The Uncomfotable @ Subversives Design, NRW Forum

In May 2022 I participated in the Subversives Design exhibition in NRW Forum in Dusseldorf with 7 objects from the Uncomfortable collection.

Subversive design is critical design. It doesn’t offer any direct solutions. Instead, it questions the classical system’s status quo.

The exhibition space has been transformed into a warehouse where functional shelving systems house the pieces and a robot moves through the aisles transporting products. Instead of unique artistic pieces, the group exhibition shows products by contemporary designers who deal with some of the pressing issues of our time: climate change, digitalisation, and discrimination.

The exhibition was curated by Alain Bieber, artistic director of the NRW-Forum Düsseldorf, and Judith Winterhager, curatorial assistant of the NRW-Forum Düsseldorf.
