Finissage: Deconstructing Systems

Celebrating the unmaking of a Car

24 Jul 2016

From July 15 till 24 artists Olivier Oosterbaan and Victor Engbers are completely taking apart a Fiat Panda in 10 days. By deconstructing a car in a public space rather than in a garage, they want to trigger an open discussion about the possibilities of dissecting complex objects and systems.

Print the Future

During the week, Print the Future’s Klara van Duijkeren and Vincent Schipper have observed the action of unmaking a car, and have mirrored it by preparing a publication in the same time-frame. We don’t know yet what it will be: it can be a magazine, a poster, a set of instruction cards. We’ll talk with Klara and Vincent about their choices, and about using printed matter as a record.
