Museumnacht 1986

ARCAM has been in existence for twenty years now, which is why it is organizing the celebratory exhibition ‘Bouwjaar ‘86’ (date of construction ’86). You will imagine yourself to be in the year of Amsterdam’s urban renewal, the completion of the Stopera, Maradona’s ‘Hand of God’, Flodder, Chernobyl and Theo & Thea. The exhibition can also be viewed during the Museum-n8.
The n8 at ARCAM was all about making the reality, dreams and traumas of the year 1986 palpable. Architect Cees Dam recounted his story of the realization of the Stopera. Martin Bril reads from his first novel, which he was writing at this time. During the dance workshop, Master-break talked about the background to the street culture, music and dance in the eighties. Join in and learn the moves of 20 years ago. Later in the evening, Jord den Hollander will present ‘The Big 1986 Quiz’. Test your knowledge! An eighties disco will round off the evening in style.
