Gabrielle Kennedy is an Amsterdam-based design journalist and editor. From 2009 to 2014 she was editor-in-chief of Design.nl, and from 2014 to 2017 was the in-house journalist at Design Academy Eindhoven. She has written about design for The Australian, The Japan Times, Singapore Straits Times, The Economist, POL Oxygen, Dezeen, Wallpaper, and Icon Magazine among others.
Christien Meindertsma defies all trends and at a time when design becomes more and more institutionalized she stays obstinately free and single, letting her instincts and personal experiences inform and guide her positions. So while her work is always political, it’s a modest form of politics removed from the swell of woke movements that struggle to truly dent the status quo.
Guillaume Désanges is an independent curator and notably in charge of La Verrière, the exhibition space for contemporary art attached to Fondation d'entreprise Hermès in Brussels. He has a reputation for putting on complex and difficult exhibitions packed with meaning and signification. In 2019 he started a series of cycles at the exhibition space, each one investigating special themes. Currently it is “Matters of Concern”.
