I want to know more about The Viewphone

1. What is The Viewphone?

An old fashioned phone conversation. We’ll call, chat and vividly describe an artwork especially for you. A mini story and a huge boost for your imagination.

2. Is The Viewphone for me?

Does a spontaneous conversation at the bus stop or a café make you smile? Are you between 7 and 107 years old? Then you’ll really enjoy The Viewphone.

3. How can I give imagination as a present?

The Viewphone is a perfect gift, unlike any other gift. When you book a call, you enter the telephone number of the person to be called. Mail or print the ticket; and give it as a present. The ticket states the date and time of the conversation.

4. How long does a conversation take?

The Viewphone is slightly different for each colleague and each caller. It is a tailor-made conversation, every Viewphone conversation is unique. A conversation will take aproxemately 15 minutes. The aftereffect takes much longer, double the profit!

5. Why?

We started The Viewphone as a temporary replacement for the physical museum during the first lockdown. It turned out to be a bull’s eye. Callers feel energized after the conversation and look at their own environment with new eyes. After Artnet wrote a rave review, we received applications from France, Egypt, the United States, Pakistan and Italy. The reactions were so positive that we wanted to keep the telephone service. The Viewphone is now available for a short period once or twice a year.

6. What does it cost?

It costs more, but you pay 7.50 euros for a one-on-one conversation with a colleague from the LAM. Since everyone deserves this imagination boost, there are also sponsored cards. With those tickets you pay nothing.
