The artists’ space Het Wilde Weten was founded in 1992. The building (that originally housed a Fransiscan nunnery, the Sint Mariaklooster) was converted into studios first by a group of artist and later with the help of the Municipal Services for Art and Culture, City of Rotterdam. Het Wilde Weten not only functions as a studio building but also as a public platform for all forms of contemporary art, cultural discussion and debate. The program is open to the public and consists of exhibitions, presentations, artist talks, discussions, events and festivals organised by HWW-members, guest artists and curators. Het Wilde Weten also manages a gueststudio (Click here for more information about our Artist In Residence program).
