2014, the Royal Academy of Art, The Hague @ Salone del Mobile, Milan
curated by Claudia Linders, Marie Ilse Bourlanges & Elena Khurtova
BACK STAGE ON STAGE, the presentation of the Royal Academy of Art, The Hague, (KABK) was a great success attracting 35.000 visitors at the renowned design fair Salone Internazionale del Mobile, Milan.
This year’s edition of the Salone was held from 8 to 13 April 2014. With BACK STAGE ON STAGE, the Royal Academy of Art literally put the creative process in the limelight: the presentation consisted of a continuous program of performances and happenings, whereby drafts and products were created, shared, shown and dismantled on stage! The trans-disciplinary program gave room to all artistic disciplines in design and fine art.
BACK STAGE ON STAGE has been curated by Claudia Linders, Marie Ilse Bourlanges & Elena Khurtova, designed and realised by students of the Interior Architecture and Furniture Design department under the direction of Barend Koolhaas: Bert Bouwman, Marjolein de Groot, Rense Jansen, Róman Kienjet, Anne Kranenborg en Bert Spolders.
