TENT in het Gemaal op Zuid
TENT, the Historical Museum Rotterdam and Kosmopolis Rotterdam joined forces to stage exhibitions in het Gemaal op Zuid at the Afrikaanderplein in the district of Feijenoord, from 2009-2011. This new cultural platform for South Rotterdam is specifically devoted to the largest changing city district in the Netherlands and aims to highlight its cultural dimension. This initiative is supported by the Pact op Zuid programme and housing corporation Vestia.

Het Gemaal op Zuid is the name under which Kosmopolis, TENT and the Historical Museum develop a varied art and cultural programme as of January 2009. In a certain sense, the specific urban situation of South Rotterdam is illustrative for the development of the new Dutch society.
In that respect Rotterdam is on the brink of one the biggest transformations ever: the urban and socio-economic redevelopment of virtually the entire southern part of the city. To throw in a slogan here: 'Rotterdam South will be hip and happening' in the coming years. A network of artist initiatives has sprouted up around Foundation B.a.d., in the sub-municipality of Charlois in just a short period of time; Gallery Hommes has successfully established itself here as well, and the Creative Factory and the Art Hotel can be found near the Maashaven metro station. Underground art platform De Player has moved to the Afrikaanderplein square. The Kijk op Zuid Foundation is developing a cultural programme for youth in the area around the Van Zetten factory, and a plan is being prepared to bring art to public spaces.
Which cultural programmes could art organisations bring to this changing residential area? The programming of 't Gemaal is an exploration into new ways of combining cultural heritage with current arts practice to reach new public groups. Kosmopolis kicked off the initiative in October 2008 with the project El Hema.
A calendar of current exhibitions and events organized by TENT in 't Gemaal can be found on our homepage. Please consult the archive for past projects.
