50 Years of Paradiso: the Exhibition
The stories have been compiled together with Paradiso to commemorate the fiftieth anniversary of the Amsterdam pop temple’s existence. But that is not all: the exhibition 50 Years of Paradiso will be on display in the Amsterdam Museum from 29 March through 19 August 2018. In addition, Paradiso itself will be devoting attention to its birthday all year long with special programming. The aim is to retain and add to the stories once the exhibition has ended.
