Wonderkamers

2004-2006

Wonderkamer (26 episodes)
During the renovation of the Zeeuws Museum, we made a series of television programmes linking museum collections to the public. Sara van Reigersberg’s silver thimble was the starting point for a programme about wedding presents and beauty salons. Later programmes saw a mummy of an Egyptian child being run through a hospital scanner, while a baby dragon appeared in a programme about creepy animals, and a rich porcelain collection was linked to a person with a (harmless) porcelain addiction. The programme was linked to a weekly exhibition. Chamber of Wonders aired every Tuesday night, and the exhibition was subsequently open from Wednesday through Sunday.

Chamber of Wonders was a collaborative project with Omroep Zeeland (TV), Piet Dieleman (exhibition design), Hans Gremmen (catalogue) and the Zeeuws Museum team.
