Food designer Annelies Hermsen presents a selection of works from the Van Abbemuseum's collection in the display case of the Van der Valk Hotel Eindhoven. With works by Marcel Broodthaers, Julia Lohmann and Maryam Jafri. They question the relationship between people and the meat industry.

The work in the display case
Annelies Hermsen focuses on innovative, green and circular food concepts and has worked with the Van Abbemuseum before. The questions Hermsen poses in her work are not only about the difference between animal food and plant-based food, but mostly about the relationship between people and nature, city and the rural area. Annelies selected three works for this presentation: Les animeaux de la ferme (1974) by Marcel Broodthaers, “Belinda” Cow-Bench (2005) by Julia Lohmann and Generic Corner (2015) by Maryam Jafri. As in her own work, these works refer to the role of the cow in the food industry. This display case, which was designed by Piet Hein Eek, is each time curated by a guest curator with works from the collection of the Van Abbemuseum.

More about Annelies Hermsen
Food designer Annelies Hermsen keeps a close eye on developments within the food industry. She develops products, menus for events and provides advice for companies, gastronomy and catering. She is interested in the shift from meat and fish to plant-based food that has taken place in recent years. The shift that is taking place here is something that Hermsen sees more often in contrasts in the food industry: exuberant and social versus functional and healthy.

The display case can be visited free of charge at Van der Valk Hotel Eindhoven.
