Designing the Social is an exhibition exploring 100 years of new and different forms of living together in the Netherlands. Designers, researchers and curators have chosen and (re)interpreted pieces from heritage collections and archives in order to tell a variety stories about a century of social design. The question is always the same: how has design contributed to new worldviews, new forms of living, working and communication, and to a society in which we all have the means to shape our own ideas about the social?

“I like to mix different forms of artistic expression to make people look at the world in a slightly different way.”
