Bad Thoughts: Martijn and Jeannette Sanders Collection
AMSTERDAM  •  Stedelijk Museum  •  Ongoing
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.
