MOTI tells the story of visual culture by an appealing national and international collection with masterpieces, full of connections and references to the past and the future. From photography to spatial design. There is also a great amount of recent work that is taken into our collection, including interactive design, 3D objects, data visualisations, artistic graphic software, clothing and other work that is of any importance to the area of expertise.

The mission of the museum is to gather, manage and maintain information and knowledge about the history of the graphic design profession. The last hundred years are brought to life for everybody in an interactive exhibition which includes work by Piet Zwart, Wim Crouwel, Anthon Beeke and Erik Kessels. The museum is working on a digital archive with the Dutch Design Database, but students and researchers can visit physically at the Museum Lab.

The Museum Lab is the knowledge heart of the MOTI, Museum of the Image and is situated above the museum shop. The museum lab is a dynamic place for research into and knowledge about the broad field of image culture. The visitor has free entry to the multimedia library, where contemporary and historical material can be consulted in the research files.
