Amsterdam Museum

Amsterdam Museum

The Amsterdam Museum, founded in 1926, is an innovative city museum which invites inhabitants and visitors of Amsterdam to become co-owners of our city – a metropolis in miniature. We do this not only by celebrating the city but also by addressing its less attractive aspects and investigating what can be improved.

Perception & Representation: Reframing “Modernity”

Brooklyn Bridge Park – Emily Warren Roebling Plaza
 coming soon

A dialogue between two independent, conceptually entwined projects, by a group of Dutch photographers and by American artist Kennedi Carter.

The Dutch photographers’ work features prominent models of color, in the style of Rembrandt and his contemporaries, to counter the erasure of non-white people throughout Dutch history. Similarly, Carter’s work brings focus to Blackness, belonging, wealth and power, through the visual style of European royalty combined with contemporary Black aesthetics.
