New Neapolis
TENT, January 24 - July 21
photo: Aad Hoogendoorn
New Neapolis is a declaration of love for a new European city that could emerge if four port cities – Rotterdam, Liverpool, Marseille and Naples – forged an alliance. With an exhibition and docufiction, visual artist Gyz La Rivière shows us how these cities have always been related to each other. What can we learn from this urban context? What forms of brotherhood and solidarity for a future Europe can emerge here?

photo: Karolien Helweg
In Rotterdam Charlois on the Kromme Zandweg there is an island in a water feature where twelve red wooden 'wild' animals have perched.

Mural Black Horse Street
Black Horse Street, May 7
movie: Hans Wessels
Across the street from this new mural is El Trotamundos, a work by Chilean muralist Kata Núñez. Artist Anuli Croon reacted to El Trotamundos with her work: she placed the horses at a distance and, just like in Núñez's symbolic artwork, Croon also seems to play with the theme of solidarity. The neighborhood welcomed the work and celebrated the arrival of this colorful painting from the balcony and behind the open windows.
Lions on the Coolsingel
Museum Rotterdam, from 1 June
movie: Studio Louter

CBK Rotterdam selected and supervised the five Rotterdam artists and contributed to the artists' fees.

TENT, June 1 - September 6
photo: TENT archive
Artists have played a crucial role in the cultural development of Rotterdam for decades; as makers and as city makers. The 17th edition of Rotterdam Cultural Histories focused on the question of whether this role is still possible for artists in the city. The artist's initiative Kaus Australis was the case in point. The collective developed a model for DIY workshops in 1993, the exploding real estate market put this place under pressure. The building on Melanchtonweg has since been evacuated. Looking for a new space.

Everyone is dead except us
Intersection Binnenrotte and Hoogstraat, from September 18th
movie: Mels van Zutphen
The center of Rotterdam has a new monumental work of art richer: Everyone is dead except us from Ben Zegers. The work consists of two elegantly turned feet, which are spaced apart. The feet refer to the origin of the city, but also to the ancient function of this place as a market. The two images are in dialogue with each other like a customer and a merchant and remind us of the footsteps of the first Rotterdammers.

TENT, from October 17th

Joined Narratives shows work by filmmakers Katarina Jazbec, Lavinia Xausa and Heidi Vogels. The narrative film works have been brought together by curator Mariska van den Berg around the question of how experiences of exclusion, uprooting and loss – which are hidden from view – can be expressed and portrayed, and made tangible and open to discussion. The emotional world, memory, desire and imagination are central. The works of Xausa and Vogels will be shown in 2021.

The Traveling Hand
TENT, from October 17th

The exhibition The Traveling Hand was a playful game installation that revolved around a macabre archaeological find in Goa, India. Artist Gayatri Kodikal invited the visitor on a poetic and forensic exploration of different places and historical periods. Through interactive game elements, archive material, films and documentary fragments you exposed a complex web of geopolitical histories.

To conclude his urban poetship, Dean Bowen initiated a project with curator Rianne Zijderveld on the social impact of language and the language of the city. Like language itself, the exhibition was polyphonic and dynamic: changing constellations of artworks, poems and live events alternate in a spatial setting. At the same time, the Central Library presented an overview of Bowen's urban poetics, including a series of poetic films he made with the Rauwkost collective.

'Selamat Makan' means tasty food in Indonesian and is the name of Danny Rumbl's project in which he explores his Indian roots in order to incorporate imagery and themes in his work. He delves into the history of the Dutch East Indies: within his family and through (cooking) books and image archives. During the research, Rumbl keeps an image log that will guide him in producing free work: illustrations, prints, sculptures and murals. The publication of a small cookbook is also planned.

During Priscila Fernandes' research period, the final result of The Waterslide of Abstract Art took the form of a number of scripts for a television series. Fernandes initially wanted to write an essay on the relationship between 20th century leisure and abstract art, but the format of a series episode soon proved to be a better fit for the theme. She developed four scripts: about the city, the country, the beach and the mountains. Through these landscapes, Frenandes associates leisure with visual art.

Gwen Stok (R&D)

Gwen Stok wonders what happens when the Earth loses its gravity. “That invisible phenomenon that we so naturally make use of in our actions.” The loss of gravity is for Stok a metaphor for the era in which we now live; an era of great change. Stok I want to investigate how she can bring together different analog and digital techniques, media and publication options within one project.

(public) activities

CBK Rotterdam brings visual art, artists, the public and the city into contact with each other. We do this by organizing and supporting more than a hundred activities in the field of visual art every year. All these activities together lead to a lively and open visual arts sector in a lively and open city. Our activities are organized in collaboration with many partners in the city. We work together with visual artists, municipal authorities, cultural producers, cultural institutions, program makers, city makers, designers, civil servants and residents. See also 'Partners and Assignments.' On the following pages an overview of the public activities that CBK Rotterdam organized or contributed to in 2020.

PARTNERS, ASSIGNMENTS AND ASSIGNMENTS

An important objective of CBK Rotterdam is to strengthen the (income) position of visual artists in Rotterdam. We do this by means of financing schemes and giving and creating assignments to artists. This produces tangible results, for the artists and for the city. As a result, Rotterdam is increasingly becoming a vibrant metropolis with an active and attractive visual arts sector.

In 2020 we collaborated with or facilitated work for the following individuals, organizations, makers, partners and other directly or indirectly involved:
