With a great deal of satisfaction we are looking back on our anniversary year – on our diverse programming, the experiments we engaged in, and the team all of us were a part of. We are extremely grateful to our many partners and patrons and are stepping into 2023 with confidence. On this page you can revisit a number of highlights from the past year. And be sure to download our colourful 2022 annual report!
Kunsthal 30 years
The milestone of the Kunsthal’s 30th anniversary was celebrated at various moments in 2022. At the end of September, the anniversary exhibition Tim Walker: Wonderful Things was festively opened with a Pink Carpet event for many national and international partners and guests. Both lovers of architecture and fans of LEGO were activated during the launch of our limited edition Kunsthal model construction kit. And in the last weekend of October we invited a wide and diverse audience to celebrate the versatility of the Kunsthal and be enchanted and amazed during It’s a Kind of Magic, a magical anniversary event that lasted thirty hours on end.
Embedded in the Kunsthal’s mission is the aim of introducing as wide and diverse an audience as possible to art and culture. We therefore find it important to present a programme that a wide range of people can identify with, and in which everyone can get involved. The high-contrast programme of exhibitions and events leads to interactions between the various audience groups. They all come together at the Kunsthal where they are introduced to each other’s opinions and backgrounds. We offered a stage for inspiring modern masters and contemporary artists, animators, young makers, dancers, and musicians. And we also put the spotlight on extraordinary communities and important international makers.
The power of collaboration
Kunsthal Rotterdam would not be able to exist without local, national, and international collaborations. Download the annual report and check out the list of companies, sponsors, museums, relations, donors, lenders, artists, scientists, performers, makers, and many others who collaborated with the Kunsthal in 2022. Thanks to many committed partners we could also organise another inspiring Kunsthal LIVE programme in 2022: from Masterclasses, Tastemaker Tours and ArtCouples to Naked Tours and dance events during Kunsthal LIVE on Sunday.
