Art Map 3.0
This is the third time we publish our Rotterdam Art Map. We were curious (again) to know how many spaces, platforms or aesthetic zones for contemporary art are currently active. The invitation from Eva Visser to contribute to the new journal Puntkomma gave the fuel to speed things up. A lot has changed after the cultural erosion of 2011. This mapping is a call for engagement and fraternization. We can do with some more quality, mutual respect and interest in each other’s activities. Forget Lonely Strive! For this reason we list the independent project spaces side-by-side the institutes and commercial galleries. Let’s go to all openings and gather at events and art talks, take part or initiate a discourse… excite your brain and be merry.

Rotterdam is the largest port in Europe and the poorest city in our country—Huh? However, the slogan ‘Arm aber Sexy’1 does not apply. Rotterdam is not Berlin, and I seriously doubt this is the “coolest” place to be, as the Rough Guide and New York Times recently stated. Who informed them, Jules Deelder? It will be fun: Rotterdammers hate tourists. In Berlin there are around 500,000 visitors every day.2 In 2010 over 100,000 people under 33 moved to Berlin.3 The motor for coming and going are the countless residency programs, the city history and bohemian lifestyle. Three fourths stay after their residency.4 Berlin has 300 commercial galleries, 150 independent project-spaces , and numerous amazing bookshops.5 Tell me, where in Rotterdam can I get the latest Afterall, Artforum, Nero, or Mousse?

Rotterdam is a windy provincial town with just over 600,000 inhabitants—around 1100 are officially registered as artist/member of CBK.6 In 2030 the population is expected to be 660,000.7 The ‘Golden Years’ of Rotterdam were the 1990s. This was the city you moved to! There were plenty opportunities, free space in the harbors, numerous studio buildings with artist-run activities, residency exchange programs. Witte de With under the enthusiastic direction of Chris Dercon was a huge “magnet” for the Dutch art scene and at openings the stairs were packed with people. Also the City collection (Stadscollectie), and De Villa (cbk) initiated beautiful shows that really helped local artists to be "visible" and gave a change to experiment and lift their careers to an international level. There was ‘energy’ and we all believed in Art. After fundamental reformation of the cultural landscape in 2005 the city lost ‘it’.8 Just before the financial crisis in 2008 the international scene began to leave the city for Berlin, Brussels, or... The motor for leaving: the discontinuation of the residency exchange programs and lack of possibilities at every level. And now after the ‘Shock and Awe’ in 2011 of former cultural minister Halbe Zijlstra killing the budget for the arts, a cultural meltdown was set in motion.9 On top of this, the city council decided no longer to support “internationalism”. The financial crisis also accelerated the privatization processes: exploiting the crisis for radical free-market capitalist transformation. But who benefits from this? The city needs quick money and started selling off public buildings like collective studio buildings, with a collateral damage of around 150 ateliers. Simultaneously the biggest building in Europe was erected, OMA’s The Rotterdam. The vertical city blew some new holes in the horizontal city—The Rotterdam instead of Rotterdam? Star architect Rem Koolhaas himself has his HQ here since 1981, and several of his projects are under construction in the city right now, but he prefers to live in Amsterdam. Rotterdam is—since 1.30pm 14 May 1940—a traumatized city, and it seems to repeat it’s trauma: once something is build up and starts to function and be nice (gezellig) it is demolished and leaves a new hole—like the hole in Ossip Zadkine’s De Verwoeste Stad (The Demolished City, nicknamed Jan Gat, John Hole).

In 1996 Manifesta 1 took place, and in 2001 we were Cultural Capital. Both brief flirtations with the international art world. Since the 1990s the cultural policy was to become Hollywood aan De Maas. But over the recent years the film- and video industry disappeared again. Catherine David said in an interview with FGA (24-1-2005): ‘Rotterdam—and Witte de With—is an offshore base, a lab. But now, with the populist politicians (Leefbaar), you see there is no longer this ambition, not even on the level of discourse.’10 The last VVD’s local election posters “In Rotterdam spreken we Nederlands” painfully confirms this. What is left after all this?

In 2009 for Art Map #1 we counted 77 “contemporary art zones”, one year later there were 73, and now I counted 57. Maybe Rotterdam will one day be for architecture and design what Paris is to fashion, and Berlin to art? Fortunately we still have IFFR film festival, and some new interesting initiatives were born like Upominki and Blu Heron Social Club.
I applied a simple rule for this list: the zone for contemporary art that’s listed is visible, active and supports the arts. Be it white walls or black holes, on the web, a collective studio building with residency program, film screenings, magazines and blogs, a small publishing house, non-profit project space, commercial gallery, or an art institute. Balance at the moment: independent zones (32), commercial galleries (11), institutes (11), and events (3).
So much for the quantity; what about the quality?
