Following the success of ‘The Fat Pony’, the Fontys Academy of Art, Communication and Design Tilburg will present another innovative and critical project during this year’s Dutch Design Week.

Since 1 September, third-year students of ArtCoDe have taken up residence in their new location at the Stadhuisplein in Eindhoven: Wall Street. Together with the initiators of Wall Street – which is Eindhoven’s new financial centre by the way – they started a practical research into alternative economic models and innovative means of value creation.

Free Money?

The economy as we know it today is a myth created by economists (with all ensuing consequences). An intensive programme with workshops by Lucas Maassen, Jelle Mastenbroek, Helmut Smits and Helen Burger explores what happens when designers with little economic expertise tackle the economy anyway.

By designing alternative income models the project not only investigates the economy at large, it also closely examines the designers’ own practice. What is the role of the designer – often framed as being a problem solver – when they are working in an economical system that basically creates its own problems over and over again?

The results of this research are being presented during DDW. For ten days, exhibition and performance blend with the chance to get some food and drinks at Crédit Fontys.

Participating third-year ArtCoDe students: Maaike de Haard, Jesper Wijnhoven, Laura Limburg, Claudia Attevelt, Koen van der Biezen, Feline Schoofs, Saskia van den Berg, Lieselotte Pennings, Lonneke Frencken

Professors: Lucas Maassen, Philip Stroomberg
