Rotterdam art institution

Brutus is a Rotterdam art institution in the raw setting of a developing port area. It is a unique initiative born from a passion for art. A place that best translates as an artist-driven playground. Work by big names from international art is alternated with talent yet to be discovered. Brutus likes to give makers carte blanche to experiment and show their vision. All possible art and cultural disciplines are covered: from sculpture to performance, from drawing to video. Art that can sometimes be quite confrontational, and stimulating at the same time. Work that reflects the changing spirit of the times and ideas that inspire the future.

A major location with a total of 6000m2 of exhibition space. In addition to various large and small industrial spaces, the former port complex also houses the workshop and storage of Atelier Van Lieshout and a (freely accessible) sculpture garden: Brutus Garden.

In this area, where Joep van Lieshout once settled with his studio in the 1980s, van Lieshout's dream to create more space for art took hold. First by guaranteeing more and more space in the area for art with AVL Mundo and, since 2022, Brutus has also been added as a programming art institution. But there are even bigger plans for the future. Work is being done in collaboration with PowerHouse Company and Red Company towards new construction, which will be realized in a few years at the current location on Keileweg. A unique habitat where people can live, work, live and create and with plenty of space for all forms of contemporary art.
