State of Unsettlement (2017 - ongoing)
The project State of Unsettlement is set up as a design-research platform to explore and discuss the political climate and the impact of design in times of Brexit. Made possible by Creative Industries Fund NL, initiators and designers Anne Vaandrager, Lisa Mandemaker and Judith van den Boom invite makers, designers and researchers from the British and Dutch practice to investigate the Brexit negotiations. They aim to explore a connected and collaborative inventiveness and resourcefulness to the concept of nationhood and citizenship, rather than highlighting the current geographic division between The Netherlands and United Kingdom. State of Unsettlement creates a ground to stimulate international collaboration, leading towards new forms of ecologies and interpretations of living and working in uncertain times.
