1 Jun – 3 Jun 2018   /   Exhibition@Nest

Festival, i.c.w. Satellietgroep

Festival Designkwartier brings together designers and curious visitors at a 3-day design event in and around the Zeeheldenkwartier district of The Hague. Surprising routes lead you along places where you can meet designers and talk to each other about their designs and the stories behind them.

For more information, please visit the website of Festival Designkwartier.



The human desire to understand abstractions leads to new inventions, critical research and a poetic contemplation of our environment. In the midst of art and design, in the specially designed exhibition for Festival Designkwartier, Uptime is dedicated to makers who question current systems of thought and who allow collective truths to falter, because the future demands radically different systems.

In a series of lectures, interviews and interventions, designers and artists enter into discussions with scientists. After each programme component there is room for questions and debate.
