The heart of the exhibition is in Berlage's monumental Plan Zuid with the leafy Apollolaan and Minervalaan. Here, in the green spaces, you can see theatrical set-ups of classical images combined with contemporary figurative art. New is a squares route with multidisciplinary artworks that connect with the history, culture and architecture of the neighborhood. In addition, solo presentations by internationally renowned artists mark the 2.5 kilometers long route from the Museumplein to the Zuidas.
