Opening Exhibition / Crossovers
Design Terminál 1051 Budapest, Erzsébet square 13. Open: 27th September – 3rd November Mon-Sun 12:00-20:00
Where are the boundaries of design today? What happens when designers trespass them, and what are the benefits for others in making use of design’s idiosyncratic thinking? How can the objects around us reflect or even shape today’s questions, dilemmas and new ideas?
The opening exhibition explores such questions through crossovers in design. More than sixty outstanding works have been selected from twelve countries which all expand the field of operation of design through enquiry. One-off pieces, experimental projects and award winning works show how design interacts with scientific research, biotechnology, digital manufacturing as well as traditions, craft and storytelling in shaping the human environment.
These collaborations among different genres reflect the shifting roles of designers as well as our changing relationship with material culture in the recent wake of network culture and its crises. The opening exhibition presents craft in its original sense of knowing how things work, visualising the crossovers which shape our world today.
