Open Set is an independent platform that promotes design and art practice as social and political interaction.
Our organisation began as a Dutch Design summer school in 2012 and has grown to include a broad spectrum of year-round activities.
Devised to enrich an active studio practice or ongoing education, our programmes are aimed at makers and thinkers
that evaluate or re-affirm their operating methods and positions in the professional landscape, and
who seek a deeper understanding of emergent discourses, and those who want to take their work in new, unexpected directions.
The Open Set learning environment is site-specific, intimate, non-competitive and peer-led. We are committed to openness toward diverse literacies, visual rhetorics and traditions, and personal backgrounds. Open Set is a space that resists the illusion of objectivity or superiority of any knowledge, method, form of argumentation or aesthetics.
