About the magazine

COLLECT : your reference in art, antiques and design

COLLECT is the magazine for the art lover and art collector. Each issue keeps you up to date on what is hot in the world of art, antiques and design. Every month we discuss top exhibitions that are on show nationally and internationally and take a look at what the galleries in The Netherlands have to offer. We follow the trends in the fields of art, antiques and design and report the latest developments at national and international auctions as well as at art fairs worldwide. Furthermore each issue comprises a very handy calendar that keeps you up to date on all auctions, fairs and exhibitions in The Netherlands and beyond.

History

In 1996 the first issue of Kunst & Antiek Journaal appeared, which was the precursor of COLLECT. This was an art journal  in black and white, published by the established Belgian art magazine Arts Antiques Auctions. In 2007 the magazines were thoroughly reformed, to match them both in design and content. That way Kunst & Antiek Journaal transformed into a beautiful color magazine. All these changes called for a new name: COLLECT. The name says it all: it is the magazine for the art collector and the active art lover. Just because the two magazines are very similar both in form and content - many articles are indeed interesting for both our Dutch and Belgian readers – they share their name. But of course each magazine focuses primarily on the art topics in its own country, to subsequently oversee the international landscape. That way, COLLECT Kunst Antiek Design (The Netherlands) and COLLECT Arts Antiques Auctions (Belgium) cover the entire art market in the Benelux and are the market leaders in their domain.
