Description.note: This exhibition accompanied the publication Rotterdam 2057 – The Future Will be History.
Description: Rotterdam is a city of many contrasts, and is sometimes considered a testing ground for Dutch politics. At the same time, it is also the European Capital of Culture (2001), City of Architecture (2007) as well as the Best Festival City of the World (2010). In terms of demographics, Rotterdam is a part of the whole world more than it is a part of The Netherlands. The Port of Rotterdam, in that sense, is both a physical and metaphorical connection to the world.
Large social, cultural and political issues are contained by this city. In order to reflect on the present, it is necessary to develop visions and manifestos for the future. Visionaries should always try to look beyond the present, so where are the manifestos for the future of this city? The year 2057 starts today.
