BY POPULAR DEMAND AVL Mundo is proud to announce that our outdoor public art project Let’s Get Physical is being extended!

Over 5200 people have visited this nomadic art exhibition which is an alternative and safe way to explore art and the Rotterdam-West @m4hrotterdam area.

The sculpture route is still on view at all 13 locations until further notice.

Sculpture route ‘ Let’s Get Physical’ is a dynamic exploration of the burgeoning industrial Merwevierhaven area in Rotterdam-West, highlighted through a selection of 30+ Atelier Van Lieshout works at 12 different locations. Atelier Van Lieshout, the studio founded by artist Joep van Lieshout, was one of the first art studios to settle in the Merwevierhaven in the 1980s and continues to expand and foster projects that elevate the area. ‘Let’s Get Physical’ starts at AVL Mundo Sculpture Park, the heart of the sculpture route and fans out over M4H. Other participating locations are: Weelde, Floating Farm, Keilecafé, De Voedseltuin, Keilewerf, Stichting Dakpark and several publicly accessible venues.

18 July – Until further notice!

AVL Mundo X Operator Live Session
*UPDATE – AVL Mundo x Operator Live Session = Postponed*⠀


We regret to announce that we have to cancel our first Live Session due to the tightened corona measures. We are looking
forward to welcoming you on a new date which we can hopefully announce soon. Make sure to follow our social channels to stay tuned about this.⠀

Much love and stay safe, Team Operator & AVL Mundo.


Let’s Get Physical, but don’t stand too close! As part of the exhibition, AVL Mundo and Operator are teaming up for the first Operator Live Session the 2nd of October at Atelier Van Lieshout . Be prepared for an evening full of Dutch absurdism where live music and performance meet. Performing bands will be Le Motat and De Witte Kunst. Get your tickets soon because the seats are limited.

About the bands:

De Witte Kunst is on the rise. The Dutch music duo consists of multi-instrumentalist Lyckle de Jong and writer / singer Koen van Bommel. Together they make a kind of cabaret pop with deep roots in the synth pop of the early eighties. An absurd performance with lyrics about Atlantis and the virtual world. Worth experiencing.

LE MOTAT = Tato Wesselo’s alter ego. He create Dutch Weirdo Pop with balls: about sex, about love, and about people who have to put their HEAD in the ICE. His performances are raw, unexpected and absurd, but it will also let you sing along with one of his catchy pop songs. Last year Motat produced his first EP1 together with Roy van Rosendaal (Figgie), which he will release on September 25. Fancy something new? JOIN CLUB LE MOTAT.

Friday October 2nd 20:00 New date to be announced
