Working Through Conditions / Conditioning Feel the Vibe II

16/10/2021 - 01/04/2022

Installation at Eindhoven Airport by Hokjesdenkers, Percolate Collective, and re_move: three student collectives of MA Social Design, Design Academy Eindhoven

In the multifaceted project Working Through Conditions / Conditioning, second year MA Social Design students at the Design Academy Eindhoven (DAE) explore the legacy of De Stijl. This art movement is an aesthetic lingua franca that helped shape the formation of Dutch national design. Inspired by De Stijl, three installations displayed in the airport forecourt examine the ways in which artworks, airports and national iconography perform citizenship.

New ways of seeing

Engaging with both objects in the collection of the Van Abbemuseum and the elements of airport design, the three installations offer visitors different ways of seeing, listening to and moving through the space of Eindhoven Airport. These interventions are the result of a series of workshops, gatherings and lectures that took place at the DAE and the Van Abbemuseum.

Feel the Vibe

Since 2020, Feel the Vibe is a multiyear collaboration between Eindhoven Airport and Van Abbemuseum. It has welcomed visitors to an inspiring city, known for its contributions to art, design and technology. The first edition in 2020 presented the works of The Ruggeds and Tijs Rooijakkers in displays designed by Piet Hein Eek with graphic design by Marc Koppen.

Partners

The second edition of Feel the Vibe is developed in collaboration with the MA Social Design students at DAE and realised by student collectives Hokjesdenkers, Percolate Collective, and re_move. Working Through Conditions / Conditioning was conceptualized and organized by Amal Alhaag and Anastasia Kubrak (MA Social DAE) with contributions from Ruben Pater. The MA of Social Design, one of the five masters offered by DAE, is headed by Marina Otero Verzier.
