Re-Out of Storage into ‘Couleur Radicaal’

A re-use of the structural elements of the Out of Storage furniture and wall & base system.

Couleur Radicaal

In the exhibition titled Couleur Radicaal, a parallel event of Manifesta 9, Marres Projects and SCHUNCK* explore how the universalist principles of modernism have influenced local developments, using ‘Heerlen’ as case study. Since the 20th century, the idea of avant-garde played an explicit role in Heerlen, a city with a self-image composed of concepts as innovative, enterprising and pioneering.
