NAI,Rotterdam, Netherlands
Dutchville is an exhibition that intentionally inspires conflicting feelings. At the fully renovated NAi, you can explore your love/hate relationship with the urban environment and discover how the city shapes and affects the way you feel. We see it at its most alluring and at its darkest and most foreboding. We take a trip through a traditional Dutch city with its historical centre, industrial estates, and new-build affordable housing developments. But what appeals to you may not be to the taste of your next-door neighbour – one man’s meat is another man’s poison. So what are the qualities you look for in a welcoming, comfortable city? And what would you avoid?
