Everyone has a family, family comes in all sorts and consistencies. What does family mean to you?

These questions are central to the group exhibition Family at Stedelijk Museum Schiedam. Twenty artists center their exhibited work about contemporary issues that involve family life such us birth, coming of age, marriage, and goodbyes. From video to sculpture from performance to photography, different mediums are used to exhibit our ideas and emotions about our family.
