Design Museum’s auditorium
In its eighth edition, the HIAP Design Residency will for the first time in 2019 welcome three international practitioners for a transnational exploration into the contemporary culture of design practice. Under the title of “The Melting Platform” architects Anna Burlakova (RU) and Luke Jones (UK) and designer/performer Jérémy Gaudibert (FR) will engage with the sensations of instability that have become a distinct characteristic of the contemporary experience for the deep transformations we witness of our world’s both natural and technical substrates.
As in 2018, the Design Residency program will produce a series of events as an offer for dialog with the practitioners and an opportunity to engage discursively in reflections on current strands of thought and practice that are invested with conceptualizing current and formulating future cultures of our interactive-built environment. First in this series is this panel discussion in which the designers will talk about their motivations entering this year’s program and discuss their plans for their residency projects. Joining them on the panel will be educational curator at the Design Museum, Hanna Kapanen; programme director of Helsinki Design Week and Helsinki Design Weekly, Anni Korkman; and curator of the Design Residency program, Martin Born.
The Design Residency is a cooperative production by Helsinki International Artist Programme – HIAP, British Council and Strelka Institute in partnership with Design Museum Helsinki and Helsinki Design Week. It is supported by the Finnish Embassy in Moscow and the Finnish Consulate General and Finnish Institute in St. Petersburg.
Talk will take place at Design Museum’s auditorium on 5th June at 16:30-18:00.
