About the exhibition
As a rule, art is displayed within the safe white walls of museums and galleries. Only visible to a small audience who are already looking for cultural activities themselves. Bergarde (exhibition space, collection and estate) breaks through this wall and literally comes out. Surrounding country estate Het Buitenland becomes the exhibition space, where art and nature come together. Playground is an ambitious outdoor project initiated by Bergarde. From 1 June to 16 November 2019, the public estate will be the backdrop for a surprising exhibition in the midst of nature. An outdoor exhibition with the overarching theme: playground. Public and freely accessible to a wide audience.

About estate Het Buitenland
Bergarde Galleries is located at Landgoed Het Buitenland. The polder was originally used for intensive agriculture, but with the help of experts, the area has developed in recent years into a green polder where nature can regain control. Various plant species, birds and insects have already returned to the polder.
