The time has come: Roodkapje will open her doors again!
As these unusual times require unusual answers, Roodkapje has turned (once again) into a Cultural Supermarket. Unlike the nickname for our space at De Meent however, this time we have become a real supermarkt, stocked with art works, products and objects made by our most beloved artists, musicians, designers and performers, for you to buy. Proceeds will help both makers and Roodkapje to continue to exist. So, get out of your house and into Roodkapje’s Culturele Supermarkt and help us help the makers!

Visiting the Supermarket is free, but you can choose to support Roodkapje by buying a ticket!
Whatever you choose, you always need a reserved time slot
Please book your time slot here:
Please note: one person per booking (including children!)
Want to come together? book similar time slots!
and PLEASE BE ON TIME: The time your time slot starts!

How does it work?
In order to guarantee optimal hygiene and safety, Roodkapje’s cultural supermarket is made into a parcours for you and your shopping cart. You get to see every part of the supermarket while safely keeping distance to other visitors. And of course the following rules apply:
- Keep 1,5 meter distance from others at all times
- Before entering the supermarket you will be handed plastic gloves so you can safely browse through products in the store
- Always use a shopping cart! It will be disinfected before use
- Members of the same household are allowed one shopping cart
- Stay in line and do not overtake
- The Culturele Supermarkt is PIN only!
- If you are unwell, have a cold, or have any symptoms of Corona, please stay at home!

Roodkapje’s Culturele Supermarkt has been made possible with the kind support of:
Brookland, Stichting Ondernemersbelangen Rotterdam, Fleur Groenendijk Foundation, Prins Bernhard Cultuur Fonds, Stichting Volkskracht, Erasmus Stichting, Stichting Elise Mathilde Fonds, Gemeente Rotterdam, and all contributing artists, musicians, performers, and designers

For questions about tickets and/or visiting the supermarket please email to:

Roodkapje offers a unique art programme, an exhibition space and an artistic development program in downtown Rotterdam.

Our art program is dynamic, surprising and multi-voiced at heart. Exhibitions, workshops, installations, talks, performances, experiments and the new Hamburger Community of Art residency form the basis of our 2019 programme. Whether it’s making Russian dumplings, performing a group choreography, creating face masks or indulging in a jelly fruit performance - you can engage in our public art program in many, many ways.

The Hamburger Community of Art artists-in-residence and the various art programmers are the ones who have the strongest say in the development of Roodkapje’s art programme. They determine the content and shape of the many activities that are being organized throughout the year and, thereby, are an integral part of Roodkapje. Without them, Roodkapje would not be the same.

If you are looking for unconventional, experimental yet accessible art, then Roodkapje is the place for you.

Hamburger Community of Art

Read more about the HCA residency program and artists below

With the Hamburger Community of Art residency program, Roodkapje takes a new direction in terms of the presentation, talent support and development within its art program. The Hamburger Community of Art (HCA) is a yearlong artistic development program for emerging artists. During this pilot year, Roodkapje aims to equip the selected artists – as well as the audience – with skills to be resourceful and self-sufficient in assembling diverse voices through training, mentoring (by a.o. Rory Pilgrim and Nada van Dalen) and with support in organizing events, presentations and workshops. The HCA will produce and host cultural events, social activities and projects that will be open to all audiences. 

The HCA is based on the principles of experimentation, collaboration and developing new artistic practices. Questions we need to ask ourselves are: What can artists learn from each other? How can (young) artists stimulate their development collectively? What can society learn from artists and vice versa?

Please keep an eye on our website and the HCA instagram page to join in on the HCA public program! Or walk by the window of the HCA to see what they are working on.

Iriée Zamblé

• Iriée Zamblé •

Expressively painted heads of self-contained people of colour are playing the lead in Iriée Zamblé's work. Zamblé puts a magnifying glass upon some of the people that may pass us by daily. Acquaintances, passengers and friends therefore lay at the base of the painted heads. By appropriating details of their appearance, Zamblé shapes a new bold figure. The portrayed are depicted to present themselves as a norm in its variety. With her latest series ''The Default” Zamblé positions people of colour as a standard rather than an exception.

Danielle Hoogendoorn


• Danielle Hoogendoorn •

Danielle Hoogendoorn works impulsively and associative, and so is her use of materials. Based on her experiences, she tells her stories portrayed by her favourite animals. Animals play and important role in her life, as they are means to see how far she can go before the border between art and kitsch is crossed. Even though Daniëlle’s work appears sweet and girly at first sight, things are not always as peaceful as they seem. Through her direct approach she tries to take the formal character of painting, and the museum’s white wall out of account, looking to redefine these existing conventions with banality and humour.

Rafiq Abbasov


• Rafiq Abbasov •

Rafiq Abbasov is an emerging international artist from Azerbaijan. His work is staged around the understanding and meaning of time. In his perspective, time is the only variable that we, humans, have no control over. By accepting this fact, Rafiq fills this continuum with temporary multisensory experiences to both escape and explore a new meaning of the perception of time. One of his recent conclusions is the definition of playground: Playground as a counter-public space in public space. My works are in continuous search of (free) space human being can find, to define their own rules of understanding, away from controlled systems.

Lavinia Xausa


• Lavinia Xausa •

Lavinia Xausa (IT) works, lives and pretends to learn Dutch in Rotterdam. The center of her artistic practice consists in applying semiotics and sacred art research to an ongoing, participatory art practice, by involving groups of people on self analysis and auto-recognition of their own role in history. Shifting through different kinds of media, from photography to moving images, found footage, sound and text, from writing to performance, she aims to reframe the present in the light of ancient narratives well established in the collective memory.

FOEF is a platform for the queer community based in Delft. They offer a space to come together and celebrate what it means to be out and proud. At the beginning of March 2019, FOEF flew over to Rotterdam to throw a fairytale-themed night at Roodkapje full of magical STARDUST, poisonous apples, glass STILETTOS and golden carriages. 

At FOEF, you do not have to dress in a certain way, talk about certain things, dance in a certain way and love in a certain way. You can dress/talk/dance and love however and whoever you want! So you don’t have to be gay to join: the more diversity, the better!

Join this queer initiative next time for a non-conformative art, music and fun party.
