“We don’t see our work as art; we don’t see our work as making beautiful things. It is the result of social movement. It is not fashion or a special view of art. We try to establish our connection with the social situation in our work … The answers to our problems must be the questions: Why, how, when where, what?”

—     Paul Schuitema in the book ‘What is a designer’ by Norman Potter

The Van Eyck Summer Design Academy is a theory and practice based academic graphic design workshop under the guidance of Roosje Klap & Our Polite Society. Every day during this week, we will be working on a chapter for a publication in the renowned and well-equipped Charles Nypels Lab of the Van Eyck. There will be presentations by external visiting designers and curatorsas well as a daily Reading Group. The week will result in a publication and an exhibition.
Kyuha Shim (aka Q) joins the Summer Design Academy as a tutor. Q is a designer, researcher and PhD candidate in Information Experience Design at the Royal College of Art. He works in the integrative and interdisciplinary realm of art, design and technology, with particular interest in the language of systematic and playful patterns in design & computation. Central to his practice is the use of data as the primary medium in creating a complete, narrative system informed and driven by integrated processes of visualisation, fabrication and installation.
