Not getting the job because you are a woman? “Totally unacceptable,” says Irine Gaasbeek, Country Managing Director for Accenture Netherlands. “That would really be an injustice.” Her employees agree with her and won’t set up project teams that predominantly consist of men. “They know I won’t buy it if they say they can’t find capable women to include in their team. Just look further and you’ll find them.”

In the coming months, the Cobra Museum of Modern Art in Amstelveen will be exhibiting forty masterpieces from the surrealism collection of the Boijmans Van Beuningen museum in Rotterdam, before going on a world tour.

The museum lends its works of art to museums in the Netherlands and abroad, because the museum is being rebuilt. The Cobra Museum benefits from this because the surrealism collection of the Boijmans belongs to the world top.

The exhibition consists of ‘the currants from the surrealist porridge.’ Key works by Salvador Dali, René Margritte, Andre Breton, Man Ray, Eileen Agar and Max Ernst will be on display. On the ground floor of the museum is an exhibition about the similarities and differences between Surrelism and the Cobra movement.

The exhibition ‘This is Surrealism! The Boymans Masterpieces’ can be seen from 1 June to 27 September, seven days a week. There is an audio tour and there are continuous guides in the museum, to give an explanation.

Walking routes are indicated via a sophisticated dot pattern for safety. Tickets must be purchased online in advance via the museum’s website and there is a walk-in time (timeslot).

Not only there are the sky-high office complexes built at Zuidas, but there is a concern for the bees as well. So, Zuidas has built up to 19 Bee Hotels in the area. It is an award-winning project to green the city. The solitary bee has a crucial role, and oak wood is the best material, is what the designers of these hotels can tell us.
