Remixing artworks at the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam

After having undergone lengthy renovation works, the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam will be reopened in April 2013. The museum has not only digitized its collection; with Rijksstudio, the museum enables visitors to tap into their own creativity by ‘remixing’ artworks by Rembrandt for example. With Rijksstudio you can put compose your own collection of artworks by theme, period or even per subject. The remixing aspect takes shape by creating an account on the Rijksmuseum’s Rijksstudio website, picking out an artwork and placing it onto a product. Following that, you can order your very own design in the webshop.
