Maartje de Winter
Maartje de Winter calls herself a 'handicapped research-based designer'. In her work, and from her perspective as a maker, she looks at topics such as identity and the act of expressing it, and she researches intersectional feminism and queer/crip theory. She is also active within the community of people with disablities. Maartje likes being in nature, beetles are her favourite insects and Jasmine is her favourite flavour of tea.
"I like to involve the personal into my detours in order to questions what it is that makes us who we are together with visitors".
_MVRDVHNI: The Living Archive of a Studio_
_MVRDVHNI: The Living Archive of a Studio _explores the archive of the renowned architectural firm MVRDV. The exhibition is designed as a 'living' and active work enviroment to showcase how the office is the place where ideas and projects move fluidly, back and forth, between present, past and future.
This multimedial presentation, located on the institute's sixth floor, overlooks one of MVRDV's much-discussed recent designs - the new Depot Boijman Van Beuningen. Based on three recurring themes - green, human, and dream - the exhibition highlights more than 400 projects from the studio's ever-growing archive. In addition, Het Nieuwe Instituut offers insights into the firm's working methods with drawings, sketches, models and other archive materials.
