Art in corona times 22. Nam June Paik, The Future is Now; Stedelijk Museum, Amsterdam

I visited the Stedelijk Museum in Amsterdam to write a review about the retrospective exhibition of works by Nam June Paik (1932-2006) for Villa La Repubblica. Click here to read the review in VLR (in Dutch).

This great retrospective of one of the most fascinating artists of the last quarter of the last century happened to be opened just before Covid-19 restrictions were implemented. Now, after reopening, the exhibition was obviously not prepared for the restrictions we still have. In the mean time the museum and its visitors are trying to make the best of it.

As i have written quite extensively in VLR about the exhibition, i just leave you here with some impressions.

The show is in its last week, so you have to hurry if you don’t want to miss it. And do bear in mind that you have to make an online reservation!

  1. Wat een goed stuk Bertus.. Een waardevolle aanvulling voor mensen die de tentoonstelling bezochten, zoals ik vandaag.
