The Object Becomes


This movie tells the story of Belgian design at an historical moment that determines an important turning point in its role. One story, nine practices: the stories blend together to create a unity of space and time, building a single voice common to all.



Alexandre Humbert (1989, FR) is a designer and filmmaker who writes and constructs cinematographic objects. Graduated in 2011 from ESAD in Reims (FR) and from the Design Academy Eindhoven (NL) in 2013, he has since collaborated with a broad range of design studios and cultural institutions to stage objects through his movies. His understanding of the design process guides him to explore the intimate relationship existing between Humans and Objects through installations, fictions, documentaries and experimental films. Based between Paris and Amsterdam, his work has been presented internationally and is part of the collections of the Design Museum Gent (BE), Musée des Arts Décoratifs Paris (FR) and MUDAM Luxembourg (LU). In parallel to his practice, he teaches film construction at ENSCI Les Ateliers (FR) and Design Academy Eindhoven (NL) and works in many design schools in Europe on the subject.
