, citing ‘Opening’.
The nine installations in the Van Abbe Museum reflect on the themes: Attitude, Inspiration, Habitat, Representation, Money, Fortune, Language, Discourse and Market. Curator Jules van den Langenberg, who is himself a participant in this year’s Talent Development Programme: ‘This presentation is a collective portrait that offers reflection in practical, poetic and critical ways on the multiform contemporary working practices of a young generation of designers.’Another side of design practice
All of the 33 participating designers provided input with conceptual as well as physical contributions such as sketches, prototypes and sources of inspiration. Van den Langenberg then invited nine progressive thinkers and makers from various fields to produce an installation based on these collections. The exhibition’s curator deliberately sought a museum context for the presentation: ‘Instead of showing completed projects or finished products by designers, in the cellar of the Van Abbe Museum we are showing another side of design practice.’Reflections on design practice
Every day from 11:00 to 12:00 there are meetings in the exhibition space, at which the participating designers, professionals from the field and other interested parties will enter into discussion about one of the exhibition’s nine themes. There are (limited) seats available. Click here

Talent development is one of Creative Industries Fund NL’s six key objectives. Every year an independent committee selects about 30 highly promising designers/makers to receive a year-long stipend of €25,000. These designers must have graduated within the last four years and be active within the diverse disciplines of the creative industries, from fashion design to graphic design, from architecture to digital culture. The stipend and accompanying programme are intended to facilitate the artistic and professional development of these individuals. The Fund has been showcasing this programme and its participants during Dutch Design Week since 2014. Click here
