SKOR Pass Travel excursion to Portscapes projects

On Sunday 8 November 2009, SKOR and the Rotterdam Port Authority organised a Pass Travel, excursion to various Portscapes art projects on the Rotterdam Maasvlakte in cooperation with the International Architecture Biennial Rotterdam.

On the way participants could listen to ‘philosophical dialogues’, part of the project of Fucking Good Art (Nienke Terpsma and Rob Hamelijnck) with contributors including Hans Aarsman and a botanist. Visits were made to several Wastelands as described in Lara Almarcegui’s project. She researched the ‘wasteland’ sites which can be found all over the Port of Rotterdam and produced a newspaper on the subject. Botanist Remko Andeweg gave a talk during the excursion.

Along Europaweg, participants were able to see billboards of the artists Marjolijn Dijkman, Jorge Satorre, Paulien Oltheten and Hans Schabus.

At FutureLand, the information centre for Maasvlakte 2, presentations of Paulien Oltheten and Hans Schabus could be visited. The visitors could explore the surroundings while listening to the audio tour of Ilana Halperin. They could also attend the performance of the ‘Postpetrolistic Internationale’, the project of Roman Keller & Christina Hemauer, which took place at the same time.
