Brainport Capital D Jo Meesters

Following the successful trade mission to Istanbul in September 2011, Capital D organizes a trade mission to Munich. The mission will take place from Tuesday the 7th till Thursday the 9th of February. Similar to the trade mission in Istanbul, this mission is organized around the exhibition Made in Brainport. Made In Brainport exhibition represents a substantial part of the Munich Creative Business Week. The program consists of lectures, excursions, company visits and networking opportunities.

Due to the development of the creative economy, our social values and personal & professional relationships are changing. The 21st century demands a strong swarm society network for Brainport to present itself worldwide as the perfect location for innovative companies, national cultural facilities, knowledge centres, educational institutes and strong European economical clusters.

Zuzanna Skalska (VanBerlo design), curator of the fifth Made in Brainport exhibition, designed a new Brainport presentation based on the ‘Six degrees of Separation’. The top sectors in Brainport are: Hightech materials, Food, Automotive, Home, Care and Energy. These six top sectors are connected through the themes of Farming, Wellbeing, Technology, Environment, Craft and Local. These themes are divided into rational and emotional zones, which are illustrated by products, samples, movies and interactive technology that represent design companies, manufacturers, suppliers, brands, technology centres and education in Brainport.

Studio Jo Meesters' project PULP and the short film Die Ordnung is part of the theme Craft.
