ArtEZ Institute of the Arts Zwolle chose for an Academy-wide presentation of its graduating students in 2015. As curator and project leader Eloi Koster was asked to take away all boundaries to meet, for the eighty students and the public.
In dialoque with the nine departments Eloi started with the conviction that meeting is essential. Artists and designers are not only able to look beyond their own discipline, it is their objective in society to play a critical yet unifying role.
Three vacant shops in the heart of the old centre of Zwolle were transformed into exhibition areas totaling 2100 square meters which connected with each other and the public. These finals are the foundation for further cooperation between ArtEZ and the city of Zwolle. Preparation for the finals of 2016 are now in progress.
