The number of artists that improve the streetview are growing by the day. The most wellknown one is Banksy.

This artform is mostly short term, since it’s made in the streets. The museum wants to frame the modern timeperiod and it’s artforms. Giving streetart a location to be collected and on display for a larger audience.

The Lasloods is a Monument and will be renovated first. With the size of over 7000 m2, it will be twice as large as the Turbinehal of Tate Modern in London. All art works are especially made for the museum, at a secret location. The smallest painting will be larger then the ‘Nightwach’ paining of Rembrandt.
