In this section we let a selection of art lovers – from occasional buyers to art professionals – talk about their perception of art and preferences: where do they want to see art? Where do they purchase art, and above all: from which artists do they buy? We kick off with author Hugo Borst. Hugo is a columnist for the Algemeen Dagblad newspaper, co-presents the radio 1 sports program Langs de Lijn every Sunday and wrote two books about his mother who died in 2018, of which Ma is best known.

Who are your favorite artists on Gallery Viewer, and why?
Then I choose Saminte Ekeland. She comments on the history and the present with plastic, textile and sewing thread. She has an eye for loners who fight systems. Mohammed Ali passes by and Angela Davis. Beautiful work, both in thinking and in execution.
