The Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam November 17, 2016 Today we visited The Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam for our blog. The Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam is located at the Museum Square next to the Van Gogh Museum and the Rijksmuseum. The museum was founded in 1874 and moved into this building in 1895. The building was designed by A.W. Weissman. After the construction of the new façade, the museum was nicknamed de Badkuip (The Bathtub).
After we have visited the Moderna Museet in Stockholm, we were curious what there is to explore in our own museum for modern and contemporary art. The museum’s mission is to enrich people’s life with modern and contemporary art and design!

Jean Tinguely – Machine Spectacle
Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam
Jean Tinguely Swiss by birth (1925-1991) was painter and sculptor. The exhibition is a chronological retrospective exhibitions of all his work. Tinguely is famous for his kinetic machines and sculptures. In the beginning of his career he remodeled paintings from f.i. Malevich with moving parts in it. This was his response to static and conventional art. He also developed a self painting machine, which could produce unique paintings. During his stay in the desert of the US, he developed self-destructive machines, which he explode. The fun part of the exhibition is that quite a number of the sculptures and machines are still be functioning.

After a coffee break in the restaurant, we continued our tour through the museum. The art which appealed to us the most, were the chairs by Rietveld, the Pop Art and the Blue painting called Cathedra by Barnett Newman but there is so much more to see.

Cathedra by Barnett Newman
We enter the building open minded. There are a number of temporary exhibitions. The one of Jean Tinguely – Machine Spectacle catches immediately our interest. With the audio guide in one hand and the camera in the other, we start exploring the exhibition on the top floor of the building.
