Press feedback

„Die flüchtigen, flexiblen Objekte waren wie prähistorische Funde aufgereiht – mit scheinbar wissenschaftlichen Etiketten versehen, wie Exponate aus Material, das Tausende von Jahren überdauert hat – ein charmanter Kontrast konträrer Zeitbegriffe." PAGE 09.2010


„individuals were asked to make little sculptures of their own liking using the 'working materials' of gum made from an ancient process known in mexico long before the aztec empire.“


„Sich in diesem Sinne anregen und letztlich einfach auf andere Gedanken bringen lassen, kann man sich in Berlin an vielen Orten. Sich jedoch im Kunstkontext geschmacklich und visuell verführen lassen, kann man nicht alle Tage.“

If you're going to be in Berlin next week for DMY: International Design Festival, look for Materials Utopia at the Panatom Gallery, put together by Core contributor and material expert Aart van Bezooyen. Over four days, visitors are invited to transform natural gum – a super sustainable substance according to Aart – into tiny sculptures.

Supplementing the central exhibition, numerous satellite exhibitions in design institutions, museums and galleries take place throughout Berlin during the festival. Various studios will open their doors and give insights into the creative work processes.
