The R&D scheme
The Research & Development (R&D) scheme has been implemented by the Center for Visual Arts Rotterdam since 2010. The scheme gives Rotterdam visual artists the opportunity to develop and deepen their professional practice through research. In this publication, the Center for Visual Arts Rotterdam reports on the results of the first four years of R&D. The R&D scheme supports special projects, residencies, publications and research and was conquered by visual artists in spite of the then social developments regarding art. She has since led to numerous special projects.
Read, be surprised and view the 172 beautiful, diverse projects by Rotterdam artists that examine every conceivable segment of our society and that show how visual art is constantly connecting with other sectors of society.
