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.
