Die Stadt von außen
Round table discussion: 07 / 05 / 2016
Round table discussion with Ernest van der Kwast
Former artists and architects-in-residence of the Goethe-Institut Rotterdam leave it in the exhibition Die Stadt von außen see their vision of the port city. 'Wild sites' and 'ghosts', polka dots, an alternative city map, a cow, and much more: during their stay, German artists and architects got to know Rotterdam in the most diverse way and celebrate with installations, drawings and video works diversity of the city.
The Rotterdam writer and journalist Ernest van der Kwast goes with the participants Juliane Schmidt, Antje Seeger en Su-Ran Sichling (visual artists, Dresden), Inge Paessen (urban planner, Cologne) and Thomas Rustemeyer (architect, Karlsruhe) in conversation.
Saturday 7 May 2016, 17.00 hour
Until 2 June, the participants present their versatile and highly subjective view of the city from outside. With the help of very diverse artistic means - including video works and installations, but also an alternative city map of Rotterdam - they have dealt with the deep impression that the city has left on them.
7 May to 2 June at the Goethe-Institut, Westersingel 9, Rotterdam
