A Tale of A Tub is the first contemporary art institution in Spangen, Rotterdam. Based in the bathhouse of the world-famous Justus van Effen Complex, A Tale of A Tub focuses on the development and presentation of contemporary art practice. Research, reflection and dialogue are central to this. A Tale of A Tub offers artists and curators the opportunity to experiment and/or develop new work, with the organisation providing substantive and practical support.
This experimentation results both in a presentation programme of group and solo exhibitions and participation in local and (inter)national events. Intertwined with the presentation programme, a public programme is organised, consisting of performances, screenings, artist talks, publications, lectures by curators, scientists and theorists and theory development, around the practice of the artists A Tale of A Tub works with.
