The XXII Triennale di Milano, Broken Nature: Design Takes on Human Survival, curated by Paola Antonelli, senior curator of Design and Architecture at MoMA, NY. It has been showcased from March 1 to September 1, 2019 at Triennale Milano.
The XXII Triennale is organized around an exhibition of several existing projects and six major commissioned experimental collaborations—among designers, engineers, and scientists. It considers projects that commit to the idea of repairing and building connections, at all scales, in all dimensions, and from all fields of design research, from synthetic biology and biodesign to co-creation, and from environmentally responsible construction to self-assembly and beyond. The exhibition underlines design approaches aimed not only at correcting humanity’s self-destructive course, but also at replenishing our exchange with the natural context into which we were born.
Broken Nature is an opportunity for us all to discuss matters of extreme importance for the world at large, as well as for the design and architecture community, which can and should play a vital role in making reparations with the world around us.
The thematic exhibition which includes some works commissioned specifically for Accurat, Formafantasma, Neri Oxman and Sigil Collective, is complemented by an ambitious public program of events–with conferences, panels, workshops, screenings, and performances–for people of all ages.
