Metahaven, Eurasia (Questions on Happiness), still, 2018.

This fall the Stedelijk Museum presents the first major museum survey of Metahaven and the premiere of their new film installation Eurasia (Questions on Happiness).

The Stedelijk Museum will stage the first large-scale museum survey of Metahaven, bringing together the collective’s new moving image work with their renowned design practice. As Metahaven, Vinca Kruk and Daniel van der Velden have achieved international acclaim for their work spanning the genres of visual art, design, and film. This exhibition features the premiere of Eurasia (Questions on Happiness), a film installation jointly commissioned by the Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam, Institute of Contemporary Arts, London (ICA), and Sharjah Art Foundation.

Four galleries at the Stedelijk will be dedicated to the large-scale, immersive video installations that Metahaven has been creating since 2015 and that have never been shown before in the Netherlands. A fifth gallery centers around Metahaven’s music videos, textile and print works.
