PAPERJAM was asked to coordinate the inner city part of the GEO—DESIGN: Junk exhibition by Design Academy Eindhoven and Van Abbemuseum during Dutch Design Week 2019. GEO—DESIGN: Junk is a ground breaking design-research exhibition on waste. From satellite graveyards to dead stock via the Great Pacific Garbage Patch. All That Is Solid Melts into Trash explores global systems of discarded things. This exhibition, produced in collaboration with the Van Abbemuseum, showcases eighteen thought-provoking projects by Design Academy Eindhoven alumni.

Nine projects will be shown in the Van Abbemuseum (until 17 November 2019) and, with the support of BIZ Eindhoven, nine projects will be shown during Dutch Design Week at various locations in the city centre – Rambam, HEMA, ING Bank, De Bijenkorf, Sissy-Boy, Hutspot, Vielgut, Deense Kroon and TigerLily.
