Largest-ever retrospective in the Netherlands of Jean Tinguely opens at the Stedelijk Museum

Swiss artist Jean Tinguely (1925?1991) is famous for his playful, boldly kinetic machines and explosive performances. Everything had to be different, everything had to move. Precisely twenty-five years after his death, on October 1st, the Stedelijk opens a Tinguely retrospective: the largest-ever exhibition of the artist to be mounted in a Dutch museum. With over a hundred machine sculptures, most of which are in working order, paired with films, photos, drawings, and archive materials, the presentation takes the public on a chronological and thematic journey of Tinguely?s artistic development and ideas, from his love of absurd play to his fascination for destruction and ephemerality.
