About this artwork

Erwin Brinkers, Marieke Stolk, and Danny van Dungen—the founding principals of Amsterdam-based Experimental Jetset—are best known for a body of posters produced for the NAiM/Bureau Europa. Included here is a design for Edible City (2007), an exhibition that explored the influence that food production has on architecture and urbanism. The poster features a collage made from candy wrappers in the shape of the city of Maastricht. The posters for the 2007 exhibition Jean Prouvé: The Poetics of the Technical Objectdirectly reference the perforated aluminum sidings that have come to define much of Prouvé’s work. On the poster for the exhibition Rien ne va plus (No Further Bets) (2009), red and black type fills the page, cutting across the white background in a visual reference to “crashing stock markets and collapsing buildings.”
