the Selection Committee.


1. Position of the Museum
In 2003, the "Committee Future Stedelijk Museum" (which was invited
to present its vision for the Stedelijk Museum by the municipal
authorities of the City of Amsterdam) wrote, "The collection of the
Stedelijk Museum is generally considered to be a top collection with
an international reputation". The Stedelijk collection consists of
important works of modern art and design. The artistic staff has the
ambition to achieve a more prominent position for the museum locally,
nationally and internationally through the development of a
challenging and exciting exhibition programme, the production of
high-quality publications and the establishment of an active outreach
toward the viewing public.

2. The current state of affairs
A number of important steps have been taken in order to better
prepare the Stedelijk for the future. These include:
