35.000 visitors for the Royal Academy of Art, The Hague during the Salone del Mobile

BACK STAGE ON STAGE, the presentation of the Royal Academy of Art, The Hague, (KABK) was a great success attracting 35.000 visitors at the renowned design fair Salone Internazionale del Mobile, Milan. This year’s edition of the Salone was held from 8 to 13 April 2014. With BACK STAGE ON STAGE The Royal Academy of Art literally put the creative process in the limelight: the presentation consisted of a continuous programme of performances and happenings, whereby drafts and products were created, shared, shown and dismantled on stage! The trans-disciplinary programme gave room to all artistic disciplines in design and fine art.
The exhibition’s distinctive character was widely recognized. A record number of 35.000 visitors attended the presentation, including design critics, press and the wider international public. On Tuesday 8 April, the Dutch minister for Education, Culture and Science Jet Bussenmaker and her delegation visited the exhibition. They were guided through the show by the Academy’s director Marieke Schoenmakers and curator Claudia Linders and spoke with students and alumni.
One of the exhibition’s highlights was the work by Martijn Rigters, alumnus Interior Architecture and Furniture Design. With his project CUTTING EDGE he developed a new production technique and presented his polystyrenecutted sofas. Also notable was the work BIOMIMICRY 3D PRINTED SOFT SEATING by Lilian van Daal, alumnus of Industrial Design (post graduate). She graduated with her research on 3D printed softseatig using forms and structures inspired by nature. COEXIST, a collection of autonomous architectural casts of the Academy’s building by Nynke Koster was widely noted by press, fellow designers and public. Also Catinka Kersten’s animal sculptures LOOKS LIKE I OWN YOU NOW – FOUR HARES and her performances caught the visitors’ attention.
The exhibition staged a daily programme of performances. Amongst them, POINTES by Ymke Vertelman,student Interior Architecture and Furniture Design. Here, two dancers playfully made music by dancing on specially designed soundbox. Designer Anouk van Klaveren’s PROJECT 000 004 HYPERTRICHOSIS 2.0 similarly had a strong performative character. Visitors could donate their hair for a growing collection hand-made bow ties.
BACK STAGE ON STAGE is developed under the supervision of curator Claudia Linders and co-curators Marie Ilse Bourlanges and Elena Khurtova. The exhibition has been designed and realised by students of the Interior Architecture and Furniture Design department under the direction of Barend Koolhaas: Bert Bouwman, Marjolein de Groot, Rense Jansen, Róman Kienjet,
Anne Kranenborg en Bert Spolders.
