For this international partnership, the Rotterdam-based artist Charl Landvreugd and fashion designer Marga Weimans have formed a collective with eight youngsters and the two London-based artists Bafic and Yemi Awosile. Participants have the opportunity to learn about different artists’ practices and the relationship between art, the institutions and the public. The programme explores new models for collaboration in an artistic context where all participants have an equal voice.

On The Other Side Of Reality
TENT’s collaboration with Tate Modern is part of On The Other Side Of Reality, a project in which TENT explores ways to enhance the contemporary art institution’s approach to social, creative, and cultural diversity. The collaboration with the Rotterdam Summer Carnival is at the programme’s core. This year, TENT works with de Kunsthal and the Curaçao Instituo Buena Bista (IBB) – initiated by David Bade and Tirzo Martha – on participating in the carnival street parade on Saturday 30 July. During the IBB Summer School, the artists Mette Sterre and Klaar van der Lippe & Bart Stuart work with the young participants on the costumes and floats at de Kunsthal.
