The line-up of the new CrossLab Events / Willem de Kooning Academie is here! In conversation with biodesign specialist Pieter van Boheemen, Simone van Delft will reveal new relations between bacteria and graphic design. Thijs van Dalen and Harmen de Hoop take a look at the design of our daily routes and routines in public space and Stacii Samidin will question the stereotypical representation of gangs. In addition there will be a live 'Job interviewâ€™ between Job Taks and the Amsterdam firm Random Studio. The evening will be concluded with an Unboxing party in which David Lemereis (Bright's 'unboxing expertâ€™) will review Andrea Segato's version of the iPhone. Artist Niek Verschoor will be our host this evening.
In this new series of CrossLab Events we connect contemporary artists and designers to our graduating students. The events will present dynamic projects of various nature. What connects these WdKAâ€™s makers is their independent spirit and perspective. This young generation of designers and artists wants to disrupt borders and patterns. With their projects, they intend to comment upon the consumer culture of our ubiquitous visual, digital and social media.
The question of this evening: just how genuinely disruptive is this new generation according to the â€˜expertsâ€™? Within this framework, WdKAâ€™s new talents will be confronted with their heroes, masters, critics and professional â€˜soul matesâ€™. The new CrossLab Events show a diversity of work presented within in a variety of appropriate contexts.
