STEDELIJK MUSEUM AMSTERDAM

‘DREAM OUT LOUD’

curated by Lennart Booij

The exhibition includes works by Pieke Bergmans, Agatha Haines, Bart Hess, Benedikt Fischer, Boyan, Slat, Claire Verkoyen, Dirk van der Kooij, Elisa van Joolen, Fairphone, Floor Nijdeken, Formafantasma, Helmut Smits, Hella Jongerius, Jesse Howard, Marjan van Aubel, Marleen Kaptein, Metahaven, Next Nature, Network, Olivier van Herpt, Patrick Kruithof, Pavèl van Houten, Pieter Stoutjesdijk, Studio Drift, Studio Roosegaarde, Studio Stallinga

The museum always issues an open call for submissions, inviting artists to submit their work for consideration. This year, the ‘open call’ looks at contemporary design. The chosen works will be featured in a large group exhibition and Stedelijk director Beatrix Ruf will purchase a number of the exhibited works for the museum’s permanent collection. Led by Lennart Booij, curator of applied arts at the Stedelijk, the international jury has now made its choice and will announce the participants in the next two months. The exhibition will focus on artists and designers whose practice involves exploring new approaches to relevant social issues, and designers who make innovative use of materials.

Na het internationale succes van Dutch Design slaat een jonge generatie Nederlandse ontwerpers nieuwe wegen in. Onderzoek naar de rol en functie van design is hun uitgangspunt. Steeds draait het om de vraag: wat doen we met de overdaad? Materiaal, techniek en het ontwerpproces worden herijkt. Vernieuwing ontstaat door stil te staan. Deze designers kijken om zich heen en vragen zich af: ‘hoe kan het anders?’
