Monthly newsletter, March 2023

March 2023

We are proud to present the first edition of our monthly newsletters. In these newsletters there will be updates on the museum's exhibitions, events taking place and much more.


In February we proudly presented our exhibition ''UKRAINE. PEOPLE. COURAGE. POSTERS'' curated by Daria Lisenko at Design Museum Dedel.

The exhibition opening began with our museums chairman emphasising that an exhibition like this should not even be taking place, the war in Ukraine should not be happening. Putin’s war is unnecessary; causing irrevocable devastation, and we must all do our part to help the Ukrainian people. For the Design Museum Dedel this exhibition was a way of doing just that.

Yuri Lisenko, Counsellor at the Ukrainian embassy shared a few words with us at the opening and was presented with a poster from a contemporary Ukrainian artist. The curator of this exhibition, Daria Lisenko, spoke on the inspiration behind this exhibition, the powerful nature and long history of Ukraine poster design.

In curating this exhibition Lisenko dug through the museum's collection to showcase Ukrainian film posters from the 1920s. In conjunction with this she included posters from Ukrainian artists now a hundred years later. Contemporary artists such as Maksym Palenko, Oleksandr Grekhov, Nikita Titov, Borys Groh, Yuriy Zhuravel, and the Pictoric illustrator group.

We would like to know what you think of the exhibition. Have you visited yet? The museum is open from Wednesday until Sunday, 11:00 to 17:00 with entrance free for those who hold a Ukrainian passport.

The beloved posters of Piet van der Hem and Willy Sluiter are still on display on the first floor for you to also see!
