Due to the current measures and the rapid developments surrounding coronavirus, we would like to update you on how our hotel is dealing with the situation. Everyone’s health: that of you and your loved ones as well as that of our staff is of paramount importance.
Within walking distance of Hotel Central you will find the Design Museum Den Bosch. Here you will find modern art, especially contemporary visual art and design. The museum specialises in ceramics and jewellery.
We are surrounded by pictures: advertisements everywhere fight for our attention. But where posters used to stand still, nowadays we are increasingly drawn to moving images. The traditional graphic design on paper is gradually being replaced by motion design on screens. In the exhibition "The poster is dead", Design Museum Den Bosch presents the work of eight design agencies that play a role in the rise of digital advertising design in the outdoor space.
What does the future of the human body look like? In this exhibition, artists and designers explore the moral and technological boundaries of the body. Humans are improved, protected, made more attractive. This process has been going on for ages, but it has reached its zenith in light of current technological advances. ‘Bodydrift – Anatomies of the Future’ is about the recent history and future of our bodies. It gives an overview of the current state of affairs and presents a speculative exploration of the new human. Bart Hess and Harm Rensink create a spectacular exhibition design.
This summer, Design Museum Den Bosch presents the work of visionary designer, critic and activist Victor Papanek (1923-1998). His famous book Design for the Real World: Human Ecology and Social Change (1970) stands for a radical vision of designs in which sustainability and social justice are more important than consumption and commerce. The exhibition shows both a retrospective of his work and the way in which young designers are working with these themes more than ever.
