Presentation at KABK about my work
Aren’t we all part of the machine called society? Aren’t we captured by the illusion of endless possibilities? How will we survive after leaving the safe haven of the art academy?
The Interior Architecture & Furniture Design department is creating a platform for all graduated IAFD designers.
The Interior Architecture and Furniture Design department was founded in 1931 (then called Binnenhuis en Meubelconstructie) and over the years hundreds of students have graduated from it. This broad network of alumni has the potential to grow into a platform for knowledge exchange, a tool to intensify the relation amongst current students and alumni.
Starting this study year 2016-2017, IAFD aims at activating this network by organizing Alumni Events. We invite alumni to give lectures and workshops for our current students, and speak about their life after the academy. By doing so, we can strengthen the IAFD platform and create our own community. At the same time, the Alumni Events give IAFD alumni the opportunity to exchange ideas with peers about the design field.
