The best graduation projects of academies in the Netherlands and Flanders 2006
graduation special presents the best graduation projects of all the academies
in the Netherlands and Flanders. The editors are members of Items’
permanent staff, and experts. They visited all the graduation exhibitions
of the art academies in the Netherlands and in Flanders to come to a first
selection of graduation projects.
The design project Copypaste History builds on the early 2006 election of the best 20th century Dutch design. However, we have entered the 21st century and an entire new generation of up-and-coming designers are busy making a name for themselves. In many cases, these designers are directly or indirectly building on the achievements of the 20th century. They sample and assemble as much as they like. There are tongue-in-cheek copycats and serious followers. And it is precisely this multifaceted process of building on tradition that Copypaste History is about.
Five young designers
from various disciplines are challenged to translate a Dutch design icon
of their choice through copy pasting into a new 21st century design. Participants
are Fons Schiedon (multimedia), Joline Jolink (fashion), Franke Elshout
(food design), Studio Ditte (product design) and Machine (graphic). On
the occasion of the project, a theme-specific essay written by critic
Timo de Rijk will be published.
