Peace by Design

MUST Stedebouw, 2021

€18.175
The design agency MUST has been invited by the Cooper Hewitt Smithsonian Design Museum in New York to collaborate with them on one of the elements of the 'Designing Peace' exhibition. This exhibition brings together designs from around the world to show how designers work with communities, individuals and NGOs to create lasting peace. MUST will contribute to this project with Startblok Elzenhagen, a temporary housing project in Amsterdam Noord, initiated by housing associations De Key and Eigen Haard in close collaboration with the design agency. In Startblok Elzenhagen, young Dutch people live together with young 'status holders' (refugees granted a residence permit). It provides affordable housing for young people looking for somewhere to live in the city, who are socially engaged and who would like to actively contribute to a better, healthier and safer living environment.

Database of women not wearing bikinis

Bente de Bruin & Monica Alcazar-Duarte, 2021

€7.500
Photographer Monica Alcazar-Duarte (Mexico/United Kingdom) and data and code programmer Bente de Bruin use a video installation to show the impact of biased search engines and social media algorithms on the Mexican portrayal of women. The installation will consist of responsive portraits and an AR app that shows both the bias of the current algorithms as well as an alternative crowd-sourced database that contributes to a more positive image of Mexican women. The installation will also show a code-generated film. The installation will be presented in March 2022 at the biennial for contemporary photography in Mannheim, Germany.

Dhvāni

Budhaditya, 2021

€10.500
In his project 'Dhvāni' – meaning resonance in Sanskrit - Budhaditya Chattopadhyay focuses on sonic rituals and pre-modern listening methodologies. He aims to do this through a series of self-regulating and autonomous media art works consisting of traditional and ritual objects from South Asia, such as temple bells, a Buddhist gong, a wind chime and ghungroos. For this installation Budhaditya uses Machine Learning models. The resulting algorithm will, with datasets of temple bell sounds and the presence of the public, serve as conductor of the experience produced by the installation. Budhaditya collaborates with various parties: Rewire Festival (Netherlands), Mur.at (association for Net Art and Network Culture in Austria), and the Serendipity Arts foundation from New Delhi, India.

Temporary Procedure for International Collaboration Website / application

Basketclub

Basketclub, 2021
The Dutch designer Adrianus Kundert has teamed up with the Canadian designer Jamie Wolfond to establish an online platform on Instagram about basket weaving (also known as basketry). The goal is to create new opportunities for Dutch designers through the exchange of knowledge about basket weaving, and to help them link up with international makers. This year the team aims to increase the platform's impact by developing their own website and building a network with the makers involved. The first part of this project consists of a concept and research phase, during which Kundert and Wolfond will meet the relevant people online. They will then set up a network and draw up a plan. The second part will focus on the further development of the concept into a website.

Variable Type as object

Studio Charlotte Rohde, 2021
Charlotte Rohde and Vera van de Seyp bring a new perspective to Dutch and German typography and type design with the help of emerging technologies such as variable type and creative coding. The designers feel that women are underrepresented in the type design and coding fields. For this reason, the project will be carried out from a feminist perspective and will make a critical statement about Dutch and German typography and type design. The results will be presented in Berlin.
