The tower was the corner tower of the huge Java textile complex and was completely restored in 1993 and 1994 and converted into an exhibition space. Since 1995 there have been exhibitions of visual artists, who often create something especially for this place. Many people who pass by the Kunst-Torentje are on their way to work, the city or the station.
Guda Koster made the work “In the arms of Morpheus” for het Kunst-Torentje. On a stage covered with orange-blue cloth, a woman lies in a classic pose. Her upper body and face are hidden in a round shape of orange/blue textile. This woman does not care about the hectic pace of passers-by, she is quietly dreaming.
