Museum door de Stad

Museum door de stad travels for 3 years through the city with installations inspired by the culture historic collection of Eindhoven Museum. In 2018 5 designers will get to work with the themes past, present and future of our food. The installations can be seen during the Dutch Design Week in Sectie-C and during the Fijne Feestdagen Festival in the Warehouse of innovation.

Fijne Feestdagen Festival

Museum door de stad is traveling to the Warehuis of Innovation right in the centre of Eindhoven. Of course the installations of Mies Loogman, Jelle Mastenbroek & Daniël de Bruin, Lucas Maassen & Hossie, Zoë Jacobs and Chloé Rutzerveld are going to be there, but you can also join in with the workshops by Lucas & Hossie, Zoë and Chloé. Keep an eye on the website for the details!

Beeldenstorm (iconoclasm)

Lucas Maasen and Hossie are presenting the vrijgieterij during the secret life of materials, from the 10th of November until the 9th of December. The project is a way to update the collection and a way to preserve the cultural heritage for the future. See more information on the website.

Making Loerie

Chloé Rutzerveld invites her guests to try and make their own coffee of the future, Rogge-coffee! They could experiment with the surrogate coffee and experience how the small changes in preparation could affect the taste and aroma! Photo’s: Wouter van der Wal

Subjective Canon of Eindhoven

Museum door de stad is going to travel through Eindhoven for three years and meanwhile they gather subjective data from the residents in the city. This information shapes the subjective canon of Eindhoven, a clear picture of what her residents are thinking, doing, feeling and their opinions. Drop by at the Museum door de Stad and let us know your opinions. Photo’s: Max Kneefel

Loerie Lab

Chloé Rutzerveld has taken the example of the surrogate coffee made by poor farmers from Eindhoven and made her own out of rye. It isn’t instant coffee, but filtered coffee. Will this be a healthy and sustainable alternative and maybe the coffee of the future? Photo’s: Max Kneefel

Vrijgieterij (foundry)

Lucas Maasen and Hossie make molds by hand with a few objects from the collection for the vrijgieterij. It’s a metaphor for the everyday objects in the collection, for example coffee cups, mugs and plates. Photo’s: Max Kneefel

Zoë Jacobs - How do we sit to eat?

It is no surprise anymore that our food effects our bodies growth. What does our current food schedule look like and what does it mean for the size of our body?

Museum through You

You can also visit Museum door de Stad at the mall Heuvel, around the corner of the Ten Hagestraat! On this chalkboard you can write for example how tall you are and what you love to eat.

ED shares our plans

Eindhovens Dagblad gives director Ward Rennen the stage to tell out plans for Museum door de Stad: “I hope this project shows a better image of how Eindhoven came to be. There has been a lot of talking about the focus point technic, design and knowledge, but only a small hand of people knows where it comes from. That’s what we want to make clear with Museum door de Stad.”

How do you eat your food?

Zoë Jacobs would love to know how you eat! Make a lifelong imprint of yourself or draw your own body outline. Zoë has let herself become inspired by the diversity of chairs from the Eindhoven Museum collection. Photo’s: Max Kneefel


Chloé Rutzerveld - Loerie Lab

Farmers from Eindhoven were very poor, crops had a rough time growing because of the chapped sandy soil of the farmland of Eindhoven, but coffee beans were very expensive. The farmers used to make substitute coffee from burnt peas, old grain or chicory
