Objects from our 21st-century ancestors

Community Engagement

Between April 14 and September 3, 2023, M21D developed a series of programs in association with the exhibition "Objects from our 21st-century ancestors" at Depot Boijmans Van Beuningen. Through these activities, visitors took on their own future perspective to see the city of Rotterdam, quotidian objects, and museum collections in a new way.  


2108 Rotterdam future tour

Welcome to the year 2108: Rotterdam Future Tours! The International Bureau of Reconstruction proudly presented a city tour in relation to the exhibition of artifacts unearthed during the Boijmans Depot excavation.

Are your objects future proof?

Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen and Museum of 21st Century Design invited guests to bring their objects and discover if they're future-proof. Here's what researchers from 2108 had to say.


Label writing workshop

Are you ready to travel through time? In this workshop, we looked at the Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen collection through the eyes of researchers in the year 2108. Visitors wrote their own labels and imagined the future of design.
