“What’s New?!” Since that question is asked so often, Maarten Baas wanted to find out what “New” actually is. “But, that’s not so easy because it’s all relative!”, says the designer. “In the end, I couldn’t tell the difference between a second and a century or a short hype and an everlasting change. But, I’m pretty sure I made something “new” here!”
In collaboration with the Groninger Museum, Baas explores two concepts in which space and time are placed in a different perspective. With an extremely time consuming production technique and a plot of 120 hectares (approximately 200 football fields), Baas will again, this year, make an unexpected and obviously, very new move.
The exhibition New! Newer! Newest! is on display until April 18th in Milan at via Savona 33 (Zona Tortona).
