As a member of the cultural network, Benedict Goes was invited to attend the recordings of the TV program ‘Historisch Bewijs’ (Historical Evidence) in the auditorium of the Rijksmuseum. It examines in various ways whether historical objects from museums are as real as is always claimed. Critical researchers, for example, are looking at the famous Hugo de Groot bookcase, of which there are three. Which is the real one? And the phalanges of the De Wit brothers, the silver of Piet Hein's treasure fleet. Is it all real? During this recording, the outcome will be announced, but since the broadcasts are early next year, we should not reveal anything yet! As a matter of fact, an inspiring working method to look at our own museum objects in the same way.
