Arno van Roosmalen:
Where is the Exhibition

Over een nieuwe, onderzoekende programma-opzet van Stroom Den Haag

Arno van Roosmalen licht zijn ideeën toe voor het nieuwe programmaformat van Stroom, "Where's the exhibition?". Doorgaans is een reeks tentoonstellingen de ruggengraat van het programma van een presentatie-instelling. Stroom zet de komende jaren in op 6 programmalijnen die voor een groot deel onderzoekend van aard zijn en waarmee de organisatie zich heroriënteert op de relatie met de omgeving, met kunstenaars en haar positie herijkt. De nieuwe ruggengraat wordt gevormd door een langdurige, ‘niet doelgerichte’ en intieme relatie met een kleine selectie kunstenaars met een maatschappelijk geëngageerde praktijk. Volgens Van Roosmalen zijn hedendaagse kunstorganisaties onvoldoende toegerust om dit soort praktijken effectief te bemiddelen. Stroom roept de tentoonstellingsmachine een halt toe en werkt toe naar een organisatie die inspanningen verricht om sterke verbindingen met maatschappelijke partijen tot stand te brengen.
