ARTZUID 2021 – IMAGINE
The 7th edition of ARTZUID will take place from 1 July – 17 Octoberentitled IMAGINE. Originating from the song John Lennon wrote 50 years ago. As an artist he expressed in the lyrics his dream for a better world where the world is one. He was a committed artist just like sculptor Hildo Krop who 100 years ago, after the horrors of WWI, saw a new role for artists. As an artist, you had to contribute to a better society. His sculptures on façades and bridges in Berlage’s Plan Zuid are like pamphlets full of socialist symbolism for a better world.
ARTZUID 2021 shows artists with engagement, artists who work figuratively and expressively with an intercultural visual idiom.

As an artist, Krop wanted to make a contribution to society and bring art to people. In 1917 the construction of the southern extension of the city of Amsterdam, the so-called Plan-Zuid after a design by architect H.P. Berlage, started. On countless facades and bridges Krop’s sculptures shine full of symbolism about a better world for people, animals and nature.
