TEMPORARY MUSEUM is a new, mobile exhibit concept for urban landscapes in development, specially focused on people age 4 and up. This summer Temporary Museum will touch down in one of the most distinct vacant office buildings of the Netherlands: the former Shell tower (Tower overhoeks) on the bank of the Amsterdam IJ. Per the 29th of June till the 23rd of September 2012 Temporary Museum will present an exhibition here, with remarkable art and design objects that refer to the culture of sustainism. Not only the practicality of everyday sustainability (such as energy efficiency and sorting waste) will be on display, sustainability will also be placed in the context of the human imagination.
For example think of a knitting machine that runs on wind energy by Merel Karhof, Dutch still-life paintings made of recycled plastic by Richard Kuiper and the speculative research by Arne Hendriks on shrinking the human race to solve the energy and food issues of the world.
