People in this generation are the children of the Baby Boomers. Generation Y is a demographic group that follows up Generation X. Born between 1980 and 2000 they are today's teens and youngsters. Generation Y feels that dreams can come true and responsibilities can be ignored.Dutch Design Hotel Artemis is willing to move with the times, in this constant moving world the technological developments can not be counted. How great would it be to see the world through the eyes if the future generation?
This spring Dutch Design Hotel Artemis exhibits the new Design & ARTemis expo 'Generation Y?'. Generation Y think they are entitled to it all and is characterised by ambitious, flexible, digital connected but also as narcissistic, insecure and always looking for attention. This generation works to pay the bills, is always searching for new experiences and is eco-friendly. But they are also not loyal to their employers, dependent on their parents for a long time and find it difficult to fulfil their obligations.
Every artist or designer is marked with the label 'Generation Y': this way they show the visitor their view on the world. What is their vision and how does this characterise their pieces?
Enter the discussion about the Generation Y stereotype created in this exhibition. Discuss your vision on Generation Y with Dutch Design Hotel Artemis, artists and designers and discover what everyone can learn from each other. Because future generations are not already there, they are created by previous generations. Follow the time line and be inspired by the free mind and vision of the next generation.
'Generation Y?' shows a rich variety of art, design and creative concepts created by Generation Y. Participants of different ages within Generation Y expose their work, so the exhibition represent the whole generation.
