Give Us The Museum Video


Under the moniker ‘Give us the Museum’, a group of artists and creatives who recently came to the Netherlands took over the Stedelijk Museum in Amsterdam for a month in May 2018, joined by the novelist Arnon Grunberg and facilitated by Makers Unite, to explore what the museum means to them. 

The title of this project arose from several conversations between Grunberg and the newcomers. When he asked about the meaning of a museum to artists who had just arrived in Amsterdam, the answer was clear: Give us the museum and we will show you.

What can we learn from newcomers in Europe? Not just about them, but also about ourselves, our identities and our cultures?

What are their thoughts on European culture and identity?
