On Sunday 13 September, detour guide Erik Peters led us through the exhibition Atelier Nelly and Theo van Doesburg in a Sunday Stroll that focused on narratives. Who gets to (re)write their own story, and what role does art play in this? The alternative storylines under discussion will include the alter egos of Nelly van Doesburg, “the black lines of De Stijl”, the tesseract and the vanished cube.
Erik is the newest member of the detour team. He’s a designer, researcher and musician who is mainly interested in understanding and deconstructing the systems of society on a political, ecological, social or technological level. His practice is focused on speculative design, combining research and ficition.
“As a designer, I create space where we can discuss and reflect. I question, visualise, speculate, dream, reflect, connect, build and offer alternatives.”
