As part of its multi –year Global Collaborations program, the Stedelijk Museum invited the Ghanaian artist Bernard Akoi-Jackson as an artist in residence. Akoi-Jackson has developed a project on the themes of culture and identity, in collaboration with the Stedelijk Museum’s `Blikopeners’. The Blikopeners are young people, aged 15 to 19, with a fresh view of art. They have diverse backgrounds, follow different studies and come from different Amsterdam neighbourhoods. Bram Verhoef, himself an up-and-coming art professional, is following the project and gives us a report.
