With the help of 100 artworks, this book guides you through the collection of the Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam. Learn more about Kazimir Malevich’s groundbreaking abstract paintings, the ingeniously knotted chair by Marcel Wanders, nearly kitschy art by Jeff Koons, and Rineke Dijkstra’s intense portraits.
Ten introductory texts impart everything you need to know in 1,000 words about modern art, photography, and design. For instance, why waste and junk can also be art. Or why something skillfully appropriated in art is better than badly conceived. Or why these days an unsuspecting visitor can suddenly join in a work of art.
We lined up the 100 featured works from the collection on the included sheets of stickers. Pick your favorites and give the cover your own twist! With this guide, every curious visitor can be well prepared for their next encounter with modern art.
Avaliable at the museumshop and online.
