DDW 2020 – True Matter

By 18-10-2020

During Dutch Design Week 2020, Dutch Design Daily shows a live activity on location every day, today the exhibition True Matter of Dutch Invertuals Academy.

Twenty-two young design professionals from all around the world joined the first Dutch Invertuals Academy this summer, exploring the theme ‘True Matter’. Experienced designers from the Invertuals network guided participants through this inspiring journey by sharing their knowledge in a wide range of workshops, lectures and meetings. During Dutch Design Week 2020 the processes and results of this intensive six-week program are presented.

‘True Matter’ is an expression of the global shift from a careless to a caring attitude. The participants were challenged to work with raw materials from their local context and to play with their surroundings. Not only in terms of resources but also in terms of techniques, craftsmanship, politics and traditions. Because designers joined from Colombia to Israel and from Thailand to Chile, the exhibition sheds light on a large diversity of local identities and gives us insight into what truly matters globally.
