages collaborations and offers professional consultation to individuals and companies.
