Art Rotterdam has become the strongest contemporary art fair in the Netherlands.

As for its quantity, it isn’t too big or too small and quality standards have become quite high.

Although there are no radical statements, this year’s fair can’t be called dull.

Maybe the art world has shrunk back a bit by all kinds of radicality that seem to do more harm than good to the world, as things don’t look particularly happy-go-lucky either.

Of course an art fair isn’t a stage for philosophy, but the tendency is very much on what makes us human and what we value in life.

Anyway, don’t let Ciara stop you from going to take a look for yourself, as it’s worth it.
