In cooperation with Afterall Books, the Stedelijk Museum is organising the official Amsterdam book launch to celebrate the publication of Exhibiting the New Art: ‘Op Losse Schroeven’ and ‘When Attitudes Become Form’ 1969.

The history of exhibitions is a much debated issue in contemporary art. For how should and is such a history constructed? Is it different from the history of art already known to us? How do these exhibition histories, if they are manifold indeed, relate to curatorial discourses? In order to provide a theoretical framework for the questions that inform the publication that is launched at this event, several international speakers will these matters through an extensive interview and discussion seminar. After an introduction by Sophie Berrebi (University of Amsterdam, Amsterdam), a public interview between Teresa Gleadowe (Afterall Books, London) and Seth Siegelaub (curator, Amsterdam) will take place about key issues in 1960s and 1970s exhibition practice. The afternoon is concluded with a round table with Deborah Cherry (University of Amsterdam, Amsterdam), Charles Esche (Van Abbe Museum, Eindhoven), Teresa Gleadowe, Ann Goldstein (Stedelijk Museum, Amsterdam), Christian Rattemeyer (Museum of Modern Art, New York) and Seth Siegelaub, moderated by Sophie Berrebi.
