Thinking in Narratives: Interview with Bart van der Heide about TROMARAMA and a Global Perspective at the Stedelijk MuseumChristel Vesters
From 12 June through 6 September, the Stedelijk Museum is presenting the first European solo exhibition by the Indonesian artists collective, TROMARAMA. The exhibition is part of the Stedelijk Museum’s Global Collaborations project. With this three-year programme, the museum hopes to form a well-informed and nuanced perspective of developments in contemporary art from a worldwide approach. Global Collaborations Online editor Christel Vesters spoke with the Stedelijk’s new Chief Curator, Bart van der Heide, about Tromarama’s work, its significance for contemporary art and the Stedelijk Museum in particular, and the Stedelijk’s vision of global art within its own collection and programming policies.
