Design Beyond Production in Milan
For the fourth time, Z33 will present itself at the Design Week in Milan, from 9 to 12 April 2013.
In Milan, Z33 will be showing the research project Design Beyond Production. The exhibition focuses on the position of the maker in existing and near-future production processes.
New production systems (3D printing, home production, collaborative processes) have become a hot topic in the design world these past few years. With Design Beyond Production, Z33 aims to add certain crucial critical reflections to this discourse. Notwithstanding the positive side to the story, every design of a production system inherently pronounces a value judgment on the people in the production process. And the consequences for the people in the system are not always promising…
After the presentation in Milan, Design Beyond Production will be exhibited in Z33 in Hasselt (BE) (05.05 - 18.08.2013).
You can watch a movie at Domus.it in which Karen Verschooren (the curator) talks about the exhibition. Also Tal Erez and Tobias Revell (two exhibited designers) elaborate on their respective works.
Curator: Karen Verschooren (Z33)
This year, Z33 teams up with some of the most influential and groundbreaking design venues and designers of the moment at the LAP building in Ventura Lambrate, making it one of the most exciting spots to visit during the design week.
