Letters to the Mayor
The exhibition Letters to the Mayor – Rotterdam is one of the results of a year-long collaboration on the theme of ‘City Forces’ between Het Nieuwe Instituut and Storefront for Art and Architecture in New York. A select group of local and international architects are invited to write a letter to Mayor Aboutaleb of Rotterdam, articulating some of the pressing questions and desires that, as architects, they believe play an important role in the political dimensions and decisions that drive the making of cities and territories.
WORK, BODY, LEISURE
With the title WORK, BODY, LEISURE the 2018 Dutch Pavilion addresses the spatial configurations, living conditions, and notions of the human body engendered by disruptive changes in labor ethos and conditions. The project seeks to foster new forms of creativity and responsibility within the architectural field in response to emerging technologies of automation.
Het Nieuwe Instituut (Museumpark, Rotterdam) offers workspaces for creative entrepreneurs and enterprising creatives in the fields of architecture, design and digital culture under the name Workspace. Contact us if you want to be one of the first to work from Het Nieuwe Instituut and contribute to the further development of this new initiative.
