The Kunsthal Rotterdam presents the Locomotofrumphant, Mother Goose, Sparta Pete, Cuban Fly, Sawcap, Blue Bloodsucker and more creations by Jules Deelder. Better known as a poet and nocturnal mayor of Rotterdam, Deelder lets his poetic imagination make its presence felt by gluing coloured plastic things together.
Kunsthal Rotterdam is housed in a striking building designed by Rotterdam s OMA/Rem Koolhaas architectural practice and was opened in 1992. Since then, the Kunsthal has put culture in the widest sense of the word on show, from elitist to popular.
