What makes a house a home? The _Temporary House of Home _exhibition is a labyrinth of rooms, each one with a different answer to this question. During the coronavirus pandemic, our 'homes' have become offices, classrooms and restaurants, as well as our safe havens. The exhibition explores these and other developments in domestic design.
"I want to stir up visitors' sense of wonder and let them see things from a different perspective, bringing them into contact with new realms of experiences."
As a designer and artist from Rotterdam, Maurik Stomps focuses on the public domain in his work. Who owns the city? And to what degree can an individual add to this? The questioning and researching of (public) space is also something he infuses into his detours.
His favourite things are organising small events in his home, the sunset from his window and gardening.
