From 19 October 2013, the first day of the annual Dutch Design Week, Design Academy Eindhoven will be the guest of the Van Abbemuseum. In the exhibition 'Self Unself', Design Academy Eindhoven invites the visitor to explore the tensions between ‘I’ and ‘we’ in contemporary design. What is the role of the individual in the work of the latest generation of designers, and how do they value the collective? 'Self Unself' contains works by alumni, designers and artists related to Design Academy Eindhoven. Designers in the exhibition are amongst others Hella Jongerius, Erik Kessels, John Körmeling, Lucas Maassen, Bertjan Pot, Alicia Ongay Perez, Studio Orta, and Thonik. 'Self Unself' will be exhibited in ten rooms of the old building.
