One year in the multi­fac­eted life of museum director Sjarel Ex actu­ally presents two portraits: one of the dedi­cated Boij­mans van Beuningen director and one of the Rotterdam museum itself. Ex is the link between past and present and believes every period has its own eyes. In meet­ings with artists, collec­tors, patrons, donors, colleagues and visi­tors, the eloquent museum director demon­strates his func­tion requires not only art-histor­ical knowl­edge, passion and empathy, but also a lot of tact and diplo­matic talent.
