Motto Storefront events update.

Metahaven Talk: Saturday, July 3rd, 2pm

Metahaven (Vinca Kruk, Daniel van der Velden) is a design studio engaging the field of visual identity. From research projects, such as the Sealand Identity Project (2004), Museum of Conflict (2006), and Quaero (2007), the group has moved into installations and critical design projects such as Affiche Frontière (CAPC musée d’art contemporain de Bordeaux, 2008) and Stadtstaat (Künstlerhaus Stuttgart and Casco Utrecht). Its recent book, Uncorporate Identity (Lars Müller Publishers, 2010), matches design with inquiries on globalization and network society. Metahaven’s work was included in group exhibitions like Forms of Inquiry (Architectural Association, London, 2007, cat.) and On Purpose – Design Concepts (Arnolfini, Bristol, 2008). Upcoming projects include a contribution to Manifesta 8 in Murcia, Spain (opening October 2010) and to Graphic Design Worlds at Triennale Design Museum in Milan (2011). Metahaven’s commissioners include the Van Abbemuseum, Valiz Publishers, e-flux Journal, Premsela Foundation and Bureau Europa. Metahaven lectures regularly, and teaches at Yale University, New Haven, the Design Academy, Eindhoven, and the Sandberg Institute, Amsterdam.
