Design Academy Eindhoven is pleased to announce the newest chapters of its GEO—DESIGN exhibition platform, including a digital exhibition on COVID-19, an exhibition on sand at Van Abbemuseum and an online archive of all previous projects of GEODESIGN.

The GEODESIGN exhibition platform is an ongoing exhibition series which approaches design from an investigative perspective, proposing new formats of research into the socio-economic, geographical and geopolitical forces shaping the work of designers today.

 

GEODESIGN: Sand. The Building Block of Modernity
As the third chapter to emerge from the GEO—DESIGN exhibition platform, GEODESIGN: Sand. The Building Block of Modernity features nine original research-based projects and one ongoing long-term research which explore sand as one of the most critical elements of our everyday lives. The exhibition portrays some of the possible applications, materialities, geographies and economies of this global resource, which—far from being unlimited—is running out.

Featuring works by Rawad Baaklini, Soline Bredin, Elissa Brunato, Matteo Dal Lago, Christoph Dichmann, Lucas Dubois, Romain Laval, Tiiu Meiner, Leo Orta, Bich Tran Quang, Anna Diljá Sigurðardóttir, Baiba Soma, Wu Yanjin and Atelier NL. Curated by Martina Muzi, edited by Jeannette Petrik, with a graphic identity developed and produced by Soline Bredin and Lucas Dubois. The accompanying publication is distributed by Onomatopee at the exhibition as well as online via onomatopee.net/exhibition/geo-design and in Eindhoven at Lucas Gasselstraat 2a.

GEO—DESIGN: Sand opened on October 17 at Van Abbemuseum, Bilderdijklaan 10, Eindhoven and will remain on display until November 15, 2020. Book tickets online at vanabbemuseum.nl/tickets. To ensure a safe, enjoyable visit please adhere to the current guidelines.

Beside GEO—DESIGN: Sand, Van Abbemuseum is currently showing the exhibition Internationals in the City, created under the direction of Joost Grootens, graphic designer and head of the Information Design department at Design Academy Eindhoven.

 

GEODESIGN: COVID-19. Travelling without moving
At covid.geodesign.online, the online exhibition GEODESIGN: COVID-19. Travelling without moving presents a digital journey through the complex manifestations of a global pandemic in the context of late-capitalist society. Entirely conceived and produced for the digital realm, the online exhibition collects and interlinks eight original projects developed by alumni of Design Academy Eindhoven from June to September 2020.

With strikingly different approaches to design and research, the online exhibition explores individual as well as global contexts through digital languages—coding, communication systems, video essays and 3D renderings. Featuring works by Colette Aliman, Noemi Biasetton, Mar Ginot Blanco, Karin Fischnaller, Lauriane Heim, Colin Keays, Felicity Morris, Tamara Orjola, Clara Ormières, Mathilde Philipponnat, Marvin Unger, Vincent Thornhill and Jasper Zehetgruber. The digital exhibition is curated by Martina Muzi and edited by Jeannette Petrik, with a graphic identity and web development by Domitille Debret and Giacomo Nanni.

 

Geodesign.online
Geodesign.online as an online archive of all projects from GEO—DESIGN: Alibaba, Junk, Sand and COVID-19, which gives the opportunity to delve into references, research, fieldwork, and design processes behind each project.

The digital archive can be accessed at geodesign.online and is a lasting digital resource which will grow with each episode. Edited by Tamar Shafrir and curated by Martina Muzi, graphic design by Domitille Debret and Giacomo Nanni.

 

*Virtual live events
To celebrate its newest editions, the curatorial team of GEO—DESIGN will meet online viewers in a live-streamed tour through the exhibition at Van Abbemuseum, featuring project stories and conversations with participants on October 22 at 4pm CET on the Instagram account of Design Academy Eindhoven @designacademyeindhoven, alongside additional live talks throughout October and November.

Join us for this unprecedented dive into a (post)covid world!
