OFF THE GRID - Design Visions for the Economy

OFF THE GRID - Design Visions for the Economy


Thinking and naming the unthinkable are key motors of our economy. All changes, transformation, progress and even revolution are based on hypotheses and visions.


Our current economic system based on growth is still not suitable to achieve fair distribution of resources, education, nutrition and healthcare. We need strong ideas and visions for a new, future-justice oriented economy.


The exhibition will be a showcase of the latest stances on design that address the problem and aim at changing perspectives and illustrating alternatives through future-oriented concepts and design-fiction. Speculative design makes fictional reality tangible and serves as a catalyst for innovation.


Vernissage: Tuesday, February 23, 7 pm
