ONZIJN – Curated by Jurgen Bey is an exhibition comprising eleven inspiring projects in which designers react to their environment as they depart from an existing work. ONZIJN takes place in and around WOW’s building in the Kolenkitbuurt in Amsterdam West and puts this unique location at its heart: hotel, art factory, meeting place. The designers each stand for their own theme and were selected by guest curator Jurgen Bey, director of the Sandberg Institute and designer at Studio Makkink & Bey. The themes originate in WOW as a temporary habitat for both the artists and the hotel guests alike, playing into the characteristics of the place, the potential for community and short-lived togetherness.
ONZIJN consists of two teams: the one team represent their theme through a single image, the other take these images as a point of departure and actively translate the themes for the WOW habitat.
