Programme 2018

DAILY
Visit to the OBJECT design installation at the iconic Euromast. With an OBJECT ticket you’ll get free entrance (worth 9,75 euros per person) and the chance to experience the amazing view from the top. This icon of Rotterdam is an observation tower designed by Hugh Maaskant and constructed between 1958 and 1960. It is a listed monument since 2010. The tower is a concrete structure with an internal diameter of 9 m and a wall thickness of 30 cm. It has a “crow’s nest” observation platform 96 m above-ground and a nice restaurant. Here you can enjoy a cup of coffee, order lunch or have a fine dinner!

FRIDAY 9 FEBRUARY
Just outside the bustle of the city, tucked between the fringes of the port of Rotterdam, are the creative headquarters of AVL Mundo, founded by artist Joep van Lieshout. The foundation aims to support culture, in the broadest sense of the word. In their headquarters various activities are organized, from large utopian projects to (un)desired interventions. Also located within this creative haven is the studio of Atelier Van Lieshout. Here you can wander amidst the Atelier’s installations, where they are designed, produced and subsequently find their way to museums all over the world. AVL is just a short walk away from the new OBJECT location and warmly welcomes visitors on Friday evening between 17 and 19 hrs for a special and free tour. Sign up by sending an email to celine@objectrotterdam.com.
