Capital Crisis: Mokum meets Paris

16th of March - 25th of May, 2018

From Paris’ famed District 13 to Amsterdam Nieuw-West, Street Art Museum Amsterdam (SAMA) is bringing the power of global urban art to the Netherlands. Through interactive exhibition, they explore Amsterdam as a city with an identity crisis. What does it mean to be a republic in the contemporary times? 

Last year SAMA brought an alternative and raw take of Amsterdam to the 13 Art Fair Urban Contemporary in its inaugural year. In 2018, the elections year, it has returned with a collaborative art story to show Amsterdammers what Paris thinks about our city.  This has resulted in an exhibition which is part love letter, part thought provoker, Capital Crisis is an expression of pure emotion. 

The exhibition also shows what both  Paris and Amsterdam share: a story of shifting government policies at odds with changing demographics - secular and multi-cultural. 

The exhibition will include artworks of artists such as José Sabaté (Spain), Stinkfish (Mexico), Orticanoodles (Italy) and Bastardilla (Colombia).  Furthermore, different students of different disciplines will expose their work as well.
