BKOR (Visual Arts & Public Space)
There is no city in the Netherlands with so much visual art in public space as Rotterdam. BKOR manages and renews the extensive city collection in collaboration with involved Rotterdam residents, companies and institutions. BKOR takes care of the management and maintenance of this collection and archives extensive information about the images. With SIR, BKOR organizes a number of activities to bring the images to the attention of a wide audience.
Z-Files, Art and the City
BKOR and Sculpture International Rotterdam (SIR) work together intensively to strengthen and renew the Rotterdam public space. They regularly organize this Z-Files, about art and the city in which art, public space and the city are discussed through lectures, presentations and excursions. The aim of the program is to bring attention to the special collection of artworks in the public space of Rotterdam and to highlight current developments in the city.
BKOR and SIR together provide a Z-Filesnewspaper. The first edition of the Z-Filesnewspaper appeared in September 2014. From the introduction of CBK Rotterdam director Ove Lucas:
“BKOR and SIR are doing everything they can to constantly reinvent Art and the City. The city moves, the art moves with it. These two programs from CBK Rotterdam, each with its own unique character, make it possible to enrich the city at a high level and to deepen the activities of art in the public space. With the dynamic Z (from Zadkine) in the logo, Z-files, Art and the City stands for a program of reflections on the activities of BKOR and SIR. This newspaper is an example of that. ”
