Disclosing, rethinking, 2022




Just in #1, 2022

Just in #1 exhibits ten archive pieces that have recently been added to the National Collection of Dutch Architecture and Urban Design. They are the first results of a acquisitions policy that now focuses more on current social themes, feminist practice and decolonisation.



Ministerie van Ontroerend Goed, 2022

This installation by Maurik Stomps invites visitors to take a seat at one of the desk at the Ministry of Moving Matter. The space and furniture are deliberately a little to small, which puts the power of bureaucracy into perspective. Anyone can leave their own written drawn or photographed story about the city here, or record a message via the telephone to contribute to a growing archive.  The collectively curated archive will aim to answer the central question of this project: ‘how public is public space’ 

Designing the Social is an exhibition exploring 100 years of socially driven, idiosyncratic ideas about living together. 


Appropriation as collective resistance, 2022

The fundamental right to affordable housing is under pressure worldwide. Despite the efforts of governments, wealthy investors, internationally operating real estate firms and private individuals keep the sector in an iron grip. As long as the housing supply is scarce, their profits are high. But what transformations are possible when the right to property is subordinated to the right to affordable housing and to live in the city? Concept, research and spacial design: Farida Sedoc.

Roxy, 2022

The birthplace of house music in the Netherlands and a springboard for a new generation of musicians, artists and designers, the Roxy was a place where clubgoers delighted in transforming their appearance or gender identity. In this room, club culture is central as a continuation of the type of social design seen in Constant Nieuwenhuis’s New Babylon, Provo, and the squatters’ movement. Concept and research: Juha van ’t Zelfde; spatial design: Miroslav Rajic; video and lighting design: Karl Klomp.
