The exhibition at the Van Abbemuseum in Eindhoven, Rewinding Internationalism: Scenes from the 1990s, today, is the second iteration of a three-part endeavour. The project as a whole thinks through the construct of internationalism through new commissions and collaborative research within the context of the museum confederation L’Internationale and their four year programme ‘Our Many Europes’. As an experiment in how the form and processes of exhibition making produce meaning, the show explores what the 1990s — a moment of seismic shifts across society and culture — mean today. This publication includes essays and interviews by artists, curators and researchers involved in the project, accompanied by extensive installation views from the Van Abbemuseum.
