Exhibition: Manzoni in Holland

February 22, 2019

 
For the first time in this country in 50 years the Stedelijk Museum Schiedam presents an extensive retrospective of his work under the title Manzoni in Holland Not only does the exhibition – from 16 February to 2 June 2019 – examine his artistic development, but Manzoni’s collaboration with artists in the Netherlands and other countries also receives ample treatment. An exceptional feature is that visitors are welcome to stand on Manzoni’s magic pedestal: for a brief moment you are the work of art. 
 
This exhibition is the first to throw light on the cooperation between Manzoni and the Rotterdam-based artists’ group Zero, not to be confused with the German Zero group. It particularly concerns the relationship between Manzoni and Hans Sonnenberg, who worked in the harbour as a ship broker and later as a gallery owner. He also was a collector. In those years he acted as manager of the Dutch Zero group. It is the first time that the correspondence of Sonnenberg and Manzoni is examined, and we extend our gratitude to the Museum Boijmans van Beuningen, which administers the correspondence.
