Santaclaus 10 year on the Eendrachtsplein


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