Groningen, The Netherlands

Groninger Museum | Make a Minute

Personal clock
Every minute is unique, but the minutes of Make a Minute are truly special. Some 300 boys, girls, men and women depicted their favourite minute. That everyday moment that also is important: the minute you open your eyes in the morning or make your first cup of coffee. Or the minute you lock your front door in the evening. A total of 719 photos and video clips together make up a 12-hour clock, which can be admired offline and online in Groningen and environs. This summer it will be displayed at Noorderzon.

Make a Minute is inspired by the clocks of the Real Time series by Maarten Baas. The Hide & Seek, Maarten Baas exhibition will be running until 24 September in the Groninger Museum.
