Freedom of Movement: Municipal Art Acquisitions 2018 brings together artists exploring notions of political agency within the field of time-based media. As neo-nationalist and populist political movements gain traction in the West, the phrase “freedom of movement” has become central in national conversations on civic engagement and responsibility. How much freedom do we have, and how much do we allow others?

Freedom of Movement features the work of 20 artists; Isabelle Andriessen, Yael Bartana, Verena Blok, Melanie Bonajo, Kate Cooper, Danielle Dean, Deniz Eroglu, Juan Arturo García González, Sara Sejin Chang (Sara van der Heide), JODI, Jort van der Laan, Basir Mahmood, Polina Medvedeva, Rory Pilgrim, Falke Pisano, Michele Rizzo, Rafaël Rozendaal, Joy Mariama Smith, Jonas Staal and Remco Torenbosch.

The Municipal Art Acquisitions is a series of biannual exhibitions organized with the financial support of the Municipality of Amsterdam. During the exhibition, the Stedelijk will announce which pieces it has chosen to acquire for its internationally renowned collection.
