Lecture Joana Meroz on 'The idea of Dutch Design' October 5
In the exhibition 'Vroeg Droog' not only a selection of top pieces from the museum's collection is shown. The exhibition also questions the definition of 'Dutch Design'. For what does the term mean? And who defines that?

During 'Droge Donderdag' on Thursday October 5, Joana Meroz (PhD candidate Design Cultures) will give a lecture on this topic. In the 1990s, the notion of ‘Dutch design’ came to be almost exclusively associated with ‘Droog Design’ – that is to say: with experimental design that supposedly embodies and reflects a ‘typically Dutch’ national identity. This lecture explores the emergence of the idea that Dutch design signifies typically Dutch avant-garde design by situating it in terms of previous design developments in the Netherlands and abroad.

The lecture will start at 19.15 h and will end around 19.45 h. Afterwards, you are most welcome to visit the exhibition and have a drink in Museumcafé Centraal.

Please note! This lecture will be given in English.
