WORLD PREMIERE: TASCHEN exhibition at Museum aan het Vrijthof in Maastricht

‘A Passion For TASCHEN’
a collector's view

March 5 - August 27, 2017

Museum aan het Vrijthof in Maastricht presents an exhibition devoted to the TASCHEN  phenomenon, which will take place around the international TEFAF-fair in Maastricht.

The exhibition is oriented around the library of one of the world’s greatest TASCHEN collectors. Through his eyes we view the boldness, vision and variety of TASCHEN’s program across art, photography, sports,history, nature, society, and eroticism. Presenting Art and Collector’s editions, original photographs, bestsellers and objects from the TASCHEN archive the visitor experiences the thematic diversity and artistic quality of the publishing house, as well as their roster of leading creative collaborators, including Helmut Newton, Sebastião Salgado and Annie Leibovitz.
