137 individual perspectives,
Engaging aspects of contemporary life
With the intent to transform our shared future.

During the Dutch Design Week, from 20-28 October, Design Academy Eindhoven will be organizing its annual Graduation Show. The name of this year’s exhibition is Up Close Wide Open and it will take place at the WitteDame building, home of the academy.
The show will offer a complete overview of the graduation projects made by no fewer than 128 recently graduated DAE Bachelors and Masters. Our graduates will be present and happy to shed more light on their projects.

Alongside the  individual graduation projects we will also be presenting a number of projects that have been realized in collaboration with the ‘Friends of the Academy’: NS, E.ON and Waterschap De Dommel.
In addition, the academy is offering a daily programme of lectures for a more in-depth reflection on the themes. Curators of the exhibition and the graduation catalogue are Strange Attractors Design, Ryan Pescatore Frisk and Catelijne van Middelkoop.
