27 May 2022 | Manifest I
This exhibition, by us, offers diverse answers to the question of what design can be and do today.
Collaborative design, interaction in complex systems, the economy of attention, ecological change, visual literacy, gender-neutral design, the messy practice of design ethnography, social responsibility, the value of ugliness, death futures, immersive technologies, identity and crisis, design as a transformational discipline - these are all topics that are put up for debate in this exhibition with passion, personal conviction and professional expertise.
The artist Tino Sehgal was very clear-sighted when he said that this unconditional trust in a self-fabricated future has something antiquated and authoritarian about it, which is why the more contemporary form of a manifesto would be a truly and genuinely open, global discussion between art and society.
So in this exhibit with a interactive installation, everyone must participate and contribute to the ÖFF manifesto.
