A ten day debate on the future of design
How can today’s design still be more than the proverbial brick in the wall that deprives us of sight on a better future? That was the starting point of The Wall, Nieuwe German Gestaltung #004, the fourth in a series of exhibitions on experimental and alternative design from Germany – a country that still is a model in the field of design to many, but keeps on ignoring this kind of alternatives at times when nearly everybody calls for a Massive Change. The exhibition at the Biennale Interieur is the first in the series to be organized outside of Germany. On initiative of state of DESIGN, BERLIN director Max Borka, and after a concept and in a scenography by Yasmine Benhadj-Djilali, fifty designers present one or more projects. But next to that the exhibition also serves as a platform, where curator Max Borka continuously debates the future of design –not just in Germany, globally- with participants, guests, and the public, on the spot, but also online, and starting from ‘Sinking, but still Singing’, a contribution he wrote for the Interieur catalogue.
