Beschrijving van het evenement
Waag artist-in-residence Teresa van Twuijver, in collaboration with Waag's TextileLab Amsterdam, presents the exhibition HOPECHEST2090.

Over dit evenement

It is the year 2090. Textile is the most precious possession in a person’s lifetime. After the 2030 climate disasters, the western part of the Netherlands has disappeared under sea levels. A new Wadden island emerged and it’s called Zaankogerland. 

On the fictional Wadden island of Zaankogerland near Koog aan de Zaan (a Western area that lies higher than the rest of the Netherlands), residents have succeeded in producing a large part of their textiles themselves. HOPECHEST2090, a polder science fiction project, is the prototype of a Zaankoger textile collection consisting of clothing, table linen, kitchen linen, bath linen and rags. These textiles are sustainable, waste-free, environmentally friendly and largely produced on the island.

Together with TextileLab Amsterdam, designer Teresa van Twuijver researches the production and processing of textiles on the island of Zaankogerland in the year 2090. The research includes materials, designs, patterns, digital fabrication, handmade crafts and new manifestations of local dress. The project is about showing prototypes of the items that in 2090 are produced, worn and used on Zaankogerland and it explores the social and cultural impact of new technologies based on the values of open, fair and inclusive.

HOPECHEST2090 is a sample archive and style room of homemade, locally produced textiles. This new heritage is generated by digital technologies.  The exhibition HOPECHEST2090 is here to inform and inspire people about new and potential developments in textile and fashion.
