Guy Königstein – Hundred Years

Date: 08/05/2023

Time: 17:00 -17:50

Location: H401

Guy Königstein is an artist of Israeli origin, living in the Netherlands since 2007. He studied at the Design Academy Eindhoven and obtained a master degree in applied arts from the Sandberg Institute Amsterdam. Excavating through time and space, he uses image, material, form and story as means of unpacking entanglements, performing otherness and appreciating mixed feelings. 

About his workshop:

Provided with a stencil, old objects, spray paint and a blank sheet of paper, participants are invited to create a commemorative poster in memory of an imagined future event. Which two-dimensional motives would emerge out of the three-dimensional objects, and what can they symbolise? How are we to remember, that which had not yet taken place?
