An unique collaboration between the Port of Rotterdam and Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen. From 29 May until 26 September 2010 an abandoned 5000m2 Submarine Wharf in the port of Rotterdam serves as the location for a thematic exhibition by Atelier Van Lieshout, established in Rotterdam by the artist Joep van Lieshout (1963).

This exhibition, Infernopolis, deals with themes such as life and death, the recycling process, autonomy, self-sufficiency, economics and power. The public will be able to view two enormous installations, ‘The Technocrat’ and ‘Cradle to Cradle’. In these installations humans are a part or the result of a radical version of the recycling process. The exhibition also contains sculptures that relate to the aforementioned themes.
