In 2011 the Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam presented the exhibition Recollections in two parts, which 'recollected' the museum's earlier shows Bewogen Beweging (1961), Dyllaby (1962) and Op Losse Schroeven (1969). While they did not presenting either exactly live art, or performance, all three have been crucial in the history of how 1960s art brought live action and interaction into museum galleries. The article discusses the curatorial agendas and strategies in recollecting the exhibition events through archives and collections, and turning them into events again. For Dyllaby and Bewogen
Beweging curatorial attention was shown to the interactive and performative character of the historical shows (Recollections I). However the 2011 exhibition itself was a very static presentation of archive materials and memorabilia. To the contrary, while Recollections II about Op Losse Schroeven emphasized its influences on the museum's collection after 1969, the curatorial approach created a quite dynamic and layered experience.
