Assemble Relatives is a temporary assembly of fourteen international artists across three contemporary art spaces in Rotterdam. The conversations, relationships and practices these artists have developed over two years, in the Master Fine Art at the Piet Zwart Institute, coalesce in this single moment before they disperse into a new constellation. Our hosts—MAMA, TENT and ramfoundation—provide the stage for a guided script in which the artworks at first speak for themselves, then shift positions toward each other and the audience over the course of the ten-day event.

Collaborations, artworks distributed en route, changes in the installations, bursts into songs, and performances inside and outside the three venues make Assemble Relatives a collective array of singularities.
