NEXT UP by Jeroen Junte: Dutch design by an involved post crisis generation.

For this Kazerne exhibition, guest curator Jeroen Junte selected an overview of the latest generation of Dutch designers. Featuring almost 200 works by over 60 designers – including Marjan van Aubel, Teresa van Dongen, Dave Hakkens, Dirk van der Kooij, Arnout Meijer, Aliki van der Kruijs, Lex Pott, Thomas Vailly & Laura Lynn Jansen, Sander Wassink and Jolan van der Wiel – the exhibition is the first overview of the generation that came of age during the credit crunch. Junte: “The engagement and open-mindedness of these young designers is remarkable. They think in terms of opportunities and solutions rather than problems and obstacles.”

NEXT UP is the world’s first exhibition presenting the entire spectrum of post-crisis design. This new generation of designers elaborates on the inquisitive, critical attitude of Dutch design, while at the same time striving to contribute positively to social issues. These engaged designers don’t just ask questions, they also look for answers. They deploy instinct and intuition just as much as conceptual exploration and a critical attitude. They are both thinkers and doers.
