The groundbreaking Dutch artistic movement known as De Stijl was founded in 1917. The most famous representatives of De Stijl were Piet Mondrian and Theo van Doesburg. In 2017 the Netherlands commemorated De Stijl’s centennial with dozens of exhibitions.

Rhythm Section wants to continue to celebrate the birth of De Stijl. The title of this exhibition at Karin Wimmer Contemporary Art in Munich refers to Mondrian’s famous paintings Broadway Boogie Woogie and Victory Boogie Woogie. In this exhibition we focus on the networking and exchange between contemporary artists who are concerned with the De Stijl movement.

This exhibition is supported by Kastner AG, Wolznach; Landeshauptstadt München; Tijl Fonds voor de beeldende kunst, Amsterdam; Dr Wies van Moorsel, Amsterdam; and Reuten Galerie, Amsterdam. The exhibition takes place in cooperation with Reuten Galerie, Amsterdam.
