STRP Festival 2020

EXPO, Scenarios & Events

STRP Festival 2020 will take place from 2 to 5 April and consists of an international expo, an extensive STRP Scenario program with many speakers, an educational program and a varied music and performance program in the evenings, in collaboration with five new program partners: EMOVES, Muziekgebouw Eindhoven, PLASMA & JaJaJaNeeNeeNee.

DOMUSDELA, in the heart of Eindhoven, is the new main location for STRP festival 2020. This is where you will be able to visit the exhibition and join the STRP Scenarios. The music and performance program will take place in the evenings in various (to be announced) locations.

Program STRP 2020

During STRP Festival 2020 we imagine a future in which humans are no longer a dominating factor for life on Earth. We – humans – have a tendency to place ourselves in the center of the universe and to behave as superior to nature, plant, animal, and thing. But what if we were no longer at the top of the pyramid? How would we then realign with nature, technology, objects, and intelligent systems? And what does all this mean for our world here, now, today?


The STRP exhibition consists of 13 works, of which 8 works are premiering at STRP. We are super proud that we have been able to realize the ACT Award again. The winners of the ACT Award 2020 are Miyuki Oka, Nonhuman Nonsense and Antoine Bertin.

Participating artists of the exhibition are Anaïs Tondeur, Anna Ridler, Antoine Bertin, Dominique Koch, Emke Idema, Floris Kaayk, Justin Brice Guariglia, Forest 404, Marleine van der Werf, Miyuki Oka, Nonhuman Nonsense, Polymorf, and Universal Everything.

Besides these works in the EXPO, there will be a presentation by three Design Academy/ Information Design students. Soon more news!

STRP Scenarios #6 - #9

At the STRP Festival 2020 we will develop ‘Scenarios for the Post-Anthropocene’ and engage in conversation with scientists, critics, thinkers, artists, and designers. How do they view a future in which mankind is no longer a central being?

The ‘Post-Anthropocene’ concept is often viewed in a dystopian, negative light. STRP takes a more optimistic, yet critical approach. Let’s research, imagine and put ourselves in the mindset of the nonhuman, as much as our minds let us.


Four nights.
Four different concepts.
Four collaborations that we are proud of.

STRP explores the evening and the night with our partners.

Deep Hanging Out

STRP’s festival hangout. Here, friends and strangers meet to reflect upon STRP’s exhibition and the conversation itself. Together with artists and designers oneseconds, Arvid&Marie, KNOT Kollektiv en Circus Engelbregt, visitors partake in an everchanging conversation about the meaning of dialogue and meeting, while allowing oneself to be amazed and surprised by the encounters taking place throughout the festival.
