Tate Modern London: 15 – 22 October 2017
TENT Rotterdam: 19 – 25 November 2017

TENT Rotterdam and Tate Modern are working together for the second time on an intensive youth exchange programme. Ten young people (aged 18 to 25) from Rotterdam and London can join a workshop programme which addresses the question, ‘where does culture happen?’ During workshops, field trips, and discussions, the group researches where culture is produced and how it relates to the exhibition spaces of TENT and Tate. In these spaces, modern and contemporary art is displayed, preserved, and/or produced, but art and culture – in the widest sense of the words – is created in many more places: online, on the street, in domestic settings, and in social spaces. Gang culture, sports culture, squat culture, subculture – where in the city is this produced and for whom? How do these issues relate to the contemporary art institute?

You will start working, as a group, in London for a week using Tate Exchange – the project space on the fifth floor of the new Tate Modern building – as an operating base. You will be immersed in the metropolitan culture of London and learn about the role of art in society and the function of institutions, such as TENT and Tate, in a local context. Together with members of Tate Collective, artists, and makers from different disciplines, you will work on a public programme in which your findings are presented. In November, the group reconvenes at TENT to work on the same topic in relation to the city of Rotterdam.
