Stedelijk @ Trouw/De Verdieping

During the ongoing improvement and expansion of its facilities, the Stedelijk museum is closed until the second half of 2012. However, the temporarily disembodied museum remains dynamic and is still actively engaged in various activities by organising an extensive programme called the Temporary Stedelijk 3: Stedelijk @.

In collaboration with various cultural institutions in Amsterdam and featuring world-renowned artists and speakers, the museum proudly presents performances, film screenings, lectures, discussions, public interviews, interactive activities and other events throughout the city.

One of the most remarkable projects included in Temporary Stedelijk 3: Stedelijk @ is the creative collaboration between Stedelijk Museum and Trouw/De Verdieping. In springtime 2012, the museum and the cultural club join forces to host four major events that aim to create new ways of looking at contemporary art.

When a museum of contemporary art and a cultural club combine resources in a surprising collaboration, you can expect to be inspired by a broad range of events, during which art can be presented and experienced in ways you might never have experienced before.
