Make a confession with the Pope of the Church of Modern Art, (Un)Believing Thomas, and share your emotions during the mood-tours and your deepest secrets in the workshop Confessions on Paper or RE: Paint. You'll be able to dance your sins off to the energetic indie-electro music by the CHEATERS. Or to the nineties hit you just requested in the silent disco of the Guilty Pleasure Cafe. No worries, everything remains between us. We want to hear all your stories. And we don't judge.

(Un)Believing Thomas

Unbelieving Thomas (Thomas de Bres, actor) is the Art Pope of our Museum Night. HE is everywhere. With his sharp tongue and his holy tranquility he challenges your tastes and believes.

Mood tours by Blikopeners

Stedelijk Blikopeners and employees will take you on Mood Tours through the exhibitions. What are their bad thoughts? What are yours? As a red thread through the tours run themes such as shame, jealousy and hidden desires.

Tours start every thirty minutes, register at the info desk, entrance Paulus Potterstraat

Workshop Confessions on Paper

Time to confess! Join the confession table and cut, paste and write your own confession collage. No matter how bad or naughty, you can share your deepest secrets in this workshop. All anonymously ofcourse. That’s a relief, isn’t it? The results of your hard work will be on view on the Stedelijk Tumblr after the night ends.

Location: Entrance hall

RE: Paint (workshop by Blikopeners)

The Blikopeners – our young ambassadors – will take you into a world of angels and demons! Experience the super natural powers of the Stedelijks white walls. Descend to the Underworld and turn your sins and secrets into art!

Location: Entrance hall and Studio A + B


The indie electro band the CHEATERS will play three sets during Museum Night, including their new song especially written for the Night: Bad Thoughts. They even made a new video together with fashion designer Alexandra Frida. Keep an eye on our social media for an online preview! 

Guilty pleasures cafe with silent disco

Especially for Museum Night the Zadelhoff Cafe will be transformed into the temple of guilty pleasures! Relax in a comfy beanbag and sip a dirty cocktail. Afterwards, you can request your Guilty Pleasure song  in the Silent Disco.

Location: Zadelhoff Cafe

Cocktails: € 5,-

N8 bite

Restaurant Stedelijk offers a tasteful N8-bite from 10.00 pm for €7,50. On the menu are hot chicks, indecent shrimps and sexy veggies. DJ Meneer Minnee will play some tunes to reflect the sins of the evening in music.
