The Kunsthal Rotterdam is one of the leading cultural institutions in the Netherlands. With over twenty exhibitions a year, the Kunsthal offers a programme that is dynamic and always surprising. The Kunsthal is continuously transforming, and with its regularly changing exhibitions able to offer crossovers between various art disciplines. From modern masters and contemporary art to forgotten cultures, photography, fashion and design. The Kunsthal's exhibition programme gives it its national scope and international allure. In its iconic building designed by Rem Koolhaas, the Kunsthal stands for three core values: art, culture and society. The Kunsthal is not a museum, nor does it wish to be. Not having its own collection gives the Kunsthal absolute freedom, and making optimum use of that freedom is where its strength lies. With a small team, a wide range of exhibitions and activities are realised with a high turnover rate for a diverse audience. This is what makes the Kunsthal different from other institutions in the museum sector.

The building itself is indeed an 'art hall' and easy to reach by metro. There was an interesting exhibition on bakelite (telephones, switches etc), but the main reason we went here was because of Peter Lindbergh. It's a very impressive overview of his work as photographer, called ' a different vision on fashion photography'. Brilliant! Worth visiting!

Good displays, but the quality (mostly good) depends on the exhibition. Good thing: there are always surprises and unexpected exhibitions

The exhibitions and installations were well integrated. One could see how each section relates to the rest.

We went for the Peter Lindbergh exhibition , which was extraordinary and since we had a little time left in our program we also visited the Making Africa one and also this one is definately worth a visit.

We went to see the current photo exhibition by Peter Lindbergh, and spent also some time in the African exhibition. Both were great and time well spent. The section on the Erasmus bridge was tiny, and I wouldn't go there for that purpose.

Having made the trip from Amsterdam it was well worth the trip. Inspiring and beautifully curated! I went round the exhibition 3 times to totally absorb the experience.

You see, this museum rocks up with sets you call "Halls", right? There are 7 Halls overall, and going through all of the halls is like doing a puzzle. You don't know which is left and right and you're free to roam however you want. There is no 'first' and 'last' part of the exhibition. There is a store INSIDE... More
