Open Call: 25th Biennial of Design – »Faraway, so close«

The Museum of Architecture and Design Ljubljana has just launched an open call for participation in FARAWAY, SO CLOSE – 25th Biennial of Design, curated by Angela Rui and Maja Vardjan. The call is open until 10 July 2016.

The call is dedicated to designers, architects, filmmakers, graphic designers, interaction designers, illustrators, writers, animators, photographers, researchers and other interdisciplinary agents who see the biennial as an experimental, collaborative platform for testing, developing and sharing their own approach and expertise within the issues and structure of the new biennial format.

The selected participants will work in teams, producing new scenarios based on frictions that emerge from the cohabitation of remote meanings and contemporary habits as emphasised in the curatorial statement. Each team will work with an international designer or architect like Matali Crasset, Didier Fiuza Faustino, mischer’traxler, Formafantasma, Point Supreme, Odo Fioravanti or Studio Folder.

designaustria-member mischer’traxler will work with their team on the theme »countryside reloaded«.
