"That Lion King scene when Mufasa says to Simba, 'Don't go there, because that's where the dark realm is' or something. That's how everyone always acts about Rotterdam South, like 'You shouldn't go there'. So much is arising here from the streets. That pride and that kind of togetherness and love, I find that super inspiring." - Jayda
Creativity is flourishing in Rotterdam South, and many young makers get inspired here. Boijmans spoke with three young makers in Rotterdam South: what is their idea of the museum of the future and what connects them to Boijmans Hillevliet?
The stories of Jayda Reeberg, Gyatso Davids and Isa Zichterman have been recorded by filmmaker Loes Korten. The three short documental stories take you on a journey through their life, work and career. Through these stories, the young makers take the stage, and they become the heroes of Boijmans Hillevliet.
"To me, creating means leaving something behind. A collection of images I created, which after my death will be my view of the world. How I saw the world, or how I wanted to see the world. How I experienced it, or how I wanted to experience it. That's what creating is to me. To share something with the world, and then leave it behind." - Gyatso
“I think Boijmans Hillevliet can really stimulate autonomous and young people, who are busy trying to find themselves in artistry and creative findings. And that they can come together there to create.” - Isa
