Temporary Stedelijk (7) is the last exhibition on this website. Since February 2012 we, Kalle Mattsson and Amber van den Eeden, have organized four online exhibitions on temporarystedelijk.com and temporarystedelijk.nl. We bought these domain names when we found out the Stedelijk Museum had neglected to do so.

In the first three exhibitions ‘Temporary Stedelijk (4), (5) and (6)’ the works of young, well known and less well known artists from Amsterdam were shown. Artists who are connected to the city of Amsterdam.

In this last virtual exhibition we have chosen to show net art: an art form which takes place within the context of the computer. We thought this was a fitting way to end our online initiative. Net art is a field in which the Netherlands has played a significant role on an international level since the beginning of the 90's. Yet, within the Netherlands it keeps escaping the attention of most curators, museums and therefore the audience. 

We have put together a collection of works by the very early pioneers and the young generations of net artists of today. It gives an overview of what has happened in the field of net art over the last 17 years.

Temporary Stedelijk (7) shows works by Jodi, Constant Dullaart, Peter Luining, Jan Robert Leegte, Mouchette, Moniker, Jonas Lund, Rafaël Rozendaal and Jonathan Sachse Mikkelsen. The contributions in text are written by Josephine Bosma, Annet Dekker, Petra Heck and Sandra Fauconnier.

Thank you for visiting,
