Self Unself
2013

From 19 October 2013, during Dutch Design Week, the Design Academy Eindhoven was the guest of the Van Abbemuseum with exhibition ‘Self Unself’.  The exhibition showcased works by designers related to the Design Academy Eindhoven, curated by the team of Thomas Widdershoven, Jan Koonings, Daniela Dossi and Irma Foldenyi.

The exhibition ran parallel to the graduation show and which will later evolved with different participants in Shenzhen and Milan. ‘The exhibition was the start of a lengthy dialogue which these two top institutions in Eindhoven wanted to conduct together in order to learn from each other and reach a lively exchange about the key ideas behind creativity.

The similarities and differences between the ways in which artists and designers work are examined, and an exchange is set in motion between the “design public” and the “art public”.’

Participating designers: Hella Jongerius, Eric Kessels, John Körmeling, Alicia Ongay Perez, Vincent de Rijk, Daan Roosegaarde, Lucy Orta, Ro-Smit, Makkink & Bey, Monica Alisse, Lucas Maassen, Daijiro Mizuno, Marije Vogelzang, Cody Wilson, Bertjan Pot, Dave Hakkens, Christien Meindertsma, Bora Hong, Vincent Tarisien, Tom Gottelier, Formafantasma, Jan Pieter Kapteijn
