Scarcity in Rotterdam

Discursive Programme Alongside the Designing Scarcity Exhibition

Het Nieuwe Instituut organizes a discursive programme around the exhibition Designing Scarcity and an educational activity.

Curator Jan Boelen will talk with three Rotterdam designers represented in the exhibition Designing Scarcity. C├ęsare Peeren of Superuse Studios, Joep van Lieshout of Atelier Van Lieshout and Digna Kossen of Foodcurators approach the concept of scarcity in individual ways arising from their different disciplines. What unites them is their refusal to view scarcity as a hindrance to creativity. How do they harness it as a point of departure and source of inspiration for their work and research?
