MUtate No.3 KNOL | Out of Office

The flexible work space experiment

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. 3 KNOL | Out of Office

In April, we opened the ideal flexible workspace in MU | Witte Dame that suits the work ethic of the twenty-first century called Out of Office. Or so it seemed. In a month's time, KNOL ontwerp transformed this space from a place with swings, a cuddly office-rabbit and a workbed to dream away in, into a place with a tight grid of gray cubicle offices and strict rules.
The flex workers were unaware that they were part of this socio-architectural experiment that the hype surrounding the New Working denounces. From Out of Office, we went back to just Office and we wondered what really "works"?

OddOne made a video where you can see the transformation, and KNOL explains.
