Kamarado in images

From September 12 till November 8, the Stedelijk Museum Bureau Amsterdam presented the exhibition Kamarado, which was the first result of collaboration between Amsterdam and the Clark House Initiative in Bombay. Kamarado brought together a group of artists from across the world who together explored the idea of the comrade, a term which originally refers to ‘the one who shares the same room’. Kamarado was the fourth and final collaborative exhibition project realised under the umbrella of the three yearlong Global Collaborations program of the Stedelijk Museum. Below a visual impression of the images.
