"Zandloper; The reputable hourglass figure from 1750 has inspired me to design a corset. The craft of corset making may be seen and appreciated again in the zeitgeist of 2015" – Tess van Zalinge
In January 2015 MOAM presented the fastest multidisciplinary exhibition ever called Generation 2015. Generation 2015 is a unique platform for 26 young creatives, from 3D art to graphic design and from photography to fashion. A raw reflection of the creative Zeitgeist of 2015.
Via their surnames, participants were coupled to a letter from the alphabet. This letter was the source of inspiration for each work and all the participants received absolute creative and artistic freedom. In this way you get a unique, personal vision of each participant and at the same time a diverse view of today’s creativity.
Generation 2015 is the fastest pop-up exhibition ever in the Netherlands, only to be visited for three hours in Amsterdam. Initiator Martijn Nekoui: “Not only the content, but also the time span of the exhibition reflects the current generation. They’re used to a fast-paced lifestyle, three hours can be seen as endless, but it is the right amount of time to showcase all the talents.”
