GASTGASTGEBER
August – September 2009

The philosophy of heimat was the guidance to curate a collection about Dutch Design

GastGastGeber was created on invitation of the Dutch Design Fashion and Architecture programme and was exhibited in ZOLLVEREIN, Germany. By formulating a question about the process and origin of Dutch design, Judith found inspiration in the concept of HEIMAT, to which people are bound by their birth and childhood and which highly affects a person’s identity. By bringing Dutch design products together and curating them into an exhibition and retail space, Judith explained the meaning of HEIMAT. Through storytelling, the heritage and DNA of Dutch design products was shown.
