3235 INDUSTRIOUS|artefacts, the evolution of crafts, 2011


Guest curators Rianne Makkink and Jurgen Bey address the evolution of production processes and small industries through the work of Dutch and international designers.

Industrial developments are shown along the lines of the Zuiderzee history and extends itself to current representations of the production process. The work is grouped around three thematic sections: local resources, industrial processes and imaginative hybrid objects. This exhibition draws on the Museum’s historic collection complemented with inventive machines by young designers. This interaction between past and present-day expressions of design, illustrates how design affects every day life.

The Zuiderzee Museum in Enkhuizen is oriented toward art, culture and heritage of the former Zuiderzee area and the IJsselmeer area. Communities, crafts and water play a central role in the Museum’s many exhibitions.
