Stedelijk Museum – Jana Euler: High in Amsterdam, The Sky Of Amsterdam: At the exhibition High in Amsterdam, The Sky of Amsterdam, we can see ‘old’ work by the German artist Jana Euler, and work she has made specifically for Stedelijk Museum. Paintings, images and texts that can’t be described as one style, they are abstract and figurative. She knows how to deform and twist classical themes from art history, after which she confirms them with a dull and dry humor again. Jana challenges the perception and definition of reality and images.
Until October 15 2017
