Santaclaus 10 year on the Eendrachtsplein

Event: 28 / 11 / 2018
Location: Eendrachtsplein

On 28 November 2018 it is exactly ten years ago that Santa Clause by Paul McCarthy (US, 1945) found a permanent place on the Eendrachtsplein. Years of quarreling about this image preceded this, but in the meantime the image of 'crime against good taste' has become a public favorite.

Sculpture International Rotterdam celebrates this special birthday on 28 November 2018 between 16 and 18 hour with oliebollen and chocolate milk on the Eendrachtsplein.

View the exhibition in TENT (Witte de Withstraat 50) Public favorites and Orphan images, among other things about the controversy surrounding 'Santa'. This exhibition, the 15e in the series Rotterdam Cultural Histories, can be seen until 17 March 2019.

TENT is the platform for contemporary art in the context of Rotterdam with exhibitions, new productions, educational projects, performances and events with makers from the city and beyond.
