Kröller-Müller Collection @ SAM
This project entails the scanning of several Dutch books and articles into a word document and their subsequent translation via a translation machine and their editing by myself, a native Dutch speaker. The texts will be used for teaching purposes in my two spring-term classes on the famous Kröller-Müller collection from Otterlo, the Netherlands, which will come to the Seattle Art Museum during the term. Ms. Kröller-Müller and her advisers wrote several treatises on their collection policies, as well as on their vision of art and its function in society, topics central to the course. She went on to collect what is now the second largest Van Gogh collection in the world, twelve works of which will come to Seattle. I would like to begin the scanning process during spring break and perhaps continue doing more translations during the course of the spring quarter when students identify articles they need to have translated.
