Past Meets Future: Re-opening the Stedelijk Museum in Amsterdam – A public lecture by Margriet Schavemaker

The recent re-opening of the Stedelijk Museum in Amsterdam brings a legendary player back to the international museum arena. In this lecture Margriet Schavemaker will present the exciting additional wing of the museum, designed by Benthem Crouwel architects, as well as the current collection, presentations and exhibitions. Working from the probing question 'Is the Stedelijk Museum the museum of the future?', Schavemaker will discuss the institutional vision of the museum and its embrace of extensive public programming and dedication to pioneering new media applications.

The lecture will be held in English.
All are welcome!
