Masterplan / Land Art Flevoland
During the building of the Flevoland polder, the engineers and planners decided to mark the occasion through the realisation of a number of large-scale art works, situated on several locations. They opted for an art form that spoke to their imagination: Land Art. An art form popular in the United States in the seventies and introduced in the Netherlands through exhibitions such as Op Losse Schroeven (1969) in the Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam and Sonsbeek Buiten de Perken (1971) in Arnhem.

The result is a collection of nine Land Art works by world-famous artists such as Robert Morris, Richard Serra and Daniel Libeskind.

Now, 40 years after the first works were realised, we are working on the execution of the Masterplan Land Art Flevoland, in which we give an upgrade to some and impulse to all of the Land Art works in the collection. Next to managing the restoration of some of these works, we are also organise interviews with all of the artists of the collection. The work largely concerns land art as heritage and its preservation, but also involves activating the works by, for example, improving seating areas next to the works or publishing a magazine about the collection
