June 1 - June 30
MU | De Witte Dame
A relay farewell to The Witte Dame
After nearly sixteen years of MU in our location at De Witte Dame, it is time to move on. We have become young grownups at this location, and at our new location in Strijp S, we will MUtate further. But De Witte Dame deserves a special farewell, so during the last five months of MU | De Witte Dame we will show a special “relay” group exhibition .
For MUtate we invite five artists/artist collectives with roots and/or links to Eindhoven to take over the MU space, each for one month. From February to the end of June, they will each have the opportunity to make a big statement within which they seamlessly build upon each others works in space and time.
The audience is welcome to walk in and see how the installations are growing, and periodically there will be big parties. When exactly? That’s up in the air, floating around Facebook and is whispered on the MU website.
MUtate No.5 La Bolleur
Let there be light
Opening: Saturday June 14, 8pm
Special program on Friday June 27, 10pm (closing party)
La Bolleur is a renowned multidisciplinary design collective from Eindhoven that has moved its headquarters to Amsterdam. LaBo, with their outlandish products, installations and events, always manages to connect with a broad and diverse audience. With 'Let there be Light' La Bolleur takes us back in time. Before MU was established in this old Philips factory, the space was used as a manufacturing facility for radio tubes and light bulbs. La Bolleur, as our finalist, takes the space back to its original purpose and sets up a new production line. This old factory mutates back to producing lighting before MU definitively turns off the lights.
