Landmark project Göteborg

Artist Larsen Bervoets (Antwerp, 1979) is a multi-disciplinary and experimental artist. Coming months he will work on 6 different roofs throughout Europe, starting in Gothenburg. His works are characterised by tight geometric compositions that give an impression of ‘a space’. Often in these creations colours and colour patterns create an illusion of an extra dimension.

Rotterdamse Dakendagen

During the Rotterdamse Dakendagen (1-4/6) you can visit the city’s rooftops. The festival’s programme is centred around utilising rooftops in creative ways, as the city becomes more crowded and space is in high demand. Designers and artists let visitors experience the different ways in which rooftops can be used to make the city more lively, sustainable and resilient to the effects of climate change. Bovenop Zuid will also transform the six football fields of space on top of shopping mall Zuidplein (1-30/6) into an art park.
