With the help of 100 artworks, this book guides you through the collection of the Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam. Learn more about Kazimir Malevich's groundbreaking abstract paintings, the ingeniously knotted chair by Marcel Wanders, nearly kitschy art by Jeff Koons, and Rineke Dijkstra's intense portraits.
Ten introductory texts impart everything you need to know in 1,000 words about modern art, photography, and design. For instance, why waste and junk can also be art. Or why skillfully appropriated art is better than badly conceived. Or why an unsuspecting visitor may suddenly find themselves part of a work of art. Included with the guide is a sheet of stickers featuring 100 works from the collection. With this guide, every curious visitor can be well prepared for their next encounter with modern art.
