F.A.T. GOLD

Celebrating more than five years of thug life, pop culture, and R&D, the renegade art organization known as the Free Art & Technology Lab, or F.A.T. Lab, is going GOLD. F.A.T. GOLD, that is. In spring they celebrated their first five year anniversary at Eyebeam in New York, curated by Lindsay Howard, this fall they land in Europe at MU in Eindhoven.

For a full schedule of F.A.T. GOLD events between November 11 and 16 take a look at www.mu.nl or www.baltanlaboratories.org

In recognition of the five-year anniversary, F.A.T. GOLD Europe will launch a new book co-published by Link Editions and MU, edited by Domenico Quaranta and Geraldine Juarez, entitled F.A.T. MANUAL.  The instructional book features a selection of works from F.A.T. Lab’s history, all of which encourage DIY entrepreneurship, open source, and activism.  

Design Debates

Eindhoven strives to be the Design Capital of Europe. These ambitions make sense, with a flourishing design network, impressive design and art galleries, a smart and creative region and of course the world famous Dutch Design Week.
A Design Capital needs a platform to discuss, feed the design climate, to cross boundaries with other disciplines and of course connect all players (and players-to-be) within the field. Therefore Eindhoven-based cultural and educational institutions Design Academy Eindhoven, MU, The New Institute, Capital D founded the Design Debates platform. The platform is supported by critical friends: Baltan Laboratories, Alice, Capital D. Every month Design Debates Eindhoven will host an afternoon debate at the Designhuis in Eindhoven.
