kunsthal

Last weekend we hoped on a train and headed down to Rotterdam. What's going on in Rotterdam, you ask? Munch. Above is a detail from one of my favourite pieces in the exhibition.The exhibition of Munch is at Kunst Hal, a 20 minute walk from Rotterdam Central Station. I wasn't allowed to take photos of the exhibition itself, so you'll just have to get down and see it all for yourself.The Kunst Hal from the exterior. But wait! There's more! On the top floor is an interesting display: Cake cathedrals and pudding pyramids. The Kunsthal says it presents "a large overview of cake and pudding moulds from the 17th and 18th century with lots of architectural references from geometric silhouettes to cubist shapes. Around sixty moulds from the collection of the Leopold Museum in Vienna along with old recipes and illustrations of dishes give a tasteful image of their time." And it was indeed a delectable display.
These illustrations are fab. So graphic.
Hmmm, looks familiar...And the cafe below. Had us a tasty burger.
The grounds are just as fun, with these three large rabbit sculptures.
