Eric van Hove brings the Mahjouba Initiative to Dartmouth

" Eric van Hove brings the Mahjouba Initiative to Dartmouth" by Madison Wilson, 9/18/18, The Dartmouth

Can a moped inspire change? Concept artist Eric Van Hove says yes.

Opening on Sept. 18, “Mahjouba at Dartmouth: a Collaboration with Eric Van Hove,” an exhibit that will open at the Strauss Gallery in the Hopkin’s Center, explores the College’s relationship with the artist and his new project, the Mahjouba Initiative.

The Mahjouba Initiative remakes cheap Chinese mopeds popular in Van Hove’s home of Marrakech, Morocco by using local artisans and materials. The moped runs on an electric engine, a far more ecologically sustainable model than the traditional explosive engine.

A Temporary Museum of Ideas in the Making

January 9 - April 29, 2018 - Reception: January 9, 5.45pm, Strauss Gallery, Hopkins Center, Dartmouth College.

A Temporary Museum of Ideas in the Making is an exhibition of 36 architectural models by Dartmouth students. The architectural model is the ultimate tool to explore, showcase, and test an idea from its concept to realization. It is a step before the building, or even the building itself. It is tangible, real. But it is also a seductive device that allows you to insert a miniature world, observe its habits, and imagine the new possibilities.

About

Public space has been vital to people and cities since ancient times as the designated space for dialogue, participation, collective activities, interaction and exchange, and essentially democracy. However, due to various social, political, and economic complexities, as well as technological advancements, public space has gradually transformed to less open, less democratic, less comfortable, less enjoyable, less “ours.” From one hand, codes, policies, and regulations reinforce limited use and accessibility, uncomfortable surfaces and furniture, and ubiquitous surveillance. From the other hand, the web culture has absorbed much of the dialogue and participatory practices that now occur more often in the digital realm. Public space is essentially not so “public” and not so “spatial.”
