“A collective of artists from Groningen”

In 1918, several young artists take the initative to found the art collective known as De Ploeg (meaning both “the Plough” and “the Group”). This name was carefully selected: art in Groningen was like undeveloped land and needed to be ploughed thoroughly before something new could grow. By joining forces and organizing shared expositions and other activities, Groningen could be prepared for modern art.
