- EXPERIMENTAL JETSET
Experimental Jetset is an Amsterdam-based graphic design studio founded in 1997 by Marieke Stolk, Erwin Brinkers and Danny van den Dungen. Focusing on printed matter and site-specific installations, Experimental Jetset have worked on projects for a wide variety of institutes, including Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam, Centre Pompidou, Dutch Post Group and Whitney Museum of American Art.
Their work has been featured in group exhibitions such as 'Graphic Design: Now in Production' (Walker Art Center, 2011) and 'Ecstatic Alphabets / Heaps of Language' (MoMA, 2012). Solo exhibitions include 'Kelly 1:1' (Casco Projects, 2002) and 'Two or Three Things I Know About Provo' (W139, 2011 / Moravian Gallery, 2012).
In 2007, a large selection of printed matter by Experimental Jetset was acquired by the Museum of Modern Art (New York). Other institutes that have collected work by Experimental Jetset include Stedelijk Museum (Amsterdam), SFMOMA (San Francisco), Art Institute of Chicago (Chicago), Museum für Gestaltung (Zürich), Centre National des Arts Plastiques (Paris), and Cooper Hewitt (New York).
In 2015, Roma Publications (Amsterdam) released a monograph titled 'Statement and Counter-Statement: Notes on Experimental Jetset', featuring essays by Linda van Deursen, Mark Owens, Ian Svenonius and Jon Sueda.
