Maarten Baas

Real Time XL The Artist


Maarten Baas’ Real Time series now encompasses his Grandfather Clocks, Film Clocks, Confetti Clocks, and Sweeper’s Clock, notable editions of which include the Rijksmuseum’s Grandfather Clock and the Schiphol Clock commissioned for Amsterdam’s international airport.

This edition, Real Time XL The Artist, was exhibited in the show DYSFUNCTIONAL at the 2019 Venice Biennale. It features a life size video performance of the artist working as if from inside the clock itself, to continually draw and redraw the correct time onto the inside of the clock face.

The concept reinforces the notion of time as a human invention.

Maarten Baas


Maarten Baas (born 19 February 1978) is a Dutch designer.
From 1979, Baas grew up in Burgh-Haamstede and Hemmen located in the southwest and central region of the Netherlands. After graduating from high school, he began studying at the Design Academy Eindhoven in 1996. Baas is considered to be one of the most influential Dutch designers of the beginning of the 21st century. He is often described as an “author designer,” of which his works lie on the boundaries between art and design. His work is known as rebellious, playful, intellectual, theatrical and artistic. He has gained an autonomous position in the design field, and his work varies from conceptual designs, limited editions, production design, installations, public space, architecture, interior design, theater design and performances.
