RCH #15: ORIGINALS AND PUBLIC FAVORS
"Art is elitist'is a common accusation against art. "Citizens are always bothered when it comes to art," is a frequently heard distrust of the other side.
This edition of Rotterdam Cultural Histories tells a very different story. It shows how Rotterdammers cherish the images in their city, lobby for them and take action or adopt them if necessary. With stories about 'Kabouter Buttplug' (Santa Claus), "Jan Gat" (The destroyed city) and the Friends of De Witte Bollen initiative. The exhibition 'Orphans and public favorites' can be seen in TENT from Friday 19 October.
Rotterdam Cultural Histories is a collaboration between TENT and Witte de With, with which their common roots in Rotterdam are explored and the interfaces between the two programs are shown. The exhibition can be seen on the first floor at Witte de Withstraat 50.
