Something terrible should happen

Jan Van Eyck Academie, From 5th to 7th March 2020, Maastricht.

During Jan Van Eyck Academie Open Studios 2020 in Maastricht, we’ve been invited by Erica Petrillo and Martin Groch to participate in the collaborative project “Something terrible should happen”, taking care of the design and spatial setting. The area, divided into two different spaces, was a place for collective exchanges, a bar, and a massive bedroom, hosting parties, talks, performances, and the works of residents.
