'Kunst in het Witte de Withkwartier' (Art in the Witte de With Quarter) will open the new cultural season providing a 'State of the Art' of the Rotterdam art sector. With that, the art festival will show a rich cross-section of all that Rotterdam has to offer on the cutting edge of performance art and visual art, with fashion, music, design, photography, video art and interventions in the public space.
During Kunst in het Witte de Withkwartier MAMA opens 'Laff Box'; a comedy club for contemporary visual- and performance artists whose work explores the boundaries between comedy and contemporary art. With Laff Box, MAMA looks at the comedy club as a setting for performance and humour as a means of expression and cultural product.

Friday 11 September 18:00 – 20:30
On Friday night Laff Box will open with a festive and musical performance night. Performances by artist duos echo+seashell and Steye Felix & Tanja Ritterbex. Expect smoke machines, disco lighting and miniature cheese fondue.

Sunday 13 September 15:00 – 18:00
On Sunday Mireille Tap will show her flexible and gymnastic performance, several times during the afternoon.

The exhibition Laff Box will be on view during the festival weekend. On Friday and Saturday the showroom will be open until 23:00 hours and on Sunday until 18:00 hours
