MAFAD - Graduation Expo 2017

Jessica den Hartog
From Thursday 6 July to Tuesday the 11th, MAFAD (Maastricht Academy of Fine Arts and Design) presented their newest graduates, The class of 2017.
With this exhibition they have mixed the departments, previewing the new Design curriculum and offering a fresh view into MAFAD's talent. 

About the new MAFAD curriculum: MAFAD is seeking for a new generation of idealistic and socially engaged students viewing society and the existing systems with a critical eye. Inspired by leading innovators, a symbiotic and sustainable image has emerged in which life is consciously expressed in terms of a new identity. The areas of Body, Object and Material become more personally oriented towards society, the community. They research new materials and techniques of our age and the future. It’s a time that is inciting young designers like our students to innovate and to redefine what Body, Object and Material can be. A global social plea for freedom, self-expression and engagement?

MAFAD offers both an applied and an autonomous program, individually or in collective practices. Our students explore the challenge in finding the right tools to translate an idea into material. The development of new technologies and a grasp of the importance of sustainability are values that drive students and cause them to expand the borders of the traditional systems. With their innovative solutions and fresh designs, their generation has arrived at the interface between Design and Applied Arts embracing the crafts.
