    We are hungry for sexuality!

    For this Dutch Design Week, Joes + Manon, a social design studio based in Eindhoven, put sexuality on the menu. Literally. They host a series of experience dinners in which they question norms and behavior in the context of sexuality.

    We hebben trek in seksualiteit!

    Dates: 24 – 27 Oct
    Time: 19:00 – 21:30
    Registration: €36,43

    Every day is a sexual day, and we are not only talking about sex here. Our entire society is peppered with (unwritten) rules concerning love, body image, relationships, intimacy, gender identity and reproduction.

    For this Dutch Design Week, Eindhoven based social design studio Joes+Manon put sexuality on the menu. They host a series of experience dinners in which they question norms and behavior in the context of sexuality.

    Joes+Manon will serve sexual challenges and opportunities. As dinner guest you can expect an interactive experience that facilitates the conversation about the topics in an original and surprisingly delicious way. The orgasm gap will be cut away, taboos will be spiced up and stereotypes will be made into pulp.

    You will sit at the table with designers, ambitious pioneers and people who deal with sexuality everyday (which means basically everybody). By tasting sexuality together, Joes+Manon promise sparking conversations, exciting connections and beautiful opportunities.

    The experience dinners show the constructive and positive role of design in debating difficult and intimate subjects. The dinner is designed in close collaboration with Rutgers, the Dutch authority on research & sexuality.

    Come dine with us and go home with a full belly of inspiration, knowledge, connections, and tasty food.

    Homo Sensorium
    Joes+Manon’s design dinners are part of the Homo Sensorium program during Dutch Design Week in Natlab. With a mix of experiments, workshops, talks, dinners, performances, guided tours, a brainwave wedding lab and films, Homo Sensorium investigates the future of our technologically mediated body.

    The program is a collaboration initiated by Baltan Laboratories with Broet and Natlab. Homo Sensorium at DDW is part of a multi-year trajectory developed by Baltan Laboratories and kindly supported by Stimuleringsfonds Creatieve Industrie, Stichting Cultuur Eindhoven and Provincie Noord-Brabant.
