I’m looking forward to a one-month residency in March 2019 in Moscow, made possible by ProHelvetia.
As a designer and curator, my main motivation is to explore the relationships and connections between the political system and creative output. What are the real challenges and opportunities for the design discipline? Russia is a rapidly developing, consumer-oriented and powerful country with a long and important history. However, the free market economy is still very young and what about a post-Soviet design language? Moscow seems to be a perfect place to get to the bottom of the connections between the political system and design.
- What is design now? What is the purpose of design? What the possibilities/challenges?
- Does a national style exist anymore?
- How to understand the roots and to preserve them?
- Taking distance to understand more the DNA of Swiss Design
