Creative Industries Fund NL presents new talent in Talent Tours
Every year, emerging design talents active in the fields of design, architecture and digital culture are given the opportunity to develop themselves optimally in artistic and professional terms, thanks to a grant from the Creative Industries Fund NL. The 2020 crop of talents has now been visualized in one-minute film portraits. These portraits can be seen from 18 September to 22 November in the 'Talent Tours' exhibition at MU, Strijp-S Eindhoven.
Social designer and bio-artist Kuang-Yi Ku, for example, outlines oppressive future scenarios in which he confronts the public with the question of what is still acceptable when it comes to the influence of medical science on our lives. Marwan Magroun made a photo series and film in which he wants to refute the stigma that rests on fathers with a migrant background. And Milou Voorwinden is conducting research into 3D weaving: a technique that can bring about a considerable increase in sustainability in the fashion industry.
