How does one get from Salvador Allende Street to the André van der Louw Bridge?
The exhibition focuses on a solidarity movement that emerged in Rotterdam following the coup d’état in Chile on September 11th 1973, which ousted President Salvador Allende and his cabinet. In the years that followed, thousands of Chileans would take exile in Rotterdam, leading to the advent of new initiatives, artworks, landmarks and events. The multi-faceted solidarity movement unfolded, for the most part, in the 1970s and the 1980s. A central figure in this movement was André van der Louw, mayor of Rotterdam from 1974 to 1981. Website
