Mastering the Material / Dutch Design Week 2017

An exhibition celebrating the (un)controllable qualities of materials in art and design.

This year, we celebrate the (un)controllable behaviour of materials in the process of making. Burg graduates and students have been capturing and mastering various materials such as porcelain, foam, glass, ceramics, soil, ropes – even the immateriality of air and sound. With a wide range of projects we share our thoughts and practices of “Mastering the Material” which has been taking place in the laboratories and workshops of our university. As well as exhibiting inspiring products, objects and dynamic installations, we invite visitors to take part in the daily activities in our on-site workshop in the Veem building.
