Marlene Dumas – The Image as Burden
AMSTERDAM  •  Stedelijk Museum  •  6 September 2014 - 4 January 2015
 
Marlene Dumas – The Image as Burden is the first major solo exhibition of Dumas in the Netherlands in 20 years. It is the most comprehensive retrospective survey of her work in Europe to date and presents a compelling overview of her oeuvre from the late 1970s to the present. In addition to her most important and iconic works, the exhibition also presents lesser-known paintings and drawings, and a selection of her most recent paintings. The title of the exhibition is derived from the work The Image as Burden (1993), which refers to the conflict between the painterly gesture and the illusion of the painted image.

Bad Thoughts: Martijn and Jeannette Sanders Collection
AMSTERDAM  •  Stedelijk Museum  •  20 July 2014 - 11 January 2015
 
 
This summer, the Stedelijk Museum presents Bad Thoughts, a large-scale survey of the works assembled by Amsterdam collectors Martijn and Jeannette Sanders, one of the most important private collections in the Netherlands. The Sanders Collection contains a diverse array of several hundred paintings, sculptures, assemblages, photos, drawings, text-based artworks, films, videos, and installations by over 350 mostly European and American artists.

Martijn and Jeannette Sanders began collecting art in the 1970s. Unlike many private collections, the Sanders Collection is notable for featuring a significant group of “core artists” whose work is represented in depth, including Ger van Elk, Gilbert & George, Anselm Kiefer, Cindy Sherman, David Claerbout, Thomas Demand, and Anton Henning. The collection also holds a substantial body of conceptual art and “narrative art” of the 1970s, work by the Italian “trans-avant-garde” (Cucchi, Chia, Clemente), and German painting of the 1970s and 1980s (Lüpertz, Penck, and Baselitz). Recent acquisitions by the Sanders include works by Johan Grimonprez, Harun Farocki, and Hito Steyerl.

X ERGO Y
AMSTERDAM  •  Stedelijk Museum  •  30 November 2014 - 16 January 2015
 
 
X ERGO Y is based on belief systems: our pluralistic vision of the world. The work reflects on the worldviews through which we attempt to gain a grip of reality. X ERGO Y wanders through the history of humankind, presenting images and metaphors that trace the development of the civilized world.

In this work, American artist Tony Oursler (New York, 1957)  juxtaposes images from 3D scans and 3D computer models of artefacts with questions about what we do, or do not, believe. The objects in the video, all of which are handmade, are charged with very different culturally defined significance: a voodoo doll, a classical sculpture, a ritual Tibetan skull. Within their new projected framework, the images appear to be interchangeable, with which Oursler provokes us with the subjectivity of our belief systems. The artefacts in the work also call to mind objects in a museum – objects for which the meaning and value are researched by the museums themselves.
