This coming Sunday, 5 April, Dutch Design Week (DDW) ambassador, trend forecaster, educator and curator Lidewij Edelkoort can be seen at VPRO Tegenlicht. How will we emerge from the corona quarantine? As other people, in other societies, or will it be business as usual? Check out NPO2 at 22:15hr..

On the 5th of April it' s already been three weeks of home quarantine in the Netherlands and, by the looks of it, it will last a while. This weekend VPRO Tegenlicht (Dutch only) will discuss the consequences of the corona quarantine. How will we emerge from the quarantine? Will we suddenly be completely different people, in different societies, or will it just be business as usual again?

In this upcoming episode, VPRO Tegenlicht will talk to DDW ambassador and internationally renowned trend forecaster, educator en curator Lidewij Edelkoort. She will join in from an unexpected location, as the circumstances have forced her to stay in a completely deserted hotel in Cape Town. Besides Lidewij, psychiatrist Dirk de Wachter will also join in from his home in Antwerpen. What prospects do they see after this forced standstill?

Check out VPRP Tegenlight on NPO2 this Sunday at 22:15 hrs, or via NPO Start (live online).
