“Margaret van Eyck began during the first weeks of my time as an artist-in-residence at post-academic institution Jan van Eyck Acamedie, in Maastricht, the Netherlands,” Berlin-based graphic designer Hagen Verleger tell It’s Nice That. “Upon arriving there, I realised that the academy and all its labs and workshops were named after historic figures – all of them male.” As a result, out of “wonderment and annoyance,” Hagen set out to create alternative names, eventually leading to the actual renaming of the institution.
