‘Erasmus adagia’ in Rotterdam

On October 27th, the official unveiling of a series of banners with sayings of Erasmus took place at the Flag Parade at the Boompjes in Rotterdam. On the occasion of the birthday of our famous townsman on October 28th, the municipality of Rotterdam asked Mothership to give the sayings of the great philosopher more visibility.
Since the beginning of October, several exceptional and surprisingly timeless statements can be seen at several locations. Next to the banners on the Flag Parade, the ‘Erasmus Quotes’ can be found on the side façade of Hotel Emma on the Eendrachtsplein, at the metro station Wilhelminaplein, the air shaft at Kruisplein and at the metro entrance in Central Station. All the texts are designed by Tim Bontan of the design agency Bijdevleet.
The unveiling of the banners is the first phase of this project. In April and October 2016, a number of new quotes will follow at various locations in the city.
