Sat 15 September
Pop-up Tourist Information Rotterdam-Istanbul
In 2012 The Netherlands and Turkey are celebrating 400 years of diplomatic relations. By the manifestation Tourist Information, both cities are presented in a new way, as ‘promotion’ through the eyes of artists and with the works of architects.
They are literally put on the map in another city, where the photographers and architects are challenged to present an image of the city, responding to existing campaigns with personal and artistic reflections. The artists are challenged to explore their artistic view to create a new and alternative ‘campaign’, exploring the sense of the city with their own means. Tourist Information temporarily becomes the fictitious centre of a city in another city.
The manifestation takes place from the 15th until the 26th of September.
