Witte De With

Institution and mission
Witte de With was established in 1990 as a center for contemporary art with the mission of introducing contemporary art and theory in the context of the City of Rotterdam as well as the Netherlands as a whole. The institution initially sought to present an alternative to both the classic museum for modern art and existing artistsÂ’ initiatives. Over the years, Witte de With has evolved, growing to also commission and produce new works of art. This has resulted in the development of a local, national and international network of people and organizations who follow and actively support the institutionÂ’s activities. From the very start, many of these were accompanied by or documented in publications, which are now widely distributed and read.

Witte de With continues to see its task as presenting the latest developments in contemporary art, without making concessions concerning their content, yet simultaneously seeking to reach as broad a public as possible. This website supports these efforts by providing news, an archive, background materials, and the opportunity for the public to react ... [ Read all ]

Solo exhibition at Witte de With

Opening: Friday 8 October 2010, from 6-9 p.m.

COSIMA VON BONIN’S FAR NIENTE FOR WITTE DE WITH’S SLOTH SECTION, LOOP # 01 OF THE LAZY SUSAN SERIES, A ROTATING EXHIBITION 2010 – 2011

At Witte de With, Center for Contemporary Art, the German artist Cosima von Bonin will present an exhibition featuring new works around the notion of sloth and fatigue.

Cosima von Bonin’s first major solo presentation in the Netherlands will occupy the entire Witte de With. With her typical laconic humor, von Bonin will create a constellation of new and existing works. From oversized stuffed animals to sewn paintings, from pastiches of minimalist sculptures to recreations of shop display systems, her work blends formalism and Pop, oscillating between seriousness and fun, weighed down with melancholy or fizzing with critical wit.

The exhibition’s title quotes the Italian expression dolce far niente that suggests the sweetness of doing nothing, a pleasant relaxation in carefree idleness. Here the expression takes on a certain irony, as this is i... [ Read all ]
