Overview

Paying homage to Erasmus of Rotterdam, Florian Graf created a sculptural Pavilion, on which he floated down the river Rhine from Basel to Rotterdam, symbolically linking the city where Erasmus died with the city where he was born, providing a platform for dialogues and festivities along the way. The start of the performance was a panel discussion on June 15, 2016 during Art Basel with mayor of Rotterdam Ahmed Aboutaleb, publisist Roger de Weck and historian Christine Christ-von Wedel.
