Objectar el Món exhibition
Objectar el Món was an event based around the role of designers in tackling the key problem of our time: the need to rethink ways of coexistence between human and non-human forms of life with the goal of ensuring their - and our - survival.
To this end, we invited product design professionals to bring an object that, in their opinion, meets the material, functional, methodological, consumption or production characteristics needed in order to cease the destruction of the environment, or even initiate processes to restore it.
All the objects were exhibited to form a heterogeneous landscape that gave testimony to the diversity of problems we face, and also, the variety of positions we have to face them. A group of experts from different fields guided us through this landscape to broaden the common perspectives of the design scene on issues related to ecology.
