Design duo Kranen/Gille can celebrate ten years of designing with their solo-exhibition 'The industrial character of Kranen/Gille'. About 40 pieces of their design, un-commissioned work and prototypes give the visitors an insight into the world of Kranen/Gille.
One of my favorite museums in the Netherlands is about to close its doors. After 16 years and many beautiful exhibitions the AAMU museum of contemporary Aboriginal art in Utrecht, has come to its final exhibition.
Right before the closing of the exhibition, my friend Katrien and I decided to pay a visit to 'Rik Wouters & het huiselijk utopia'(Rik Wouters & the private utopia) at the MoMu in Antwerp. A beautiful hommage to a painter who died 100 years ago.
The exhibit 'Over de grens' which means 'Crossing borders', at De Domijnen in Sittard features work of artists who are looking for connections with people from other cultures, seeking contact with and opening up towards others.
A couple of weeks ago I visited the Mies van der Rohe Pavilion in Barcelona. The pavilion still breaths a modern atmosphere, even though the design has almost been a hundred years old. The minimal, simple and transparent design combined with the beautiful materials that were used and the history of the project, makes this building an absolute must-see, even if you're just slightly interested in architecture or design!
