The European Ceramic Workcenter (.ekwc) in the Netherlands regards itself as an international workshop facility and provides designers, artists and architects with the opportunity to carry out technical and artistic experiments using ceramics and tiles as materials.
Participants are selected annually on the basis of a public application, a competition for art graduates, or by invitation. More information is available at www.ekwc.nl.
In the exhibition which has ended recently, “Brick: the Exhibition”, the results of such a workshop are on display. Sixteen international participants from the fields of architecture, design and art had set themselves the aim of developing a new type of brick.
