73 zones for contemporary art _ last update Nov. 2011!
It has been almost 1 year since we published our first Art Map Rotterdam. We made this map because we thought nothing was happening in our city, that Rotterdam was a cultural dessert.
This revised version shows again there are many art spaces, aesthetic zones or platforms for contemporary art currently active (and open!), and that the city still offers possibilities for artists and cultural entrepreneurs. This time we made clear categories: project spaces, institutes, galleries, independent magazines and publishers, web based projects, collective studio buildings with a public program. There are 11 new spaces, and we deleted 15 spaces that quit, were not active or visible (to us), or went back into hibernation. It is a dynamic process. The moment this map went to print we counted in total 74 aesthetic zones of which 35 are white cube exhibition spaces, big or small.

Rive Gauche or Rive Droite?
The map shows the biggest concentration on the Rive Droit (Right Bank or Noord), and a small cluster on the Rive Gauche (South Bank or Op Zuid) in Charlois, and some scattered around Afrikaanderplein. The trend is that the city council is moving cultural venues to the South Bank and stimulate cultural entrepeneurs to move to Zuid to help regenerate (stadsvernieuwing en ontwikkeling) this poor residential area. Richard Florida is responsible for this. In some cases it probably will make a difference. But I really doubt a few artists, kunstenaarsparticipatie, and socio-artistic public projects are going to solve the big problems of Rotterdam; unemployment 8,5%, poverty, education, bad housing, poor integration, middle class leaving the city, and the lack of cultural elite.
Rive Gauche generally refers to the Paris of an earlier era. It connotes a sense of bohemianism, avant-garde and creativity. Sorry, Zuid is not Montparnasse and Laan op Zuid certainly not Boulevard Saint-Germain. Yes artists benefit from this with cheap housing and affordable studio spaces, and hopefully at the same time they try to influence the cultural poitical agenda. Still if you look at the new initiatives like Sils (with coffee bar Half Juni), L.P.Hendriks, and the cultural map Charlois 2009-2010 you will see that the (international) art community on the South Bank is growing. And maybe the crisis offers new opportunities to occupy empty spaces when new office towers will stay empty on Manhattan-Like Wilhelmina pier, and when all cultural venues have moved out of downtown Rotterdam.

We like to mention 11 new art spaces; Bob Smit Gallery, De Kapsalon, Galerie Van Krimpen, L.P.Hendriks, OCW- Podium voor kleinschaligheden, PAE (Performance Art Event), Roodkapje Rot(T)terdam, Sensational Mix, Sils, Wallgallery, and De Zwarte Ruyter. And finally we also like to share this information: starting from May artists can (again) apply for funding at CBK (read FGA#21). There is 300.000 euro available for research and development.
