Director Sonia Herman Dolz with painstaking research, hands on acuity, blesses viewers with an extravagant, monumental tour de force; it is a love story of achievement, devotion, bordering on adulation, of the “world’s first publicly accessible art storage facility”; a glimmering, gorgeous space where the impossible, inconceivable is majestically realized. It is a wonder masterfully created by visionary architect, Winy Maas; eliminating white walls, allowing viewers to select from a collection of over 150,000 objects; smothering one in a landscape of light and reflection, glossy, glassy mirrors embrace visitors allowing their reflections to legitimize the space. 

Located next to Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen in Rotterdam’s Museumpark; Dolz brilliantly balances the architectural wizardry of today with archival (black and white) footage of construction of the museum a hundred years ago. Her sensitivity to the “then and now” is palpable, but presciently, poignantly her goal is the future; focusing on preservation for an unborn, unscripted society a millennium ahead; their quest, inquisitiveness, fascination with their artistic predecessors is addressed and answered eloquently in this masterpiece.
