ARTZUID 2017 will take place from 19 May to 17 September 2017. Curator Rudi Fuchs has selected 60 abstract sculptures created by Dutch and international sculptors. The focus of this edition is the influence that the De Stijl movement has had on post-war sculpture.

Foundation Art Zuid has composed a special education programme for primary schools, secondary schools and special needs learning. Stories are available for preschoolers to get acquainted with the sculptures. The educational material is available free of charge thanks to sponsoring by Rabobank Amsterdam.

The educational material expands on the great innovation of the 20th century known as abstract art. The material deals with the De Stijl movement and its important proponents Mondrian, Van der Leck, Van Doesburg and Rietveld. While walking by the sculptures, the pupils complete assignments and learn how post-war sculpture was influenced by abstract art. They also see examples of figurative abstraction. The use of different materials, geometric shapes, contours, surfaces and an elementary use of colour are dealt with. Attention is also given to the unique location of the sculpture route: Apollolaan and Minervalaan in the middle of architect H.P. Berlageā€™s Plan Zuid (1917).

ARTZUID is an educational and cultural outing where students can gain CKV credits. During the visit pupils can have a picnic, draw, film or and take photos. Pupils in primary school can take part in a drawing contest and those in secondary school can submit short films and upload them to YouTube. Rabobank will name the winner of the award on 17 September at 1 pm. 

In 2011 ArtZuid won a prestigious EU cultural heritage award in the awareness and education category.
