WHAT IS SALON/BJ?


SALON/BJ: Breaking down the walls

With each new edition, SALON/ aspires to connect their existing network to new participants; this time to a creative network in Beijing. Far beyond traditional oppositions as between centre and periphery, craft and concept, design, fashion, art and commerce and autonomy, the project primarily addresses how new generations of artists and designers work (together) and give expression to their ideas in collaboration with the habitants, craftsmen and creative industry of Dashilar Hutong during BJDW.

During BJDW 2013, SALON/ will re-locate and domiciliate designers from Amsterdam and Beijing for 10 days in Dashilar where they will “break down the walls” between the disciplines, the creator and the spectator, the neighbourhood and the city. They will break down the differences between cultures by producing “in situ” installations and workshops and creating the possibility to participate among the designers and artists.

SALON/BJ will innovate and create the process of collaboration and a SALON/route through Dashilar, a realtime experience and awareness of Design goes Dutch and will emphasize on the importance of co-operation and collaboration. SALON/BJ will inspire and engage a dialogue and reflection in between the participants, the locations, site-specific workshop/installations, the public and the inhabitants.

SALON/BJ is generously supported by the City of Amsterdam and Creative Industries Fund NL.
