Experimental Jetset
Marieke Stolk, Erwin Brinkers, and Danny van den Dungen

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 (and describing their methodology as “turning language into objects”). Experimental Jetset have worked on projects for Stedelijk Museum CS (SMCS), Purple Institute, Centre Pompidou, Dutch Post Group (PTT, KPN, TPG, TNT, PostNL), Réunion des Musées Nationaux (RMN), Le Cent Quatre (104), De Theatercompagnie (DTC), Musée d’Art Contemporain de Bordeaux (CAPC), Bureau Europa (NAiM), and the 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, Utrecht, 2002) and ‘Two or Three Things I Know About Provo’ (W139, Amsterdam, 2011).

In 2007, a large selection of work by Experimental Jetset was acquired by the Museum of Modern Art (NYC), for inclusion in the MoMA permanent collection. Members of Experimental Jetset have been teaching at the Gerrit Rietveld Academie (between 2000 and 2010, and in 2013/2014), and are currently teaching at the Werkplaats Typografie (Arnhem).
