ROODKAPJE presents ROT(T)TERDAM. A temporary project space of 7000 square meters in the old and inspiring city office at Meent 119-133 in of course Rotterdam. ROODKAPJE uses the space until the new city office, designed by Rem Koolhaas, will be built here. ROODKAPJE stands for promising talent. Artists who break through patterns, challenge, go to barricades, stand for authenticity and autonomy and contribute to social debate. They are not afraid of dialogue. This is how ROODKAPJE wants to present art, relevant, challenging and accessible.
