Youthquake (until augustus 22nd 2021)

Youthquake (until augustus 22nd 2021)

Kunsthal Rotterdam will be kicking off the new year with the multimedia exhibition ‘Youthquake. The Desire for Eternal Youth’. The exhibition reveals the strong influence youthfulness has on our image culture, at the hand of garments, photographs and videos. The fashion world provides excellent possibilities for being ageless – or at least for appearing to be ageless. And the desire to remain forever young is a theme that is also disseminated widely through marketing strategies and the (social) media.

The exhibition ‘We Are Animals’ brings together a great variety of extraordinary animal creations by over thirty contemporary artists.

Remix Rotterdam (until January 9th, 2022)

Remix Rotterdam (until January 9th, 2022)

This exhibition mixes it up, bringing together objects from all over the world – objects whose origins stem from the meeting of peoples and cultures. Remix Rotterdam freely associates on the basis of four different kinds of encounter: universal and artistic encounters, trade relations and colonial interactions as they were experienced in the colonial era. Each encounter brings objects and artworks together that combine to tell a story. The Rotterdam-based artist Paul van der Eerden was invited to trace the interrelations between the museum collections from a personal perspective. His intuitive encounters result in surprising combinations and links.
