In Freedom Hans den Hartog Jager brings together the most important works of art produced in the Netherlands over the past fifty years. The selection presented in this book is a subjective one, and that’s precisely the point: in these very times, when history is constantly being rewritten, Den Hartog Jager revives the discussion on the milestones in Dutch art. Which artists represent our day and age? And what does this say about how we look at the world?
Aside from being a major survey, Freedom is also a celebration of the power of art: a book that prompts us to reflect on the history of Dutch art and juxtaposes many beautiful, inspiring and provocative works of art with each other. A new history of Dutch art, for a new age.
