        Sounds of  the Future

          Sounds of the Future is a residency programme for experimental music based in Denmark, with a focus on contemporary music and sound art. The visual identity and logo were designed by Studio Kader.

          The Sounds of the Future project, supported by the cultural development fund of central Jutland and organised by Sound Art Lab and SPOR Festival in Aarhus, aims to support and develop the sound art environment in the region by promoting collaborations and connections between various local cultural actors and offering a range of activities such as artist residencies, debates, workshops and performances on international platforms.
          The visual identity for Sounds of the Future is inspired by the Chladni Plate, a device that visualises sound vibration patterns by distributing particles across a surface. This reference visually embodies the intersection of sound and form, graphically representing the essence of experimental music. The aesthetic of the Chladni plate is translated into the design through the application of geometric and abstract patterns


        Masterplan / Land Art Flevoland

          Studio Kader is managing the project Masterplan / Land Art Flevoland in collaboration with Martine van Kampen, Land Art Flevoland.


              During the building of the Flevoland polder, the engineers and planners decided to mark the occasion through the realisation of a number of large-scale art works, situated on several locations. They opted for an art form that spoke to their imagination: Land Art. An art form popular in the United States in the seventies and introduced in the Netherlands through exhibitions such as Op Losse Schroeven (1969) in the Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam and Sonsbeek Buiten de Perken (1971) in Arnhem.
              The result is a collection of nine Land Art works by world-famous artists such as Robert Morris, Richard Serra and Daniel Libeskind.
              Now, 40 years after the first works were realised, we are working on the execution of the Masterplan Land Art Flevoland, in which we give an upgrade to some and impulse to all of the Land Art works in the collection. Next to managing the restoration of some of these works, we are also organise interviews with all of the artists of the collection. The work largely concerns land art as heritage and its preservation, but also involves activating the works by, for example, improving seating areas next to the works or publishing a magazine about the collection



            RMTxAKI

              Studio Kader designed the identity for the RMT x AKI group exhibition, which was held at the Rijksmuseum Twenthe from 22 June to 27 August. The exhibition showcased works by fourth-year students from the AKI art academy.




            DDW/2023 - Embassy of Safety
