Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam announces public program for autumn 2013

Since the historic reopening of the Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam in September 2012, the Public Program has functioned as an important point of convergence. Encompassing a great number of performance, film, discursive, music, and dance programs, the Public Program connects questions and issues in the international discourse about contemporary art and design with local interests and communities. International artists, designers, curators, critics, and scholars from various generations and backgrounds are invited to present their work as part of the Public Program in ambitious and thought-provoking programs.
