Off Blaak | Free port

Off Blaak | Free port is the title of a new cultural program investigating the possibilities of extending the cultural axis 'Museum Boijmans van Beuningen - Witte de Withstraat' towards the east, to the Wijnhaven area, performed by visual artists Milou van Ham and Niek Verschoor on behalf of CBK Rotterdam.

Another partner in this project is the Willem de Kooning Academy (WdKA). The Wijnhaven area could become a transitional area between the academy and the art spaces in Witte de Withstraat and Museum Boijmans van Beuningen. A hybrid zone where professionals and students in autonomous and applied arts work together and present. To explore these possibilities, a number of activities are organized, such as the exhibition Trespassers W. of students from the WdKA.
