The ’A Sequence of Operations’ screen prints by Rogier Arents (for New Window) will be exhibited at DAD Gallery Berlin.

Opening: Thursday April 28th 2016, from 18.00–21.00 (the artist is present)
Location: DAD Gallery, Oranienburgerstraße 32, Heckmann-Höfe, Berlin, Germany

On view until May 16th, 2016 (including Berlin Gallery Weekend).

The character of the different ‘A Sequence of Operations’ prints is defined by three variable elements: the colour of the ink (cyan, magenta and yellow), the position of the paper in relation to the silk screen (turned 90 degrees repeatedly during the screen print process), and by continuously changing the pattern of the screen by the random removal of grid point stickers.
Rogier Arents approached the silk screen printing process as a kind of computer program: A formula with variables, an input and an output. Each step leads to a new composition, resulting in 50 unique artworks.

In our talk with Harm Rensink and Niek Pulles (HEYNIEK) the scope of their collaborations was depicted. In their joint projects two attitudes and energies come together. Next to being an unorthodox visual researcher Niek is also the dynamic antenna, catching the signs of times. The more analytic Harm creates the scenographic context of these diverse elements and triggers. A perfect example of how two opposite powers together transform diversities into a universe that lifts ups participants as well as the public.

Dutch Design Daily LIVE #6, donderdag 7 april 2016, Pakhuis de Zwijger, Amsterdam.

Dutch Design Daily is een online platform met een tweemaandelijkse LIVE versie waar we je verrassen met de nieuwste en actuele items op het brede gebied van Dutch Design. Bekende ontwerpers presenteren hun werk, er zijn interviews en er is aandacht voor social design, duurzaamheid, innovatie, onderwijs en erfgoed.


In this episode architect, designer and researcher Arna Mačkić gives an insight in her personal history, coming from Bosnia to the Netherlands as refugee, and how this ‘journey’ influenced her professional development. Architecture and city planning often ignore the history of a specific city or site, or only communicate a certain aspect of it. In her work she wants to raise awareness for the complete story. Therefore she researches hidden or forgotten facts and rituals, and other sociological conditions. By implementing them in her work the history of the specific location becomes a fruitful tool for the future.

Our guest Angelique Spaninks of MU and STRP Biennial tells about her path from being a journalist towards her curatorial profession. A change of perspective, but it is this combination that makes her stand out. Her plea is co–creation between different disciplines and its fringes. By doing so she matches with the tendencies of contemporary visual arts and culture. She is a strong example of somebody who thinks global and acts local, in which she links Eindhoven to the rest of the world.

Our guest Edwin van Gelder of Mainstudio is known as a graphic designer of books and publications. Yet in our conversation he also expresses his aim to work at a more spatial and monumental scale. He describes his personal trajectory, from graphic designer towards visual author, and how his projects are not formed by question–answer situations; they’re co–creatorships with commissioners. Like a scriptwriter, he develops a language/system, which only later he visually translates.

During our talk with designer Arnout Meijer he explains the significance of perception. Inspired by for instance philosopher Merleau–Ponty he sharpens his ideas and thoughts about illusion as reality. Furthermore he gives an insight of his educational design background, the engineer focused Technical University Delft and the more artistic Design Academy Eindhoven. In his current more autonomous work he combines technology, science and arts on a rational as well as intuitive manner.
