Gerbrand Korevaar is passionate about art and history, and turned his passion into his profession, working as a curator, researcher and writer. He has been the curator of the Hash Marihuana & Hemp Museums in Amsterdam and Barcelona for seven years. Taking advantage of his presence at Spannabis, we interviewed this Dutch art historian.
At Spannabis Madrid 2017 – the Spanish cannabis fair held last October – the Hash Marihuana & Hemp Museum hosted its first pop-up exhibition. Under the name of “The Weed of Wonder” and in a stand which occupied 100 square metres, the thousands of visitors to the fair were able to enjoy a taste of the museum collection.
The Hash Marihuana & Hemp Museum boasts a unique collection of more than 12,000 objects related to cannabis, and shows the history and current uses of the plant. This story is told and illustrated in two venues – Amsterdam and Barcelona.
