Between 2010 and 2013 Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen has organized four large scale exhibitions in the Submarine Wharf: Infernopolis by Atelier Van Lieshout, The One & The Many by Elmgreen & Dragset, Ballads by Sarkis en XXXL Painting by Klaas Kloosterboer, Chris Martin and Jim Shaw. Each of these internationally acclaimed artists took on the raw, industrial space, measuring almost 5000m², in a unique way.

This richly illustrated publication documents the magical moments of an international art programme that Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen was able to realize in collaboration with the Port of Rotterdam Authority.The publication will feature the four exhibitions separately, each with an essay by the curator and multiple photographs of the installation, an introduction by director Sjarel Ex on the story behind the process of making exhibitions in the harbour of Rotterdam and an essay by Maartje Berendsen, representative of the Port of Rotterdam Authority on the history of this remarkable location.
